    Why is it you struggle for ages to try and get something to work even after searching the posts. Then once you have made a post yourself you find the answer.

      Why is it you struggle for ages to try and get something to work even
      after searching the posts.

      Solution to this can be found in this post:

      Changing the sleep time in the linuxrc file solved the problem.

      Cheers
