Well the last option (changing .xinitrc) doesn't work with qemu in windows. So I guess I have to try the other option.

Again because your backup is not working. Why, because you are not running DSL. You are running your own remaster. Sorry, I cannot support custom remasters.

I think it is unfornate that you fail to mention this fact in the many posts that you are making. Soon, it will be like the boy who cried wolf once too often.

Hi again!

First some fact. I'm presently running dsl-embedded as is with no changes at all. I'm running it from an usb-drive booted with a cdrom because my bios doesn't support booting directly from usb. Under these conditions it is not possible to mount /mnt/hdb from for example. Yes it works running from within windows but since I have an 4+ years old laptop it works a little bit on the slow side. So usually I use DSL as laid out above and make no mistake I REALLY LIKE DSL AND ALWAYS HAVE SINCE I STARTED USING IT. And my backup is working just fine in the setup described above. But I can't backup to /mnt/hdb as I would like to because of the reasons explained earlier. I currently have a backup on sda1 and hda1 (just in case). Now I think I have explained the situation. I APPRECIATE ALL THE HARD WORK THAT MAKES THIS DISTRO SO GREAT. I just try to share my own small findings with others, nothing else.

Have fun Y'all,
regards meo
