Attempts to ping the client result in message “unknown host” error.
Ensure the host name is correct and includes a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the applicable domain where the thin client is located. You may also need to add the FQDN in /etc/hosts. Modify /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and enter the option send host-name [FQDN].
The local keyboard settings do not match the actual characters on my keyboard.
The characters used in the keyboard mappings are defined by the xserver provided by the Debian repository and can be modified either by changing the source files in /etc/X11/xkb or by running the xmodmap command from the users ~/.xsession script. This latter method is used by the hptc- keyboards package available in the HP repository to customize the international keyboard provided by HP.
Attempting to play video with the default install of the mplayer package from http://www.debian-multimedia.org causes this message to appear: Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.
Open the Preferences dialog, select the Video tab, and select a different driver. The xv or x11 drivers seem to provide the best performance.
The system intermittently hangs.
Check available flash space with the command df –h from an xterm or console. You may need to delete unnecessary files. One possible alternative is to install localepurge from the Debian repository or delete documentation files by running the /usr/share/hp/cleandocs script from an xterm console.
