I'm running the embedded/bootable DSL 0.9.2 on my 256Mb flash drive, and only really have one problem: despite all my best efforts, and scouring these forums and the DSL docs, I can't work out how to ensure that myDSL apps will always be stored to the pen drive, to be installed and ready when I reboot.
I've heard they should be saved either into /opt, or into the root directory. Tried that - the apps were gone next time around. I added the whole /opt directory to filetool.lst, and tried again - no luck.
From one quarter, I heard that I might need to partition my pen drive and add a second partition for saving myDSL apps onto, so they are persistent. Has anyone tried this, and if so, how did they set up the partition and mount it for use?
Alternatively, can I have myDSL apps backed up to the pseudo-harddrive (along with my other settings - themes, Firefox stuff, etc.), so I will always have aMSN, xpenguins and my other favourites waiting for me at next reboot?
Sorry if I'm missing the obvious here, but I really have tried hard to find this out for myself, and nothing I've attempted so far seems to have worked. Thanks for any help/advice you can give - I really like having Linux on a pen drive, and the DSL team have done a great job with it!
All the best,
