  • 32 MB RAM.
  • Cable, DSL, or some kind of broadband Internet access.
  • Some free space, for mp3’s you wish to broadcast, etc…
  • Any fairly modern Linux distribution, with a v2.2 or newer
  • XMMS 1.2.x or later. http://www.xmms.org/

should have all the packages you need to get things rolling. If
you’re compiling from source, you should compile and install
software as directed by the documentation. Also, install
dependencies as needed.”
