oo arr
be dis idea good? Shocked

PirateBox is a self-contained mobile communication and file sharing device. Inspired by pirate radio and the free culture movement, PirateBox utilizes Free, Libre and Open Source software (FLOSS) to create mobile wireless file sharing networks where users can anonymously chat and share images, video, audio, documents, and other digital content.

The PirateBox can be built using a number of different configurations depending upon your needs and budget. The basic system consists of a lightweight web server connected to a wireless device. When users join the PirateBox wireless network and open a web browser, they are automatically redirected to the PirateBox welcome page. They can then begin uploading or downloading files.

Nar. Decentralized file sharing is better. So connecting to other computers around you and browsing there shared files I guess. Might Tribler be the sort of thing one could use?
adobe flash is rubbish!

Sub_title: A great idea.....

i uses PuppyLinux .... and i'am a novice dev Embarassed

I would like to install this script on PirateBox on PuppyLinux.
Repositories Matthias =

How do I do?
What do i need normaly?
- Debian based System Confused also on other distributions, you may have to change the init.d script
- Python = OK
- hostapn (if you don't need to be an APN, you can switch this setting off in piratebox.conf)
- dnsmasq (if you don't need to act like an dhcp and dns, you can switch this setting off in piratebox.conf)

thank you for guiding me
