I've started this thread because xdsl is a super fast distro, and what I personally use the most. But it is also very Quirky , so hopefully this thread can save everyone some time.
Ok so I'll kick off with a couple with a couple of tips.
use this comand if something has crashed or still running in the background (if you wondered why more memory was being used than it should be) ctrl,alt,del shuts down the session and typing exit gets you back to the desktop.
avoiding the "cloop" (please mount the media containing option directory and try again) problem.
If you get an error message with any of the above in, and find you can't install any uci apps, then you've encoutered the dreaded cloop problem. This has been solved in newer versions of dsl, but not in xdsl 0.5. Now I don't know how to solve this, but to aviod it try not to use uci apps as much as possible. Unmout the uci app before closing down, by double clicking on uci file in /tmp or /home/dsl. If you permenantly mount a uci app, then delete user.tar.gz file in the directory of ur app whithin the /opt directory, before you use it.
OK that will do for now, please add your tips to this thread
