Bug #9156: Not able to get tmp dir to work with Ruby 2.0.0

Backport: 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN


I just migrated to Ruby 2.0.0 from 1.9.2 and I'm getting errors when trying to handle files because I can't get tmp directories to work.

If you check this file and look at line 29 you'll see that a check on world_writable? has been added, but the file should not be world writable (prepended by !). So tmp dir are now restricted? What should I do to set up my machine? (I'm using Rails 4)

Here's the error I get:

ArgumentError: could not find a temporary directory
When I try to hit Dir:tmpdir

/home/ben/.rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p353/lib/ruby/2.0.0/tmpdir.rb: in tmpdir
raise ArgumentError, "could not find a temporary directory" if !tmp

Thanks
Ben
