Resurrect Your Old PC for Music—with Linux

Writing about web page http://digitalmedia.oreilly.com/pub/a/oreilly/digitalmedia/2005/03/23/linuxmusic.html

I've not read the whole article yet, but this is basically exactly what I want to try out with my old PC I've got sitting idle at home.

If you've been wanting a home music server and have a spare PC, this could well be the way to go.

  1. Hmm, with all the spare hardware I'm collecting at the moment, I am going to have a second PC soon. I need to find a decent source of really old computers, though… possibly ebay. Next year, I reckon it'll be more fun to build my own router, rather than use a pre-packaged one. I reckon that'll have to happen before attempting a music server, although I've aspired to one for a number of years. I saw an article once, where they built a jukebox that would automatically rip any CD you put in it, classifying all the tracks using CDDB, and then it would stream the music over the network, or somesuch. Actually, the article you've linked to seems to stop with getting Knoppix installed… hmm. I was expecting more cunningness. :)

    Erm… yay for Linux! Come to the LUG!
