Realising this is a comunity effort so rather than having a winge that such and such app isnt available, I thought it might be an idea to see if we can get some people together to add to the zubuntu feeds.

I have no idea where to start but it sounds like some of the people in the forum do. So If anyone has some time to post up a howto then we might be able to get everything thats posible to package packaged and then we will all benefit.

I'm assuming we would need to either cross compile on a PC (gulp) or download source and compile on the Z (slow)

Comments / abuse / howto's welcome

PS one of the things that makes UBUNTU so usable is not so much that its any better than any other distro, its more that there is user friendly documentation everywhere you look.

Well, for MPlayer, you should use the optimized pdaX/Angstrom versions, but for others, the command should be:

apt-get source --build PACKAGENAME

Or so I gather.
