Milky Tracker on Eee PC
« on: May 21, 2009, 14:56:54 »

Hello,

I have been using Milky Tracker on Mac for a little while but I am looking at getting an Eee PC for portable music fun. However, I am new to Linux and can't figure out which version of Milky I'd need to download to work on an Eee's Xandros OS.

I'm guessing it'll be a Debian one but I wasn't sure what architecture an Eee PC has. If anybody could tell me which version I need to download, it'd be much appreciated!

Thanks for your time!

Now that's what I call great advice :P

@Rinko:
Is building from source an option? I'm sure you have to get the gcc toolchain first.

Just to rule out the possibility: MilkyTracker doesn't appear in whatever package manager Xandros uses, does it?

1. download .deb package

2. extract files (with xarchiver or midnightcommander)

3. as root copy milkytracker binary to /usr/bin
