    This release really starts to set OM apart. There are soo many firsts achieved in this release, everyone please take time to recognize Justin and the rest of the OM dev team for their hard work and dedication.

    Wow, this looks great coming from a slow, laggy attempt at using CF on an atom, and then being overwhelmed by the monumental commitment it would take to even attempt to switch to RR and get it customized to my liking. From the video, this looks like exactly what I need, and hopefully its open source nature will keep it from meeting the same fate as so many other frontends. Great work, gentlemen - I will give this a spin!

    OMG! Significant improvements over 0.7! Noticeable graphics speed even on my little old 1.6ghz Atom. Glad to see the clock. And even GMPC is "usable" as embedded NAV where before it was not.

    Although I still do not know why my line-in is not recaptured after resume from hibernate, nor do I know how to play whole music library (random or otherwise), there will definitely be a donation this week!

    Loving it!

    John

    To play your entite music library, open up the media panel and just press the play button on the right. That will load every song by every artist. If you have random selected, it will play them randomly.

    Not to rain on the parade...

    But I have some issues when running this on Linux (not ubuntu 10.10 as suggested).

    1. The installer allows for placing the openMobile folder anywhere the user has write permissions too, the desktop file still looks for the executable at /opt/openmobile/

    2. need to ask for su to write to /usr/share/applications (permissions on that folder for both meego and mandrake is r-x for user)

    3. The installation says completed, however, it hangs for a long time trying to reexecute the install script out of the /opt/openmobile directory

    4. On both meego and mandriva the program fails to actually start... I have the svn version on the mandriva box and it does run.

    Sourceforges backend has been down for the last 24hours but it will be in the known issues page when it comes back up. The installation requires that /opt/openMobile/ be the install directory (this is our first fully functional linux installer-future versions will be more versatile).

    For the rest of the issues though, yes the installer requires su, just like any installation or administrative action does on any linux platform. Once running as root and installing in the default directory you will find the rest of the installation succeeds and then the application will run correctly.

    Following you notes, OM does indeed install without issue (using only default plugins & skins). However, the app still fails to start. I have attached a log file of what OM puts out when I try and run it.
