Re: how do I complete boot before login

I'm auto logging in and running a script. I don't trust the state I'm in because boot has not completed.
I just want to know how to not have these things run in background.

I see...what are you using to mount it now?
I use some small nylon Hex Standoffs like http://amzn.com/B00137PXNS along the esge of the board in places where the nuts would not damage anything.

Re: Perl - installing modules

my plan that I have used on Intel based debian is to download and build by hand the normal:

perl Makefile.PL
make

I expect it will be slow, but I expect it will work.
