Re: Howto: Utilise the svn MPlayer to Improve Karmic Koala's 'mplayer-nogui' Package
I still regret a little not working on these guides and I have been thinking of writing a new one in my upcoming 2 months holiday, courtesy of Virtualbox, that would focus on the svn mplayer and the most recent release of Ubuntu in a 'rolling release' fashion. This would be a lot easier on my time while still giving a forum for those interested in the cutting edge MPlayer. This would be somewhat against the Ubuntu policy of support for older versions of the distro but it would certainly work better for usage of my time in front of a computer, which recently has had many constraints.

You think that's air you're breathing now?
