This has to be the strangest thing I have seen on Linux yet. It's almost like I'm running a live CD but clearly not. I did a standard raspberry install and have been using it for a long time. I wanted to update my date on boot and now realize the rc.local file does not work. I tried to add a line and on reboot the rc.local file is reverted. I made my changes with sudo and verified, reboot and it is back to default. I then set a root password and edited with su and wiped the file clean, save, rebooted. It's back to its default. What in the heck is going on here?
ok... so I just tried crontab and the same thing happened?
From what I read online it's a sd card issue, I guess I'm editing a ram drive? Can't anyone help on this. I'm not really used to this type of set up, sd cards, ram drives etc...I don't know where to start.
