  • Linux Build or Xbox Port???

    Is there a Linux port or Xbox port of this software?

    I use a Xbox has a PC for my car, I have Linux running on it.

    Windows XP cannot be installed on Xbox, so im looking for a Linux version

    or if the Author can make an Xbox Port of this Software. The Xbox SDK is

    available all over the net.. I also feel that Using the Xbox guts is a way

    cheaper solutuion that building a PC. Where can u get 700mhz

    processor/motherboard, dvd rom, 64meg ram, built in Nvidia graphics card and

    soundcard,powersupply 10 gig HD and 4 USB ports for $119 .

    heres some pics of what i have installed now.

    Maybe not Frodoplayer, but isn't NoPistons front end written in Linux.

    Also Navigator 4 runs on Linux so that means that GPS software for Europe is available too.

    The xbox looks like a promising device for Cra Nav now.

        They have a port of Windows.CE for the Xbox. That might be the only way, but even then Frodoplayer would probably have issues with Windows.CE

          Cool idea none the less, never thought of cannibalizing an xbox like that

            There are windows emulators for xbox... I've heard they are painfully slow. I don't know how stable a win98 emulator running ontop of linux would be. It might work for running Frodo. I should have linux installed on my xbox in about a week or so.
