Hi i need Your advise on packages for a PPC Tibook 500Mhz

I am running IceWM/Wmaker and looking for /lightweight preferably/
1. file manager (midnight commander is possible?)
2. lightweight mp3 etc.player (XMMS seems to be masked and news says not included later? kaffeine is advised?)
3. dvd/awi/DivX player (i'll probably watch moviefiles, from the optical and hd)
4. application to manage Canon digit cameras.

Thanx!

3. You can use VLC without including a GUI (console commands)
4.

Yes, I think you can use VLC. It is in testing. More errors may occur.
And: if you visit www.videolan.org ->gentoo, you can see the recommended package.use.

Try Audacious, it's a clone of XMMS, but looks good. :)

Another vote for VLC.

Actually vlc will also play your music files (mp3, ogg and many other as well as play cd through
cdda if needed). So by using vlc (I do) you save yourself another app.

If you really want a separate lightweight music player I recommand mpd + mpc (or any other client
some graphical like pympd). It plays quite a lot of format, is controllable on the command line
or through a web interface. Only drawback is it doesn't do cd playback.

For the camera I really use digikam, I don't really know of a light weight app for that.
Digikam + digikamimageplugins is a really awesome package to deal with photos, but
the competition may be on the same level for all I know.

For internet radio, it depends of the protocol used and the stream format. I used
vlc to listen on some internet stations on macOSX so it should also work on linux.
For the other stations that are not supported a good complement is the realplayer
for linux-ppc but you will have to get it and do the install manually, but it works as far
as I am concerned.
mpd also can listen to some internet radios.

Well easy
Code:
emerge digikam

And if you want the plugins (for not so basic image processing):
Code:
emerge digikamimageplugins

and the nice thing about portage is that it will take care of the dependencies all by itself like a
grown up.

The super light-weight audio player I use is: media-sound/quark .
It can play any audio supported by Xine, is without gui, and runs well inside of a GNU Screen session from the console.
I can even use this to play music while doing system recovery 8O .

Konqueror will do it. I don't if it is a part of kde-base or not.
I don't really know of other lightweight graphical apps for that.

Now, back again.
I need a graphical Firewall editor. I have seen Guarddog, but it requires kdelibs. I would use a lighter one if possible.

The packages I use till now are:

Browsers: Opera, Firefox (I have Seamonkey esp. for its html editor)
Mail: Sylpheed
Fileshare: aMule (a bit crashy, is there a better one?)
X: fontforge, xfonsel,xchat, xpdf, xcalc, xchm
Editor: nedit, bluefish, abiword
File: Rox, mc
Graph: Gimp, gqview (color chooser), Blender, Inkscape - they are the heaviest maybe.
Terms: xterm, wterm
Others: wireshark, powerprefs, conky, samba, cups, ntfstools
Music: vlc, audacious

More advises?

I have no kdelibs and so, and firestarter wanted to bed it first / like guarddog.
I have chosen fwbuilder / now learning it.
