Re: Plugging in a DVB-S USB-Stick does not throw dvb-usb eve

No, there is no flash and will never be and gnash does not really work. Watching youtube videos is possible in many ways, but not inside the browser.

Re: digital signage homemade doesn't correctly works

a blank answer is more useful than your last answer I already gave that answer. Being "displeased" with facts isn't very helpful. Either use a faster computer or create a design that the RPi can handle or write your own software, that makes use of the capabilities of the GPU. You might also have a ...

To get the most recent kernel you must use:

But you may risk to get something that does not work as it should.

Re: Cannot use 320MB of RAM!

There must be something completely wrong with your system. If "top" - which usually needs about 0,4% of memory - is eating up all your memory and the system starts to swap, your system must be completely corrupted. Why could your Raspbian image not mount the root file system? Then your SD card must ...

It works in Minimal Kiosk Browser (with JavaScript enabled), but all kinds of scrolling, moving or flashing stuff are really too hard for the RPi CPU.

BTW, it's bad for human perception, too.

Yes, this is possible and you will be able to use omxplayer for audio files (takes much less resources than all other audio players).
