I have used today ... the new Whezzy Raspbian ... absolute headless!
Update and Upgrade maintained
MPD MPC installed ...
TightVNC to connect my WIN-Notebook
USBmount to mount my Stick or USB Harddisk automatically
After that i tried Sonata and GMPC as GUI
everything works like a charm now.
Except a Noise at the end of a Song ...maybe MPD or the RasPI.
For me as a non unix or linux user and 2 days Owner from a RasPI was it after reading from a few Forums a surprise to get all running.
Still looking for a Webinterface to control MPD with my Touch Ebookreader
