SAA’s in-flight entertainment runs on Linux, apparently

Apparently, South African Airways runs some kind of Linux for their in-flight entertainment system.

In-flight entertainment FAIL

Of course, on the leg of the trip from New York to Senegal, the flight staff kept rebooting the system trying to get it to work, with very little luck. Most of the time we just stared at the Linux boot process hanging, trying to talk to the NFS server. Fortunately, they got it working for the Senegal to South Africa leg of the trip.
