    I’m attempting to move all writes to a 3rd partition on the SD Card (or maybe even a USB thumb drive) so that I can make the boot and root partitions read-only to prevent SD card corruption. I’ve currently changed several Retroarch directories such as save location, remap location, etc. to the 3rd partition and it works just fine.

    Now I’m trying to figure out which processes currently write to the boot/root partitions and whether or not I can disable them. I’ve been looking at this guide, and it covers the removal of several processes. Will disabling these processes interfere with the functionality of retropie/emulationstation? Also, what are the retropie/emulationstation specific processes that write to the SD Card?

    runcommand logs errors to /tmp/runcommand.log I’m not sure what else you may need to be concerned about though.

    Thanks. Do you know if it’s possible to send the log somewhere else?
