Lispy (136512) writes "I'm looking for a cheap DLNA/UPNP single-purpose solution that can stream audio from my NAS to my Hifi in the living room. I used to have an old G5 Mac with XBMC which died on me and now I am using my laptop to achieve this wich is less than elegant. Since there are no UPNP-Client applications for WebOS I can't use my phone to stream the audio. I would love to get a dirtcheap Android that can handle this or even an aging Palm Treo or anything. All it needs is Wifi and UPNP compatibility. How would the slashdot crowd tackle this? I do not want to use an old laptop, it should be really tiny, cheap and reasonaly easy to use." top
Lispy writes "Just wanted to inform the/. crowd that the latest Ubuntu Dapper xserver-core update breaks Ubuntus X-Server.
There is a note on ubuntuforums.org that explains how to fix this (its not that bad if you arent scared of a shell). But the main question is why this escaped them in the first place.
Breaking a lot of fresh converts X-Servers is pretty much telling them that Linux is even worse than what they were using before.
I think that things like this could really harm the image of this great distro especially for commercial roll-outs. What do you think?"
