Well, here are the XBOX 1 specs, I would at least do better or match them.

Since the K6-2 stops at 550Mhz, and XBMC with certain skins can bring the xbox to its knees, im going to say no, but you can try, xbmc-live is also running linux under it. You will not be able to use visuals either.

Not a chance that was the first CPU i bought going on 10 years ago it was slow then,
it's only good for one of two things one a cheap word processer/internet use.
the other is the bin. you can build a far better machine these day's for peanuts

don't waste your time or sanity for that matter
XBMC Frodo 12 - Windows 7 - Asrock Ion 330HT - Aeon Nox

K6 should of hung its boots up years ago I'm affraid..... you could use it for a DOS machine to run all the old DOS games on.....?

Don't knock old hardware. I ran a 233mhz Celeron as a NAS for years, had a passive heat sink, very quite.

Check out Music Player Daemon, could be just what you're looking for.

alternatively you can pick up second hand xboxes really cheap.
