MEPIS 11 Community Repo: The Guayadeque Thread
Update 21 Feb 2012: Now in the testing CR is a new version 0.3.5.
Check out the article here: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/02/guayadeq ... eased.html
Update 12 June 2011: We have a nice new version 0.3.1, backported from Debian Sid, in the main testing CR. I'm listening to a Shoutcast stream in it right now--does the "Record" button create an .ogg file with ID3 tags? Sure does.
Please let us know how this works for you if you give it a try. Thanks!
Guayadeque 0.2.9, with many improvements, is now in the main test repository. You will have to manually install the gstreamer "ugly" plugins package to be able to play mp3 files, but I am uploading an update to auto-install the plugins along with Guaydeque. This was built form the raw upstream source using Debian's procedure for the previous release.
Here's the release announcement: http://guayadeque.org/forums/index.php? ... 9-released
