Help on building an HTPC
I am trying to make an HTPC, but since I want it quiet, I am trying to find a way to install some distribution to a (16gb) USB drive.
I've tried Ubuntu's startup USB disc, but even after installing the restricted package, I can't run movies (they close immediately after being opened). I suppose this is not the intended usage of a live distribution, but would be happy if someone has an idea what's the problem.
I am considering using other distributions out there, but I need your help choosing the right one. I want Firefox + Samba + Codecs and an easy way to configure the nvidia card to support 1920x1080 (TV is connected via a VGA cable).
Thank you in advance
