Is there a way to keeping my /tmp's cleaned out in FC?

Nothing in /tmp should be expected to survive a reboot.
In fact, some people like to run /tmp as a tempfs (temporary file
system) - only problem is, a tempfs can get full if you aren't careful.

But you can write an init script to delete it all at shutdown (or
startup). Or just do what I do - ignore it, if space ever gets tight -
then I boot into runlevel 3 and clear it (you don't want to clear it
with X running)

Then what about tmpwatch? Mine runs daily with 720 hours as the
parameter. Isn't this a problem?

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
