RIMPS is a web-based frontend, written in PHP, to make Apache an MP3 and Ogg server. It's complete with searching, individual song playing, and playlist creation. Think: a personal mp3.com of your own MP3s, plus playlists!

    How To Get RIMPS 3 Sep 13, 2002

    Q: We've been working on RIMPS 3 for awhile now and people are wondering "how can I get RIMPS 3 so I can play with the latest features?"

    A: With webcvs still broken, it's difficult to figure out. So here's the answer:

    • Follow the directions for checking-out RIMPS in the CVS section.
    • Then run: cvs update -rRIMPS_3-branch rimps
    • Have a lot of fun!

    New Screenies! Mar 3, 2001

    Q: What's the point of these screenshots when we can just use the demo??
    A: Sometimes the demo breaks. That's the hard life we live here at Source Forge. And to prove it, well I couldn't even login properly to take the screenshots! So, there are no screens of playlist management, but you should be able to get an idea of the rest. RIMPS kicks ass ;)

    RIMPS Machine Mar 19

    If you haven't heard of the i-opener you really need to crawl out from under that rock and get one! They make great RIMPS boxes (among other things). Check out how to get Linux on them at Linux Hacker and i-opener linux. Great for the bathroom, kitchen, living room, ... ;)

    Missing Files Jan 24

    It seems some time over the weekend Source Forge had filesystem corruption which lost our updates. Even though much of the website is broke, you should be able to get rimps-0.05.tar.gz from our ftp site. As for everything else, I'll have that straightened out soon.

    Table fix Dec. 1

    We were getting reports of songs being off by one. The problem was with the table script. It has now been corrected. You can dl the new table script, replace your current one, and start over, or you can dl the new package - rimps.0.03.tar.gz. If you already have RIMPS running, you can simply delete all in mp3data and drop mp3data_id. Then create a new mp3data_id sequence. This procedure should be described in the database doc.

    RIMPS is released! Nov. 22

  • Just getting started around here, but here's the source: RIMPS-0.01
  • You need mp3db. However, I couldn't get to the site, so I have a copy here: mp3db-0_3_2.tar.gz. We had to hack it a little to get it to compile on a slackware 3.4 box. If you have some trouble you might want to try this patch: mp3db.diff
