Note: This may already be fixed with latest version of OSMC.
Note: My device was not detected in Raspberry Pi Model B (older model) because apparently, it can’t provide enough power to it. It does work with powered USB hub though.

This is an experiment in which I wanted to see if it is possible to run apache on one server and have www directory in a different server (physical or virtual). I don’t know the possible benefits of such a system or a scenario where this could be helpful, neither am I aware of different ways to achieve the same. But I tried it and am posting the results anyways. 😀

If you have installed your system via netinstall or by selecting packages one by one, or if you somehow removed some gnome packages, you may be missing some menu items. I noticed that I did not have some entries in System>Administration menu, namely, “Network”, “Services”, “Time and Date” and “Users and Groups”. I tried to search for them in Synaptic and Apt-file but failed to locate the exact package. So, I did some hit and trial and found the package was “gnome-system-tools”. I just installed it via synaptic and the menu entries were back.

I have recently installed Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3 with iATKOS 3 v2 disk as guest OS in VirtualBox 3.2.12 with Debian host. After fixing the video resolution issue, I noticed that there was no sound. However, VirtualBox Forum user OmegaX has written a sound driver for Mac OS X 10.5.x and 10.6.x. It can be downloaded from here. Since I don’t have Xcode installed, and since I did not want to go through the hassle of installing the kext manually, I downloaded the binary installer, unpacked it by double clicking on it and installed it. It seems to take forever, but it installs successfully. The sound is working fine after a reboot.
I have installed iATKOS S3 v2 inside VirtualBox running on Debian. It can be simply installed like any other Operating Systems, but if you choose Operating System as Mac OS X Server, you must uncheck Enable EFI in the settings dialog.

I have installed Firefox 4 in my Debian Testing installation from Launchpad PPA. It is quite stable and I have decided to use it instead of Firefox 3. Most of the addons I used is compatible with Firefox 4 by now. However, the version of Greasemonkey available in Mozilla Firefox Addons Site is not compatible with Mozilla Firefox v4 latest build. To install the latest nightly build of Greasemonkey, I went to Greasemonkey Nightly Download and installed it. However Greasefire is not available, we can install userscripts directly from Userscripts website for now.
