Adding a path to flashable image

so… ive added a cron package based on cronie, which has a bitbake recipe, and flashed the image, however it wount start as there is no /var/spool directory on the filesystem, where do i hunt to add some defaults … default dirs… like /var/spool

I am on mobile right now so I can’t verify the details, but I did this once before for a different package. I think the relevant file is somewhere in meta-swi. Maybe try grep -r --include='*.bb*' 'install' meta-swi-extras. I remember there being a number of install commands in the file.
