Connect the PC to  your router with an ethernet cable .. then open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
then REBOOT

Once rebooted, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
Now follow the original instructions again.

Does the feed play if you click on the picture (to pause it) then click on it again (to play) ?

ie. does it play for a while, then stall again ?

It's not that it's on an external hard drive, that would make no difference as the kernel is the same.

The problem must be with the keyboard .. either the kernel gets the keycodes from the keyboard, or it doesn't .. what I'm saying is "some" laptops assign non-standard keycodes to certain keys on their built in keyboards.

I'd be pretty certain that REISUB would work from a different keyboard .. say a USB keyboard ;)

Can I ask, how much RAM do you have installed in that PC ?

The reason the keyboards on "some" laptops require AltGr is that they use none standard key codes.

I'm guessing this just simply won't be possible on the Hitachi for the same reason.

I's possible that adding a USB keyboard, then using that would work.

You've lost me with the Xfce wallpaper thing .. you mean something that automatically changes your wallpaper after a chosen amount of time ?

Try the fix for gecko-mediaplayer documented on the old forum .. here:
http://peppermintos.net/viewtopic.php?p=42150#p42150

Also, make sure you have both ubuntu-restricted-extras and lubuntu-restricted-extras installed.

You might want to consider formatting the SDcard as say EXT4
mounting it via /etcfstab
and following this page to move your /home directory to it:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving

Be aware, you'll not be able to remove the card from then on without the system becoming unbootable (at least into a GUI).

Or you could attempt to get creative with AUFS:

OK, it's not a bug it's the way blkid caches it's output.

blkid needs superuser permission to scan block devices, so needs "sudo", but after it's run the first time it will create a cache of the output at:-
/dev/.blkid.tab

when you subsequently run it without sudo, it's not scanning the block devices, it's reading the contents of that cache (via a symlink at /etc/blkid.tab)

Splained ?
