Linux MP3 software with character LCD support
I'm new to linux and after having bought an Epia 5000 I need to run Linux as DOS wont work well (the on board sound it terrible, and I can't get the PCI card to work).
I want to use Linux, but have a character LCD display (20x4). What software do you recommend I use to play MP3s?
Also I want to write my own front end, is this possible in php or perl (I'd need libaries, yes?). But this is not as important as to find the MP3 playing software.
Also, what distro do you recommend for a novice who wants fast boots?
