    OBD Setup / Linux

    Are you running an OBD setup using Linux? Could you please report your setup, including:

    - Flavor of Linux (Redhat, Slackware...)
    - Connection method (COM/USB)
    - Hardware Device (Andy, BR, etc)
    - Software Interface, custom?


    I'm curious as to the best route to go. Thanks.

    I use a self improved version of scantool/freediag from freediag.sourceforge.net with a home compiled kernel 2.4.
    I already tested sucessefuly the same software in a standard DSL distribution.
    DSL is based on knoppix and knoppix is based on debbian...
    My hardware is a AlfaDiag KKL from Andy:

    I realise this thread is now thoroughly dated, but I thought I'd pimp myself anyways, just in case anyone is subscribed to this thread.

    I've written a tool called OBD GPS Logger that runs on Linux and OSX. It has its own sub-forum on these forums here: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/obdii-gps-logger/. I just finished doing a new release that adds a UI, so now it's starting to look like something someone other than me might actually want to use...

    The homepage is here: http://icculus.org/obdgpslogger/

    Have fun,
    Gary (-;

    I am interested in the program you are using, since I am running a Ford with ODB-I. I realize that Ford and GM ODB-I programs are not the same, but hopefully I could find a Ford version where you got your program from. Many years back I remember a gentleman who wrote one (don't remember which flavor) and it was available for download. That was many moons and a computer or two back.
    My vehicle is circa 1992.
