    No idea. I'll tell you the sitcking point at the moment.

    I decided to dump XMMS and handle Audio/Video myself through the SDL libraries. Found a bunch of memory leaks in the library bindings and patched them all. Everything is perfect on my test machine, now nothing works on the actual car anymore.

    With all these moving targets, something seems to break (dependency wise) every time and I'm getting damn sick of it.

    The latest hassle is smpeg will not compile but it hasn't been modified in years, don't know if it's due to a GCC upgrade or not, but even using a much older one (3.4), it still *****s the bed.

    I think I've spent more on the latest round of troubleshooting all this install BS then I did writing everything to date.

    Plus the response on the perlSDL list hasn't exactly been lively. The newest target won't build at all, but can't get a straight answer on what the latest buildable version in subversion is. I want to contribute, but man, this is frustrating.

    Program

    What is this frontend for? XP, Linux? I know it might be a stupid question. I noticed no one has asked.

    Theoretically, all of em.

    Perl runs on almost every platform there is. (and I mean dozens)

    SDL in theory works on nix and windows, have had some difficulties getting it to work on Windows.

    The Perl SDL bindings should work on both Win + Linux but have had some problems in the past with Windows, the blead release is supposed to work on OSX now.

    When you rewrite the framework, are you still going to use perl? .net would certainly ease some of your pain if you're interested. Looks good so far, im interested in seeing a beta so keep us updated.

    Thanks for the offer, I'll keep things updated here as they occur.

    .NET is out as Linux is my platform of choice. Perl isn't really the problem here, it's the SDL glue library. I'm waiting on the newest version to be released (now works on OSX), and I'll take it from there.

    There are other interfaces that could be used with Perl (TK, Win32::GUI, QT). If I can't work out the SDL issues, I'll either try one of the others, or make my own bindings for WxSDL (Then I'd have built in widgets, best of both worlds).

    The only other possibility is C/QT as I've been reading some books on QT lately.
