Re: IP configuration

/etc/resolv.conf

So for you, the file should contain:

Re: IP configuration

Can you ping an internet address such as http://www.google.com? ping google.com If not, then you're probably missing DNS settings in your /etc/resolv.conf file. Something like the following is typical of a home network, where 192.168.0.1 is the address of the router which itself maintains DNS config...

Re: storing data on USB drive

Yes it's possible. What you'll be looking to set up is a file sharing solution such as vsftpd, nfs or samba and configure those programs to share the top level directory of the drive.

There's plenty of information on these forums and the web on how to set up these programs :-)

Unfortunately no.

When you say unsupported do you mean that it might work but no one can give tech support as it's unlikely to work, or it flat out doesn't work full stop? My understanding is that Flash for mobile has been discontinued, and they've never supported the Raspberry Pi's SoC. Despite popular opinion, dev...

You would need to jump to the command line and run something to the effect of: sudo mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/midori/ However, Adobe Flash is unsupported on the Raspberry Pi, so it will not work.
