The “Rundfunker”

February 19th, 2006

Mini-itx.com reviews a custom made computer whose purpose is to scan the local network for audio files and play them. The little computer boot from a modified version of Knoppix called Troubadix loaded on a compactflash card.

Troubadix is a specially customized linux (Knoppix-derivative) that differs from other mini-distributions by containing the complete Knoppix kernel 2.6, MySQL 4.1, Apache2, PHP5, OpenSSH and Sun’s JRE 1.4.2 – however no X and thus no window-manager. Since Troubadix is booted from a compact flash card, no moving parts are installed in the housing that could be damaged during transport.
