Hy! I'm new with DSL. (excuse my English)

Everytime when I open my DSL, after boot, I whant to open a app automaticaly (e.g.: Firefox).
So I tryed to edit the .xinitrc file, but everytime when I reboot, my system wouldn't save .xinitrc file and he restores to default.

PS: I'm using VMware
thx

Unless you have a HDD install, your problem is probably that you don't have the backup and restore systems set up.

The DSL Wiki has a page (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/persistence.html) on how to set this up.

In VMware I tried to add a USB FLASH, a virtual drive, I use even share folder but my DSL won't recognize nothing. What should I do next?

PS: I don't understand the DSL wiki page yet..

I haven't used VMware so I'm afraid I can't help you set up a drive.

The first paragraph under the title "Backup and Restore" on the Wiki page describes that process as well as I could here.
