I installed 11.10 on an Intel Pentium M processor 1.40GHZ, Memory 733.2 MiB, Disk 38.6GB, OStype 32 bit.
I live in Mozambique were downloading software is charged by MB and is very expensive.
Previously I downloaded 12.04 which cost around £10 but couldn't install it since it needs PaE and this PC doesn't have it.
So I spent another £10 to download 11.10.
We want to do 3 very simple things with the minimum data downloading:
Internet connection through the dongo -Done
Listen to music - From CD and from USB memory stick and hard disk
Watch a movie
First it doesn't recognize the CDs or mp3 on my hard drive or USB. I downloaded and installed ubuntu-restricted extras, but the installation failed.
I tried to install it again from the terminal writing
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
It failed also, output below

After this, I can listen to one song. I click on a song on my memory stick, banshee opens up, you can hear the song but banshee is completely blocked, you cannot do anything there, and when the song finish you cant close banshee it doesn't respond, let alone do a play-list.
Why does banshee get blocked? What do I need to do, without needing to download as I have to restart Ubuntu to kill the process?
AVI and DVD playback
If I try to open a AVI file from my memory stick, Movie player opens up but it gets completely blocked and I cannot close it. So I have to restart Ubuntu.
