    Talking I'm looking for a good Media server option for Linux+wii

    Hey guys,

    I'm hopeful that there are some linux folks out there.

    I have a wii with sm 4.0U and HBC, DVDX, media player etc...

    I want to be able to play music and browse my music library, which happens to be sitting on a linux server in my office. It's all shared SMB and I can do NFS if need be, but I what is a GOOD program to use as the player on the wii side? Do i need to load anything on the linux side?

    thanks

    Please elaborate

    How would you set this up? Could you please type up a tutorial. I'm using openSUSE 11.2 what program would I need to have on my linux box? and after installing the software on the Wii how would I stream it from the PC to the Wii. I'm not a noob at this, I have done this on my PS3. I am familiar on how to install programs, etc. Just inquiring about after the programs are installed on the wii and on the pc what needs to be done after that. I hope I explained myself clearly. Thanks!!
