move XBMC library from raspbmc to Xbian

I have spent a long time to tidy my library on raspbmc. I have performance problem with raspbmc. I found Xbian better in that respect. my question is, how can I move my library over to Xbian? is there any folder I can copy over harmlessly? PS: I don't need my settings really. just library would be f...

Re: emulate windows 95 on Pi?

I speak from much experience. Do you have any idea how bad Win95 was as an OS, or indeed any Win for that except maybe 3.11. Why oh why would you want to kill the little Pi with something like that. WinTel have already destroyed the IT industry, don't you do it to the Pi. I'm not actually going to ...

Re: Debian Hard Float (armhf) for RPi

Do you control the nat? If so then just forward a port and use ssh or whatever. If not then what I personally do is setup a tunnel using vtund. Of course this is only practical if you have somewhere you can use as the other end of the endpoint. unfortunately I have no control over NAT. company netw...

thanks. bummer. I guess I cant use logmein on RPi. my Pi is behind NAT and I was trying to reach it via logmein.

I don't think there is anything else for that?
