@EricWilson, export EDITOR='emacs -nw'. Personally I prefer to use emacsclient so that the file opens in my existing gui emacs window.

comment Where can I find an ISO of 12.04 for ARM?
ARM systems are not PCs; they can't just boot from a cd. You have to burn a custom built image into their flash rom.

Is this a TV set rather than a real computer monitor? They are notorious for lieing about their resolution.

comment Upgrading Ubuntu Server minimal install
What do you mean? Upgrading replaces the packages you currently have with their new versions. New packages are only installed if they are now required by the new versions of the existing packages being upgraded.

comment How do I override an MTU provided by DHCP?
Even with ping -M dont -s 1484? I forgot that without the -M dont the packet will just be fragmented to fit into a smaller mtu. tracepath will also discover the actual mtu.

Are you sure it actually works when you make it larger? Does ping -s 1484 somewhere.com actually work? If so then you should tell your ISP to fix their broken DHCP server. It is supposed to tell you what the maximum size is that they will accept, and so if you try to send anything larger, it will just be ignored.
