    i feel like a guy going into a les bar to ask about the proper way to please a woman...

    wait that came out wrong...awww crap...

    Yeaahhh. So, i decided i wanted to finally see what all the hype is about...and do something with it.

    I'm starting with DSL and then working my way up, ya know? I'm going to have a small video based GUI project with limited keystroke input and hopefully minor touches of voice control. Anyone with guidance on that, any and all help is welcomed. I will detail my project more and more a time goes on, but i'm starting with carputers and ending with Advanced Warfighter. Yeah, i'm interesting and super cool like that.

    To all you M$ haters out there...i still like the Xbox360 and i like my pocket pc and XP so leave me alone on that!!

    okay, i've downloaded DSL and i will put it on my SBC. My next step is asking what front ends are there for linux. Also, how hard is it to code for linux?

      I AM ROOT!!!!


      and I like penguins.

      As for the coding, it really isn't that much harder than it is for the PC. A coding language is a coding language. The intial hurdle is the hardest to overcome, and once you "get-it", everything else is waaaaay easier.

        This is the Linux front-end I've been helping with: nGhost. It's still an alpha but beta is comming up real soon with some features that I've never seen in any other front-end. Once you get all the dependancies installed, it should run pretty good on DSL.

        coding is as easy as the language your writing in. Here is how you compile a C program:

        #gcc -o myprogram myprogram.c

          okay, i tried extracting the iso of DSL bot disk onto a CF card, i keep getting disk error. I'm going to try to dl 3.1 in the zip file and see where that gets me.

          thanks kev. so you're saying any program written for windows will compile to linux with that line of ode or what?

            Whether the code will compile in Linux depends on the code. There are many pieces of windows code that are windows specific and use closed source APIs and such. If it is a pretty generic piece of code it will easily compile for Linux and Windows.
