usr-merge fix for kirkstone container

December 03, 2023 — BarryK

On my Lenovo desktop PC, I have been updating the EasyOS installation from before the change to usr-merge folder hierarchy.

Running Easy after having updated to 5.6.4, clicked on the "kirkstone" icon and got the desktop in a container, except a couple of broken icons and the wallaper didn't display.

One problem was /mnt/wkg/containers/kirkstone/.session/usr/sbin was an actual folder, created from before usr-merge. The 'globicons' file had a path "/usr/sbin" whereas it should now be "/usr/bin". These issues are now fixed, see commit:

So, after 5.6.5 is released, you will click on "kirkstone" and get a correct desktop.
