Hey Robert,


the file is moved to /opt .... BIGGE problemo ....

I wanted to upgrade from 0.7 to 4.0 on my harddrive install and i hit this problem:

root : hda1
/opt : hdb1 ( I run a webserver under opt , xampp )

normally I put 1 line in to mount /opt on hdb1 , but that's impossible now. Can you please move again to /usr/bin  ?Or has it other reasons ?

In this way we can upgrade the harddisk version eassier... without everytime doing the job of installing again our appz in /opt ...
/etc/fstab is at every boot overwritten by knoppix ( which is good because I use softraid. also ...
Do you have another solution ?

Kind regards and keep up the good work.

Hi Robert!

It seems as DSL at boottime looks for myDSL apps and myDSL optional apps two times and the result is duplicated in the menu. I discovered this on dsl-4.1RC3-embedded. Hope it's of any use. By the way what rootCommand is necessary to make a fluxbox style also change the background? In RC2 xsri worked well but not in RC3.

Thanks for all and have fun,
