Music Player is fully portable because it has no need for installation. Therefore, instead of copying it to
your main drive, you can just as well copy the program to a USB stick and start it directly from there
(you might need to adjust the executable file permission of the program).
Notes for Linux distributions other than Ubuntu
This program has been developed and tested extensively on Ubuntu 8.x and 10.x (32-bit and 64-bit) inside
a virtual machine and also directly on a hardware computer system. Obviously, we cannot promise that this program
will run flawlessly on ALL possible Linux distributions since there are many differences between them.
It is important to realize that some Linux distributions (by default) are not configured very well for
real-time multi-media playback. They might - for instance - not allow Music Player to increase the
priority of its output process while this is important for uninterrupted playback.
Notes for Linux 64-bit
Since Music Player is a 32 bit program - when running it on 64-bit Linux you need to have the standard 32-bit
libraries ia32-libs installed (usually these libraries are present, but if not than they can be easily
obtained through your package manager).
