i try to avoid modifying the root file system.

0) i am of the opinion that when i boot my kindle it ought to work; making changes to the root file system is the best way to make it do otherwise. =]

1) there are heavy space constraints on the root file system.
iirc, vanilla it has about 150 mb free.

2) if you want an exe in your path, use a symlink.

3) if you want a userspace folder in your path, modify /etc/profile.

in short, there isn't any really good reason to modify the root filesystem for drop-in executables and the first rule of *nix administration is to minimize the use of privileged operations. qed, i don't modify the root filesystem.

Did you tell people to put your apps in /mnt/us/system just for simplicity? I run kaffeine & kinamp & fbout so much that it made the code so much cleaner-looking to get them in my path. Is there a reason you know of why I shouldn't add things to /usr/bin? I haven't had any probs yet, but I haven't taken the time to snoop everywhere yet.
