My old laptop,
Dell Latitude 600MHz, 256MB Ram, 20GB HDD, 800×600 display.
Freevo box to be, get wifi and tv-out running and enjoy!
Stuff an ubuntu box should have:
apt-get install joe openssh-server synergy
nfs-common (for showmount)
w32codecs, for more formats
Used ubuntu packages for Freevo, then chown -R $user ~/.freevo
Then 'freevo setup'
The Wifi on this machine is a sweex wifi card, quite hard to get running.
Using atitvout I got tvout running, yay!
It's running Kubuntu now and works quite nicely. I use it as a general Linux box to try stuff out.
I'll Try Mythtv on this box when I get around to it.
I've got synergy running on it, works like a charm! Installed it on my XP laptop and on this machine, they usually are next to each other on my desk so now I don't have to lean over to type on this machine, just move my mouse over, very nice!
