Re: [K12OSN] Emergency...please help



Not really.  A lot of daemons and processes store things like sockets in /tmp 
and removing them can cause issues.  My general rule of thumb is to delete 
things older than a couple of weeks that are normal files, or directories 
created by processes that I know are done using them.
