Compiling an MP3-playing Helix Client on Panther


Get an account at the Helix Community site, and agree to the licences. Setup is then roughly as described in the Helix Client Quick Start Guide, but with:

SYSTEM_ID: macos-gcc3-xcode
branch: helix
target: splay_mp3
profile: helix-client-local-mp3
command line: ./ ~/test.mp3

Basically you set up an SSH tunnel, fetch the build system from CVS, then use the menu to set which client you want to build. This simple splay_mp3 client just plays MP3s.
