from the LinuxWorld Convention in San Francisco..
My thanks goes out to all you contributors..
Did anyone notice we are #6 this month at Distrowatch ? \o/ <-- yea!
Posted by adssse on Aug. 06 2005,04:27Very nice. Have fun at LinuxWorld!
Posted by ke4nt1 on Aug. 06 2005,05:34Threw in two more..
These are ROUGH BUILDS..
Test with caution. Use a LiveCD.
I'm throwing these out there due to requests for help
in building them.. They need work..
Hope it helps..
Posted by dare2dreamer on Aug. 06 2005,10:14I've sent a few extensions to extensions (at) damnsmalllinux.org and haven't heard anything on them. Did they not make the cut for some reason?

wmapm will be out shortly..
mpc is kinda lonely without a server..
Are you going to be submitting a server to use with it as well ?
Any others I've missed ?
Thanks for the inquiry..

JPilot - just what I wanted. thanks for all the effort ke4nt.
Posted by dare2dreamer on Aug. 09 2005,18:23As MPD typically requires a large hard drive to use (for the music collection), I figured focusing on the client side for DSL made more sense. However, I suppose I can try to knock up a server extension if it helps get it into the repo.
Also, I have gotten wmmpc working, which might make more sense for some users who are obsessed with dockapps. I was thinking of putting together a combination extension of both of the clients.
Anyone know a good "idiot simple" way of detecting if the MPD_HOST and MPD_PORT variables are set, and if not prompting the user for them? I thought a little lua app would make sense for DSL, but my skills in that arena are bluntly non-existant.

Well you could do it in a shell script (ok its not a idea solution but you said you wanted something simple).
