    Lightbulb Another linux player

    A new linux mp3/dvd/cd/vcd player DFBCar. There is no need for X. The player is written C and uses xine-lib and directfb, which is the only software required. Directfb is used for drawing to the graphics cards and xine-lib is used for playing media.

    This software is in the early stages and not as feature rich as others, but my current operating system is less than 25MB and I bet can get much smaller. As of right now pushing the on button to the computer to dfbcar done starting only takes 25 secs.

    This system was build with the hardware I have. I only have a 5.6" screen, so everything is very large and the software takes input from either keyboard or remote.

    Any developers are greatly appreciated.

    Go the link previously given in the post for screenshots and for downloading.

    Hey, use it, don't use it, its up to you

    I probably wasn't clear. The 25 seconds was meant for the boot of my system using dfbcar. From the time I push the on button on the computer, it takes 25 seconds and voila you can play dvd, mp3, etc. DFBCar itself takes about a sec to load. Most of the boot is bios.

    forgot to add

    I can upload my 25mb linux operating system with dfbcar if anyone is interested. This is a read-only system so you can cut the power to the computer whenever, so no need for a startup or shutdown controller.
    The system was built for epia m10000, so unless you have an epia board, no modification to the kernel is needed.

    What linux are you running

    What linux setup do you have to have the entire thing under 25mb? The 2.6.x kernel is twice that large.

    Someone should write a new BIOS for EPIA boards. A Barebones firmware that just starts the computer. Forget troubleshooting. Make HDD info and such things entered by hand so that it doesn't test for them. Knocking BIOS time down would help EVERYONE.

    Ok Done: FreeBIOS supports EPIA boards last time I checked. Supposed to be able to boot Linux unbelivable fast with this system.

    Ummm ... I'm sure you know that you don't need to select everything in the kernel setup. By adding only those parameters that are specific for your mobo, sizes of 25mb.

    I have 15mb linux image for my epia 6000CL that runs my firewall at home.
