I had similar plans but after installing F9 on it, I was a little
disappointed for some hours... mainly due to the fact that it did not
enable my swap space on install... no idea why but I fixed that manually
and the machine was somewhat usable after that!
I wanted to use it as a frontend to a media application (MythTV) but I
doubt it's anywhere near capable with it's very limited RAM :(
I'd happily upgrade the RAM but alas that is not possible.
Anyway, pulse didn't run for me either and when I realised the other
limitations I didn't look too far into it.
Sorry I can't offer more insight, but perhaps someone else can.
I suspect the key problem as being: (_snd_pcm_hw_open) Invalid value for
card, but I don't really know.
