I followed the instruction to create the sdcard for Slackware, but Pandora couldn't boot ext4. My Pandora has Zaxxon 1.76 firmware.

What is the brand/model of your SD card ?
Can Zaxxon mount and read the card ?

In my experience, ultra doesn't handle well EXT*.
Only extreme does.

Maybe try to format as EXT2 and copy again the rootfs ?
Can you try with another card ? 8G should be ok.

Try to enable pulse audio at X session login :
Parameters -> Xfce parameters -> startup -> automatic application startup
Then reboot or log out/in.

May work as they provide Raspberry Pi support, but it depends of the way they compile their binary.

Looks like something changed on the server, the wiki is ok.
I'll check with ED.

Switched on the Pandora for the first time after a long pause yesterday and installed the 14.2-3 rootfs.

I have hit two hitches, up to now: One, I haven't been able to get NetworkManager to configure an IPv6 address on our wifi, regardless of autoconfiguration settings (all the interfaces have link-local v6 addresses though). Two, in Firefox, I'm not able to load some web pages - notably Google and DuckDuckGo. FF just stays on the page that's open in the current tab. Is either of those a known problem?

I don't really use wifi, so i never went into that problem.
Maybe check with lsmod if the ipv6 module is loaded.
Also check /var/log/syslog and /var/log/messages .

About FF, last time I tried it worked with google.
I'll check that.
