2. Non-iPod Hardware > 31. Build a Cheap Linux Music Server

Build a Cheap Linux Music Server

Build a Linux-based music server to store all your digital songs in a stable and affordable package.

“Build a Cheap MacMP3/AACServer” [Hack #30] covered how to create an awesome Mac-based digital music server. But what if you have a spare PC or a Mac that is too old to run OS X? For the old Mac, check out “Run iTunes on an Old Mac” [Hack #29] . Otherwise, your best option is to look at creating a Linux music server for your iTunes music collection.

That’s right, with an old machine you have lying around, and the best open source operating system out there, you too can easily build a jammin’ music server. To make your jukebox complete, you can route your music to your stereo with AirPort Express and AirTunes.
