There are a few availableOriginally posted by eugenen
1. What mp3 players are out there currently? Since I have not kept up with the linux side I don't know.
There is a winamp clone called XMMS that does the same1a. Are any of the current mp3 players able to be controlled from a keyboard like winamp with the lcd plugin.
I run a linux From scratch distro with self-written software2. What dist are you running? I don't really care for redhat, it seems too bloated anymore.
As I said above, I use self-written software. This does my GPS and Ogg (no, I don't use MP3) playing tasks.3. GPS? Any linux packages. I currently have the crappy Delorme, but when I get to the point of having gps on my player I want to get something better.
Current features are GPS tracks storage and rendering (moving map of where you've been so far), compass, satellite positions and basic info.
In the music playing front, it currently plays the files you have in a random manner (I am more interested in the GPS features)
That's a given, and only depends on your kernel (2.4.20 can do that)4. Ability to mount USB storage. I have a 20G laptop drive that I can swap between my desktop and laptop that holds mp3's and vmware's. Can I plug it in to the linux box and auto mount and read the mp3's from there easily?
