I added to the PATH in rc.local. Why won't it stick? Also, can I delete Apps?
Two questions. I have Puppy 4.1 retro on a USB thumbdrive. Persistence is working fine except that I cannot permanently change the PATH. I need to add a directory that I created and have it in the path on boot up. I modified /etc/rc.d/rc.local but it isn't persistent. Is this because my directory isn't present during initialization? My directory is in the pup_save file, however.
I think remastering with the PATH modified would create a build that would be persistent. Is that what I need to do?
Also, I'm wanting to use this in an embedded project that won't need some of the apps, like mpaint, etc. Can they be deleted or uninstalled safely? PET Package Manager only allows install/uninstall of programs that I don't currently have on it. If I can't remove them then I will live with it. It would just be nice to regain the storage space since the apps will never be run. I have another USB that I can put the full package on. Most of them are named "default" so I don't want to damage anything. Can anyone tell me how or if it is worth the effort?
