comment Cannot play media on Acer Aspire One AO751h
The CPU is under some load, but neither the CPU nor the RAM are close to maxed-out (htop confirmed). When I say "unlistenable" it's very very laggy.. that's the best way to explain it. It sounds the same way it does when a computer is really really struggling to decode something (but that's definitely not the case since CPU isn't the chokepoint) (HDD isn't the chokepoint either because it doesn't play from /tmp any better) And yeah, VLC was my first choice. But when that didn't work I had to try other players (and MPlayer is known for being good in situations like this)

Before somebody asks, I have disabled Xv output. That didn't fix it (and wouldn't matter for the MP3s on the VT anyway)

comment How do you make USB bootable on chromebook
@user164960 Under most circumstances, a terminal will begin in $HOME. The chance that the shell would start out in a different directory is so low as to be negligible and may be disregarded.

@Prarobo nope, no DNS involved at all.
