It seems the problem is the USB drive itself - I cloned the installation to other USB drives, and even though the speed reported are similar, the performance of the 'default' USB is significantly slower

Since the PC runs on 1GB of RAM, I wonder if there are system folders I can leave on the USB, and some that I can squashfs and load to RAM.Any ideas?

PS. Just checked prices - this seems like a reasonable solution money-wise :)

hdparm reports speeds close the the speeds of my hard-drive, but performance of the system is far from the performance of the system when an original hard-disk is used. Thank you for your answer :)

H'm, I know this workaround. Sadly, I bought two micro usb 16 gb USB with the sole purpose of serving as hard disks. Since live usbs work way faster than this install, I believe there is a way to get things right on such a system. I don't strive insane copy speeds, just a decent Facebook machine for my girlfriend :-)

This will work most of the time, this is why I accept this answer. In this current case the app is working on its on in the new X window, so alt+f2 cannot bring command line :)

Alt+PrintScreen+K - got it. This works. Anyway, I wrote a script, which can be used to kill Xorg at tty8. With some effort, it can be easily modified to kill anything at any tty :) Here it is<br /> #! /bin/bash JOB=$(ps -A | grep -w 'tty8' | grep -w 'Xorg') JOBNUMBER=$(echo $JOB | awk 'BEGIN { } ; {print $1}') kill -9 $JOBNUMBER

No, nothing happens, I added it, checked the file, the was correctly changed, restarted, but still this key combination will not work. I think I can write a simple bash script to find xorg process running at tty8 and kill it. kill -9 some number will kill it
