How do I do stuff in OE (without a terminal)? - Donny Bahama - 01-20-2014

Total OE noob, here. I'm trying to get tvheadend working but I'm not sure my tuner card is enabled (or even being seen by the system). Normally, I'd fire up a terminal and run lspci -- but I can't do that in OE? It's cool that it's a simple, purpose-built distro, but so far I'm a little frustrated.

Also (if it's OK to post 2 different questions in one topic), can I setup IceWeasel/Firefox (or even Midori) in OE? I'd like to be able to search for answers to my issues and read forum replies without moving to another computer.

Enable SSH in the settings addon then log-in to a local console. There is an Opera plugin from 'ultraman' (see his signature for the install link) but nothing on FireFox etc. which is stable although browsers in/on XBMC is a little experimental.
