On an Asus eee 900, using Puppeee 1.0 (4.31, more or less), I'm trying to symlink a Chrome cache, Claws email directory, and Rainlendar to my /mnt/home, which is my internal sdd drive.

So I'm booting off an sd card, but accessing all sfs's, including the OS and pupsave, off the ssd drive. From my syslinux.cfg:

default vmlinuz initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=ideflash fastboot nousbwait=1

Every time I make the symlink, upon reboot, the directory returns to /root, sometimes empty, sometimes not. So I run this script effectively at start-up:

rm -r directory /root/.rainlendar2/backups
sleep 1
rm -r directory /root/.cache
sleep 1
rm -r directory /root/.claws-mail
sleep 1
rm -r directory /root/Mail
sleep 1
ln -s /mnt/home/backups /root/.rainlendar2/backups
sleep 1
ln -s /mnt/home/.cache /root/.cache
sleep 1
ln -s /mnt/home/.claws-mail /root/.claws-mail
sleep 1
ln -s /mnt/home/Mail /root/Mail
sleep 1

Still, does anybody have an idea why I need this script? Is it my syslinux file command?
