I wrote a perl script to play MP3s so that I could have music playing at run level 1 or 2 (before xwindows which is run level 5). The script works flawlessly and has search capabilities, volume control, all the good stuff.Originally Posted by rafaelsherman
Anyways, after bios loads, it takes 3 seconds to start playing music. My bios takes like 15 seconds to load, so in less than 20 seconds you have music playing.
The other nice thing about the script is you don't need a monitor to use it, all you need is a computer and a keyboard.
