RCA LYRA and Linux

I needed an MP3 player for running...god knows it makes it easier (I really hate running) Anyway. There are several ipods in my house...none of them mine...they belong to the wife and kids and I didn't want to use those because I only wanted enough music to last 3 miles or so and it had to be durable also I didn't want to be too hurt if it got beat up.

I bought a LYRA RD2212 complete with FM radio and it has a few cardio features like a pulse taker etc.

As you can tell if you read my blog I want everything to work within Linux. I plugged it into my usb port and it immediatly showed up as a usb thumbdrive. loaded up 256k worth of 80s tunes and it was ready to go.

Not bad for $70
