I was searching a small OS for an old laptop (hp pavilion zt1141s ->celeron 1.2GHz, RAM 234M) to recycle it as jukebox.
Release 1.2.4 is great : Small, powerfull, quick to start and its installation allows to create/select the part.
Very few things are missing :
– a written playlist to remind files allready queued
– a form to custom easily the screen
– an area to display mp3 icones
Following releases are surely better, but I can’t use it :
– r 2.0 don’t allow installation on the hard disk and the mouse lags too much -> NOK for my use.
– r 2.0.1 the installation don’t work on my laptop.
– devel-20120627-r14561 installation is ok, but erases all parts and the soft lags. 5s to move the cursor.
To be fair, there is surely a component badly recognized to explain these lags. Anyway, don’t forget the best opportunity to try GeeXboX is having an OLD laptop and to test it on a small part.
