I've seen that Capt Fish has made reference to using the optimized mplayer from the angstrom distro.

How do i do this, i'm still relatively new to linux.

from what i can tell the pkgs are in ipkg format, but zUbuntu uses apt and dpkg since it is debian based.

how do i connect to the angstrom feed and install packages?


-thnx

duo

UPDATE: So it appears that xarchiver can read and extract the ipks, does this mean that i should just go to the angstrom repo, and dl mplayer and all of its dependencies and their dependencies then just extract everything? Will this work, or am i going to break something? and Is there and easier way?

I'm not sure which is more optimized, the Angstrom MPlayer or this one:

http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/feed/beta3/fe...-1_armv5tel.ipk

Feel free to try both.

Yes, the install method is "download and extract the ipk to /, install deps (from Ubuntu repos) as necessary."

Extracting (as root):

CODE
cd /
tar -xf /path/to/mplayer_whatever_armv5te.ipk
tar -xpvf data.tar.gz
rm data.tar.gz debian-binary control.tar.gz
