i think i have a problem.

i did a manual frugal install and put all *.dsl and *.tar.gz that i want installed at startup in the root.
this works fine, the programs get installed and work well.

some of the myDSL i tried seem to change the owner:group or permissions of directories.

samba.dsl: /home/damnsmall dir
icewm-blue.dsl: /tmp dir
bittorent-dsl: /tmp dir

Is this a common problem?
Can it be solved?

Yes, it is a problem..
Especially for HDinstall users.
Even more so for users of earlier versions of DSL  ( pre 0.7 )

I have been actively rebuilding the extensions for the past several days,
correcting perms/owners, removing overwritten directories, etc...

Keep an eye on this thread..;t=56

Your correct that with a LiveCD or frugal, many of these problems are not
immediately apparent in your use of the additions.
While the new additions seem to work fine at first, eventually,
you start to notice little things, like icons on the desktop
refusing to start the associated apps, programs shutting down by themselves,
CPU's going crazy, etc...

Feedback like yours is essential to resolving these issues quickly.
Your type of install will make it easy to resolve this..
Simply keep an eye on the repository, and upgrade your .dsl's and .tar.gz's
to the latest builds when they appear. Each new build improves upon the last
from feedback like yours.
