Also, the .m3u files contain the URL/HTTP address of the radio station, so why should a "path" even matter?

My command was: mplayer -playlist rustradio.m3u

It just names the file, not the full path to its location on your hard drive. So you need to run the command where the file is located. All Linux commands work that way.

Run: mplayer -ao alsa -playlist rustradio.m3u

Okay. I understand the terminal/path procedure. But, even when using peasymp3carousel to specify the folder where the mp3 and m3u files are located, peasymp3 will only play the mp3s and not the m3u. Notice that the /mnt/sda2/mp3 folder is listed in peasymp3carousel, peasymp3 playlist, and the symbolic links are in /tmp/peasymp3/peasycarousel. So there shouldn't be an issue with the "path". The locations of the files are there. It appears to be a hand-off/recognition issue with peasy. I don't know, for me, this is harder than it should be.

Here is what I would suggest.

Get a standard Puppy that already has mplayer, like a Slacko.

Install PeasyMP3.

Don't worry about the carousel. Run your .m3u file with the right-click procedure.

Tested PeasyMP3 in Thin Slacko and it works fine. Streams all my internet radio stations. Who knows? The one thing I've discovered with Linux is this, it's always something! Don't know if I'll ever figure out why but I've already spent more time than I care, But, hey, that's how you learn.

Thanks again, rcrsn51!

I located Quirky 1.4 and it works fine there too.

I suspect that something has gone wrong in your remaster.

You know, that could very well be. Think I'll try the original iso and see what happens. Will let you know.

Tried PeasyMP3 in the original Quirky 1.4.2 Baby iso and it has the same issue with not playing internet radio streams. Oh well, it still makes a good lightweight mp3 player. Very low on resources, too. CPU usage for lame and aplay < 2% and memory usage 0%. Think I'll keep it.

Thanks

I hunted for the quirky 1.4.2 baby iso but it has disappeared. So I guess this will remain a mystery.
