"...MusicMatch Jukebox 6.0 and MusicMatch Jukebox Gold 6.0 for
Linux are both graphical music playing applications from
MusicMatch. Each is similar in function and design, with the
difference being that Jukebox Gold has the added feature of being
able to burn CDs and Jukebox does not. For this added feature,
MusicMatch has tacked a reasonable $19.95 (US) price tag onto the
Gold edition, while the base model is completely free of
"MusicMatch runs on Linux thanks to the auspices of WINE. While
this normally gives me the willies, I have to say that this was the
smoothest installation of a WINE-using app I have ever seen. The
program ran flawlessly in terms of functions, though there was
significant delays as the various windows and dialogs were jerkily
painted on the screen. Strictly in terms of performance, this was
the most disappointing part of using MusicMatch on my machine. The
good news is, that while the interface was slow and jerky, music
playing and recording were not hindered at all."
"Installing MusicMatch Jukebox (mmjb) went off without a hitch,
and after the first-time start, it successfully found all of the
MP3s on my machine, storing them in its own music library. A word
of caution: be sure you have a symbolic link set from your CDROM to
/dev/cdrom. mmjb does not look for any devices on its own, so it's
a symlink to /dev/cdrom or nothing. It didn't, for instance, locate
my SCSI-emulating CDRW at /dev/scd0 on its own."
