Re: Sabnzbd

Have a look in your logs, eg. /var/log/kern.log and /var/log/syslog - anything unusual there, such as stacktraces?

Try adding "smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N" to the end of cmdline.txt.

Re: Usb as sd.

The Pi doesn't support USB booting only booting from the SD Card slot is possible. You could still automount your USB drive on boot with statically linked folders but the OS can only boot from the SD Card slot first. Richard S. Not entirely true - the kernel must boot from SD card but the rest of t...

Re: puTTY

Just be aware that allowing internet access to Raspbian is not a very good idea without taking some basic security precautions, such as disabling password login to the pi account (use public/private keys instead). At the very, very least, you must change the default pi password to something much str...

Re: RPi not suitable as a media center

The thing is, the OPs criticisms are pretty weak - to the point of being trollish. The lack of proprietary streaming services is not the fault of the hardware, as they'll also be missing on quad-core x86 hardware. If the OP is claiming the Pi is an unsuitable media center, then so is an x86 PC with ...

DNS issues can slow down SSH authentication - are you sure your network is resolving local hostnames correctly?

Try adding "UseDNS no" to /etc/ssh/sshd_config and see if it has any effect.

Yes, that and the invalid values when running concurrent tests would suggest a concurrency issue. I've opened issue #132.

Many thanks for your suggestion to run the little script. I'll also update my firmware to the latest (fingers crossed this time), and assuming I can boot will test again.
