I’m using the latest mysql cookbook, and finding that on a thinly provisioned MySQL server with attached disk for MySQL, the “tmpdir” is hardcoded in /etc/mysql-default/my.cnf to be “/tmp”. This is a problem.
I’m happy to insert values in an /etc/mysql-default/conf.d/tmpdir.cfg, but those can be obscure when people simply read /etc/my.cnf. Can I get any traction to make that a setting in the LWRP?
