    8    Here is what I am seeing, sorry my previous reply was so sparse got busy and forgot to get back to it.
    9 
    10    anyways what happens is IF I compile a alpha/nightly image with the SDL librarys and I DD that image to a usb drive, the SDL librarys work fine. However if I install from the same USB stick to a real drive, it looses the symlinks or library links.

    12    I don't know if it is entirely related but I though it might be worth a mention becuase both problems seem to be similar in nature, data is being lost during instilation.
    13 
    14    My other question is why does the cache never seem to deplete/count down/unload ? IE if you use activity monitor and you select CACHE it may idle fine at 192mb, but when you do a disk copy,file copy,install the cache stays full at say 4000mb and never seems to depopulate. Also sync does not seem to help here. I suspect the issue might actually be in the file system code and that its not clearing the cache and ensuring that all data is transferred to a drive, this can be easily noted by trying to unmount a drive after a file copy. I have noticed this issue is not present on a live CD running a installer but ONLY when you install from the desktop. All problems are persistent and consistent in that behavior.

    16   I hope this bit of observation may help shed light on the subject.
