Great, Gordon, thanks for your reply. I've being running linux for a couple years now...several years on and off before that...mostly Ubuntu, but Fedora and Redhat too - so, I'm fairly confortable with Linux. Maybe a couple of the old tutorials messed my config up. I will set something up new again and try to do it the straight forward way. I also have faster SD Disk (class 8) coming soon by mail, plus the newer Pi with more memory). I don't like the soft-float
Debian version - I've already noticed that things are buggier with it, and it's too slow.
As for Raspbian, I did installed it on another SD Disk, and it's great.
How do you shell into it? Somehow I did manage to shell into it a couple of times, but I'm not sure what the proper way is? Or is there a way to until XBMC on "hard-float" Debian as well (like I did on my Mint Linux laptop!).
I'm looking forward to doing this tutorial on RPI - http://www.instructables.com/id/Tweet-a ... /?ALLSTEPS
. I did this on my Mint Linux laptop, and it works great, but had to rewrite the twitter parsing logic to be less intensive and friendlier with the Twitter API. Happy to share my code with anyone that's interested.
