Good morning. I haven't tried Linspire myself, but I see on the
site that they have their MIDI applications. I thought for sure that
you'd be able to find XMMS in the CNR section, and that's a good
all-around player for most audio formats... but no XMMS. Their WinAmp
clone is FreeAmp and is available at .

Regarding installing programs without CNR, go to the page of the
application that you are looking to install... like and get the source and follow the
installation instructions. It's usually a {./configure, make, make
install} thing and you'll need the developer tools (compiler and
what-not) if they aren't already installed (let's hope they are, eh?

In God we trust. All others must submit an X.509 certificate.
