Onion doesn't keep installed software after reboot
I am using the Onion2+,
firmware version 0.1.10 b160,
and an Arduino dock.
I installed python and it worked fine, but after rebooting the device
python is not found, this is true also for other stuff like the onion-console-base
so after rebooting, i get this directory list screen
tried to use 'halt' command before rebooting as was suggested here for another problem,
but halt does not seem to do any thing,
also tried halt -f, with no success

It's true that halt doesn't work, even with the -f option. But you don't need it. I think the problem is that your Omega is using tmpfs storage instead of flash storage on the device. I think a reset will fix this issue.
Can you show the output of the command:
that's df -h output:
Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/root 5.5M 5.5M 0 100% /rom
tmpfs 61.4M 76.0K 61.3M 0% /tmp
/dev/mtdblock6 25.1M 816.0K 24.3M 3% /overlay
overlayfs:/overlay 25.1M 816.0K 24.3M 3% /
tmpfs 512.0K 0 512.0K 0% /dev
how do i do the rest?
root@Omega-5BE1:~# df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/root 5632 5632 0 100% /rom tmpfs 62872 84 62788 0% /tmp /dev/mtdblock6 25664 764 24900 3% /overlay overlayfs:/overlay 25664 764 24900 3% / tmpfs 512 0 512 0% /dev root@Omega-5BE1:~# df -h Filesystem Size Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/root 5.5M 5.5M 0 100% /rom tmpfs 61.4M 84.0K 61.3M 0% /tmp /dev/mtdblock6 25.1M 764.0K 24.3M 3% /overlay overlayfs:/overlay 25.1M 764.0K 24.3M 3% / tmpfs 512.0K 0 512.0K 0% /dev
Maybe you performed a factory reset/restore accidentally by a too long Reset press.
You should repeat the First Time Setup and install the previously installed package(s) again.

Seems we are finally there, thank you,
but it wasn't an easy ride,
I did the factory reset,
and then in the console it did wifisetup,
it found my network but did not connect,
in the omega-xxxx.local/ i got again the annoying directory listing,
so i downloaded the latest image file copied to the onion and did 'sysupgrade -n'
and this did the trick, at least for now
@Michael-Lustig I am also facing the similar issue with my Omega2,
Will be doing the same steps as you did and see if the issue resolves for me. Thanks for a detailed solution
I had similar issues with files and installed software not persisting after reboots (which I had to do by manually pulling the power since the reboot command was ignored). After disabling the wifimanager my issue went away
/etc/init.d/wifimanager stop /etc/init.d/wifimanager disable
