I remember reading in Puppy's Barry blog when he was building out his Pi systems that he used 5-way expansion to his various RAM cards and devices...that should help? I have a netbook, laptop and xeon server that cannot use standard hard drives for various reasons, so I use a read-only boot device and save out to another. Joan in Reno

If you're just using it as a display and a bridge to cloud storage that would be sufficient. I guess root filesystem were r/o, set noatime, and all logs went to ramdisk with strict growth /cleanup limits, but store all modifiable files to a separate partition or usb key. Then you can store files, but at least you stay bootable in the face of any corruption. -- John.
