I'm playing around with dsl 3.3 RC3 with frugal install.  I noticed when I install the linux-kernel-headers.dsl it over-writes the /usr directory.  ie. after installation the /usr dir only contains 'include' directory.

Then you can't do anything, not even reboot from command line because the 'sudo' command is gone.

It's possible to fix this problem if you download the dsl from the repository rather than using the mydsl tool - this way it will not be loaded.

Once you have the file, copy it to /ramdisk/tmp or similar - then, if you have the very useful user buttons for unpack, list and re-pack dsl added to emelFM, you can make a listing of the dsl.

Once you have the listing, you can use the following command to extract only the files you need and not the clobbering files:

gunzip -c /path-to-file/filename.dsl | tar -xvf - /path-within-dsl/filename

You can use wildcards to speed up the process. Once done, edit the file listing and re-pack the dsl using the emelFM button.

Just a side-note: you shouldn't have to use linux-kernel-headers in DSL anyways.
- kernelsource.dsl is the correct one for compiling for DSL
- linux-kernel-headers is for some other development kernel afaik
