    Wow

    So ive installed linux freespire on my carputer and man, it seems like a lot of work to get stuff working, is their an easy way to install my touchscreen software? I DL the drives for linux to a flash drive and i am going to try installing it that way since it wont load from the disk i have. Is there an easy walkthru guide on how to tune it up to how i like it and to get everything running?

    I wrote a touchscreen howto a long time ago. You can find it here: http://nextabyte.com/wiki/index.php?...chscreen_setup

    in freespire, if you want to go a bit easier, you can add the LinuxICE repository and install icetouch, and the evtouch driver:

    apt-get install icetouch ice-evtouch
    run
    Code:
    sudo icetouch
    do the calibration, restart X and you should be good to go.

    Note that icetouch is beta and it may not work at all. Lemme know if it doesn't and I can help fix those bugs so it does.

    cheers

    should have gone with XP. Vista will give you even more troubles in the car. The audio mixer being the biggest problem right now coupled with the Aero evils.

    Glad you liked it, you are the minority. Anyways, the problem is that software that controls the audio is all messed up because of the way vista handles audio. So since a CarPC is mainly audio, it is a pretty big inconvenience to say the least.

    The movie title most appropriate to this is "There will be blood". Set your expectations as looooooooow as you can if you'd like to be satisfied with Vista in your car.
