  • [LinuxICE] Feature Suggestion Box

    I thought this would be a handy thread to allocate all the features that we'd like to have LinuxICE perform.

    I'll start with the obvious:

    Audio playback
    Video playback
    Touchscreen support
    Custom resolution support

    Maybe some supprt for an ODB-II interface hardware (bundle drivers for the popular serial and/or usb cables).

      I might be stating the obvious as well:

      Fast boot time (maybe using suspend?)
      Small amount of required disk space
      Easy installation via touchscreen (i.e. automatic required kernel module detection)
      Easy way to change settings via touchscreen (could maybe be achieved by frontend)

        What about:

        Nav Support
        phone integration
        FM radio (with RDS/RDBS) support
        Low cpu usage

          Thanks for the suggestions . I've posted a draft of the features list in the Linux ICE forum.

              The problem as I see it is defining what is a front end feature and what is an OS feature. As far as the OS goes, I guess it would be necessary to include the libraries etc required for navigation support and all that, but what happens if different front ends use different libraries. Could having unused libraries significantly increase the overall size of the OS and is that of significant concern? Could the end size of the OS be reduced by an installation program that only installed required drivers and libraries or would such an installation program be too difficult to program?

                hey, how about cellphone internet sharing?

                i am debating whether to boldly go with a linux distro
                or settle for windows knowing everything will work (at least 1/4 of the time)
                if my wm5 device could communicate with linuxICE, that would be a major plus
