I asked a question asking how to get equivalent behaviour in Raspbian and Raspbmc. I received what appears to be an interesting answer from Sam Nazarko, the developer of Raspbmc (although I couldn't actually verify his suggestions).
However, since then, I've discovered that the differences I experienced were not due to distributions, but Raspberry Pi hardware revisions. What should I do about the question? I don't want to delete it, because I think there is potentially interesting information in the answer. Should I just close it?
