Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Non continental U.S residents please note: XM Satellite Radio is
only available in the continental U.S.
XM Satellite Radio <http://www.xmradio.com>; has
made available XMPCR <http://www.xmradio.com/xmpcr/>;,
a satellite radio for your PC.
I have made available for users of this device gxmpcr
software for controlling the same.
gxmpcr is a client/server system, with CORBA interface available
courtesy of libbonobo and bonobo-activation.
It is GPL software.
The most current version is gxmpcr-0.4.88 <http://home.comcast.net/%7Ecodeskull/software/gxmpcr-0.4.88.tar.gz>;.
The version number reflects my assessment of the state of the
server (which probably constitutes more than one half, but who's
counting). The client is currently only a command line program for
testing components in the server.
There currently is no gui. Requires some tinkering to get up and
running. Be sure to initialize your radio in mswinblows ( sorry )
before you try this.
If you have an xmpcr and you'd to see this realized and you'd
like to contribute, please let me know <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>.
A community <http://www.xmfan.com/viewforum.php?f=31>;
has formed for hacking software for this device.
The same community is hacking the hardware as well. They have
managed to produce a optical digital output module <http://shop.store.yahoo.com/xmfanstore/xmtodioubo.html>;
that you can attach if you have soldering skills.
Also there is an already modded version <http://shop.store.yahoo.com/xmfanstore/xmwitoopdiou.html>;.
If you don't have an xmpcr, you have to get one! It sounds great
with the optical output. Pipe it into your audigy2 for full digital
processing, tone control - eq, etc. If you get one today and get
the module and you can solder, the total price would be about
$90.00 plus shipping. But for about $120 plus shipping you can get
the modded version. (No, I don't have an associated commercial
