Best Podcatcher for Linpus Linux (Acer Aspire One)


I am totally new to Linux and new to the Acer Aspre one (Linpus Lenux, 512MB, 8gb). I plan on using this netbook primarily for surfing, email, listening/viewing podcasts OFFLINE.. AND learning about Linux.

I've been using the AA1 for a few days and am very pleased with it... except that I cannot figure out which podcatcher to install.

Is there anybody out there that is using Linpus that has successfully installed a podcatcher? Linpus has a RSS reader and that works fine but --as far as I have been able to figure out-- does not allow one to download podcasts.

Is there any podcatcher that is easy to install on Linpus (Fedora)?

On my Dell, I am currently using iTunes. I really don't want to install iTunes on AA1 since it's such a resources hog.

P.S. I posted this same/similar question at Acer Aspire One User Forum on 11/28 but have received only one reply stating that they too are having podcatching difficulties. (I know that one should not post the same question on different newsgroups.)

You might try Miro or PenguinTV.

I was unable to install Miro. After trying -unsuccessfully- to install various podcatchers, I was finally able to install one that seems to meet my needs: gpodder. It installed with no problem. Thanks to all that replied.
