If I were stranded on a desert island with only one program, it'd be vim :)[/glsa]

re. media players, I'm hoping the old DOS Cubic Player port gets finished one day - It was the most badass text-mode player ever created; Had all your pause, skip, playlist, directory browsing, even visualisations! ('tho the graphical ones will probably need SVGAlib...)

It also had the cleanest MOD/IT/XM/S3M support, with hardware and software mixing support, although I suspect not many people here listen too thse... :(

Portage-eix-layman and paludis are pretty darn sweet! :) One thing I'd find useful, but haven't been able to track down would be a ncurses interface to network manager (nm-applet.) Doesn't seem like it should be too terribly difficult to implement, but :google:LUG's:irc:misc forums: == nothing very useful. Anyone know of anything like that, even if in alpha stages? While looking, though, I did find a somewhat interesting site: CLI-apps.org During my brief visit there, I didn't see anything interesting that wasn't already in portage, but could be a good place for people to post new projects. Thank you gentoo-devs and gentoo community. Youse rock!

+1 for irssi and screen.

Also, if I may make a shameless plug for my own program: supercat is very useful for colorizing all types of text. Its in portage and it really isn't that difficult to use. Its strongpoint is definitely how easy it is to write config files for different types of text. give it a try!

Does anyone reckon sup is/will be as good as mutt? I'm getting pretty sick of Thunderbird's slowness and RAM usage ;o

For what it's worth, you're not alone!
I have >600MB of modules on my harddisk, some of which I wrote :?

I do remember cubic player: I wonder if it works under wine :)
although that would require X which defeats the point of the thread.

My biscuits go to:
- mplayer and links -g on framebuffer
- vim, irssi, and cplay for music
but my own machine always has X, so my opinion shouldn't really count.

edit: cp works fine in both dosbox, and qemu with freedos!

it's really useful

I love to work in console applications, and I just found TuDu to manage a list of ToDo tasks. I do not think many people know about it. You can find latest version in the betagarden overlay

Cheers!

Is there anything missing?


I strongly agree with zsh and vim 8)


Also, weechat for irc.
