  Hi there,
i just updated the second Beta version of NMM-Oppix, a Live-CD based on 
Knoppix Version 3.7 to the latest NMM version 0.9.0. NMM is fully 
configured, so that all applications like our Multimedia-Box can be 
started without additional configuration steps.

Currently, NMM-Oppix provides the following features:

    * Includes latest NMM version 0.9.0.
    * Includes the complete documentation
      <http://graphics.cs.uni-sb.de/NMM/Docs/index.html> about NMM.
    * Full desktop integration. All important NMM applications, like the
      <http://graphics.cs.uni-sb.de/NMM/Status/MMBox/index.html> can
      easily be started via icons.
    * Includes several media files to test and demonstrate a
      sophisticated multimedia environment without disturbing the used PC.
    * Demonstrate the network capabilities of NMM, like network
      transparent audio/video playback (requires a DHCP and a DNS server!)
    * Complete installed and configured Multimedia-Box
      <http://graphics.cs.uni-sb.de/NMM/Status/MMBox/index.html>. No
      additional configuration steps are required to start it.
      Currently, the following features of the Multimedia-Box can be used:
          o Configuration dialog
          o Customizable on-screen display (skinning)
          o MP3 Playback: play back of MP3 files using the MP3 state.
          o Play-list: creation of play lists with all supported media
          o Multi-tasking: watch a video while transcoding mp3's.
          o CD Playback with CDDB support if a second CD rom drive is
          o CD-Grabber and transcoding to MP3/OggVorbis
          o DVD Playback if a second DVD rom drive is available
            (Encrypted DVD's can not be played back!).
          o Simulated TV (using a pre-recorded TV stream) plus
            time-shifting. *Please note, that KNOPPIX and NMM-Oppix
            currently don't support dvb cards or tv cards with
            integrated MPEG2 encoder!*
          o EPG: Receive epg information via XMLTV (*Experimental!*).
          o Transcoding of arbitrary media files. Transcoded files are
            stored under "/home/knoppix/Media/Transcoding".
    * /clic/, an application for setting up distributed multimedia flow
      graphs from a high-level specification or a URL.
