Running with MMC/SD - Empties every reboot

    I've successfully added a SD card to my wrt54gl, the mounting and installing onto such card works perfectly.

    However, everytime I reboot the router, the whole content on the SD card is gone. It's as if the automatic mounting at boot clears everything that was previously present.

    Is there a way to avoid that?
    What I did to mount the SD card at bootup is this

    created the following files :
    /etc/modules.d/40-mmc - with the command : mmc
    /etc/fstab - with the command : /dev/mmc/disc0/part1 /tmp/mmc vfat defaults 0 0

    Created the script
    /etc/init.d/S51mount - command :
    mkdir /tmp/mmc
    mount /tmp/mmc


    It mounts successfully the SD every reboot, but as I said, the SD card is empty. I'd like to be able to conserve the installed ipkg on it.

    Also, Id like to know which config file I have to edit in order to not have to type manually into the console the following commands :

    export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/tmp/mmc/bin:/tmp/mmc/sbin:/tmp/mmc/usr/bin:/tmp/mmc/usr/sbin

    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib:/usr/lib:/tmp/mmc/usr/lib:/tmp/mmc/lib

    These commands are to allow running ipk apps from the MMC

    Thank you all!
