Home is in  RAM.  Use your hard drive.

What about if i save in /usr/local, will be it still in RAM? Does all linux distros's Home directory stored in RAM? I have begin a sad realization here about how Linux utilize RAM as storage not as medium between apps and kernels.

Does all linux distros's Home directory stored in RAM?No. You might want to consider setting up a persistent home directory. Have you taken the time to read this:

I built the 96.43.20 extension. Most of the NVidia extensions were built by Arslan S.

The extension I built does not support your card, see:

You might want to read through this thread:

You will also find the build scripts I used in reply #8.

I was able to build version 304.125 (for legacy cards).
I removed  /usr/lib/*tls*.*
and I think to remember the installer is confused about
/user/local/lib/X11/
vs
/user/local/lib/xorg/

Misalf I believe you're right about the X11 vs Xorg confusion..   I just built nvidia.ko version-346.72
now to begin testing..

Yes. Before you start, copy your  tce/mydata.tgz  to  tce/mydata.tgz.original. This way you have a backup in case you mess up.
Add the  home=sda2  boot code. Reboot your machine. Edit your  /opt/,filetool.lst  file and remove any entries listing home.
Run a backup. Do another reboot to verify your home is persistent.

I already performed a persistent storage bootcode, i did backup my mydata.tgz.original and deleted all entries with /home in filetool.lst, but all my files are completely wiped out and did not transfer to hdd. Also my Seamonkey browser malfunctioned because it was originally stored in ~/tc directory. How can I determine now if it uses the hdd as storage?

For home to be persistent without backing up home then you'll need to specify where to make home's permanent storage using a boot code.
your bootcodes indicate home is located on the same partition as a swapfile?? 
Also why use curly braces swapfile={sda2} ??    (I think swapfile=sda2 is correct)

for example, here I specify where to store my permanent home:   home=UUID="8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62"
Code: [Select]
menuentry "TC-6-x86 Vesa" {
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62
linux /linux/vmlinuz-3166 tz=GMT quiet waitusb=5:UUID="8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62" tce=UUID="8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62"/tc6-x86 opt=UUID="8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62" home=UUID="8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62" mydata=mydata32.vesa
initrd /linux/rootfs-630.gz /linux/modules-3166.gz
}
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ showbootcodes
BOOT_IMAGE=/linux/vmlinuz-3166 tz=GMT quiet waitusb=5:UUID=8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62 tce=UUID=8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62/tc6-x86 opt=UUID=8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62 home=UUID=8eb3e1f8-c1ee-2bac-f66d-070f73960f62 mydata=mydata32.vesa

I returned to my last post to expand on the persistent home issue (but found my time was up and no longer able to edit!!) 
your bootcodes indicate home is located on the same partition as a swapfile??    A swapfile is for use when a fat filesystem is available, however home afaik can not reside on a fat partition.   So which is it??

Yes. I have misspecified my swap partition when I reformatted my machine. Is there any side effects to it?

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ showbootcodes
initrd=/tce/boot/core.gz quiet home=sda2 swapfile={sda2} waitusb=5:UUID="3b489518-7cda-4146-b00c-4222fa977793" tce=UUID="3b489518-7cda-4146-b00c-4222fa977793" BOOT_IMAGE=/tce/boot/vmlinuz
tc@box:~$ fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks  Id System
/dev/sda1               1          66      525312  82 Linux swap
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary
/dev/sda2   *          66        9730    77624320  83 Linux

How can I verify Im using my HDD as persistent storage?

Hi Stone.Giant
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~/guilib/grabber$ cat /proc/mounts | grep /dev/sd
/dev/sda3 /mnt/sda3 ext3 rw,relatime,barrier=1,nodelalloc,data=ordered 0 0
/dev/sda3 /home ext3 rw,relatime,barrier=1,nodelalloc,data=ordered 0 0
/dev/sda3 /opt ext3 rw,relatime,barrier=1,nodelalloc,data=ordered 0 0
tc@box:~/guilib/grabber$
This shows my  home  and  opt  directories are persistent.
