Almost, it's: umount /tmp

comment linux + increase temporary the /tmp partition for installation
Yes. If you don't want it permanently no need to mess with fstab in the first place. Just do the mount on the command line: mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /tmp -o size=2G. Adjust the 2G to your needs.

comment linux + increase temporary the /tmp partition for installation
The UUID is only required for swap, not for the tmpfs. If you already have swap set up you can ignore that line. Tmpfs doesn't require a UUID because it's not a disk partition. And you can't use that UUID. Find out your UUIDs with lsblk -f.

comment Is there an Evergreen Linux distribution?
You can use unattended-upgrades (at least on Debian derivatives) or just use a cron job for a general solution. No need for a dedicated distro.

Mount /tmp as tmpfs. Or maybe you can utilise the (existing) /dev/shm using symlinks.

echo "" does write a newline to the file. To truncate it use :> <file> or echo -n > <file> (if supported).

comment Can I run 1 install on different PCs?
It depends. Read up the system/hardware requirements of the version of CentOS you intend to run and compare that with the specs of the machines in question. Then you have your answer.

comment How can I add new character after each line?
I can't reproduce your issue. What version of awk and what OS are you using? What's the output of printf '%s\n%s\n' foo bar | awk '{print $0"A"}'?

comment How to use cp -u on a Solaris system which does not support the -u option?
If your shell supports the if [ "$src" -nt "$dst ]; then … construct you can use that one (however, not it's not in POSIX). Do you have pax or rsync available? That might be the easiest solution.

comment Connect to a pc which is in external network using ssh
This question is unintelligible. You might want to add more details or rephrase it to increase the chance of getting a response. As I understand you want to connect to a host with a certain IP address (68.10.25.24) via ssh? What's wrong with ssh 68.10.25.24?

comment Create a UEFI bootable USB stick from an ISO image with GParted
Why do you limit yourself to a particular tool that is unsuitable for the job? GParted is a graphical partition editor, it's not a tool to create boot disks. What's wrong with just writing the image to the usb drive like cat debian-live-8.2.0-amd64-gnome-desktop.iso > /dev/sdX? I believe the Debian iso's are UEFI bootable.

comment Create a UEFI bootable USB stick from an ISO image with GParted
@KWubbufetowicz You're (almost) right. Typo there, I meant cat file.iso > /dev/sdX not cp. Since you can't edit the comments and I don't like the wrong command being there even upvoted I'll delete it and repost the corrected version.

comment Create a UEFI bootable USB stick from an ISO image with GParted
@FreeSoftwareServers That's incorrect. Although GPT is part of the EFI specification, in practice GPT and UEFI can be conceived as two separate entities because BIOS boot works with GPT and MBR as does UEFI boot. It's about the ESP (EFI System Partition markes as “boot”) which is a preferably FAT32 formatted partition containing the UEFI firmware, regardless if GPT or MBR is used.
