the BBC has moved
I'm surprized the old realplayer doesn't play the BBC url I
I switched to using the G2 player a while ago -and that guy
does insist on having X around.
All I do is run X in a separate virtual console --
I then have a small rap shell script appended below that
launches realplay --the G2 player.
Here is what you do:
1) On your Linux box, hit alt-F6
--this gets you to virtual console 6
2) Login at that console and type xinit
at the prompt
--this starts a minimal X session --leave this guy running
3) Now switch back t the virtual console where you are
running emacspeak --assuming this is virtual console 1 you
Now forget all about X --here is the simple rap script I use
echo "Playing $1"
$RAP $1 > /dev/null 2>&1
