Why do all apps have access to all folders? That's because that's the explicit purpose of external storage, to share data between applications that have not necessarily been designed to work together. If an application you use is storing private data in external storage, stop using that application. Application developers and users alike often got the ...

Folder level permissions are not a good choice for sdcard (whether it is emulated or external). It makes things more complicated. By default, sdcards are mounted noexec, no binaries are able to execute from sdcard. Needless to mention, many external sdcards at the moment are formatted with fat32, permissions arent an option for them. Every app has their ...

Thanks for the tip Vedran! To run GUI program you don't need the full xfce4 desktop install. To save memory and space just use the window manager, xfwm4, it works great on its own. apt-get install xfwm4 Then run your gui program as above, e.g. running leafpad text editor: DISPLAY=127.0.0.1:0.0 leafpad & Of course you need to first install whichever ...

You seem to mix up inetd and xinetd configuration and paths - use a config for one or the other. You may also want to consider to specify the service as type "unlisted" to avoid the need of it being added to /etc/services - as you didn't mention you did add your service, I suppose you didn't.

As a user, and not a developer, this is not an effect you should concern yourself with. For operations like disk defragmentation or use of flash memory as virtual memory, the sustained high disk write rates can wear out flash memory quickly. But "normal" usage by a human will not produce enough writes to create a wear issue. Let's take the sleep app as an ...
