As the title suggests, I have recently installed a couple of fat hard drives on an old Pentium II machine running Mandrake. I have been putting all of my sound files on that machine, and have Samba running, allowing my other machines to access the files.
After considering a few other options, I am thinking of using the Linux machine to play the sound files into a low power FM transmitter that can be received throughout the house on portable radios.
I am looking for advice and suggestions for this configuration.
Here are a few specific questions:
[ul][li]What is a good cheap sound card that will be happily accepted by Linux with a minimum of fuss? (the one on the mobo is giving me some problems).Any recommendations for either a text-based or a web-based jukebox app?Has anyone gone the lo-power FM route? Recommendations?General thoughts or suggestions?[/ul][/li]I would like this to be accessible to my wife as well, so it has to be fairly easy to use (otherwise I would happily do it all with shell scripts and the like).
