    Hehe, why do you think I have gotten involved in LinuxICE2 kev?

    I'm not pinned down to any one way, but you hit the nail on the head - the carputer can and should be able to be very useful without any graphical interface. I want a "core" computer that is low enough power use when idle to never need to be turned off, and just stays on all the time. That core is LinuxICE

    Then one or more other pieces can boot up with the car, (maybe even using tftp to get it's image from the core) and provide other services like user input, displays etc. Or say use your iphone

    :grin

    Awesome, guys! I don't know where all of this is heading but an ice2 headless on the plug with a web interface would be really cool!

    I'm up for putting forth some help on the web interface. Get me a back end to work with and I can produce the PHP/AJAX/Javascript/XHTML to make it happen.

    I like how this thread has evolved way past the n00b level.

    Let me know what you need on the backend. We have service for gps (gpsd), fusionbrain (fbd), obd-ii (obdgpslogger now supports DBus), SMS (smsd)...

    Also, if you need a place to commit your code, I can make a place in the LinuxICE svn repo for it.

    I just created a thread for the web front end here:
    Linux Web Front End Development Thread

    I came up with some ideas and plans that you should all critique.

    Now we can direct this thread back at the sheeva.

    By the way, ftp is dead, let it be. Dead, f**ked, broken, insecure, busted old pos. Ditto telnet [I didn't see if you're ssh'ing into the wallwart or telnet'ing into it].

    scp is your friend. There's a mind-boggling awesome gui for it for windows, and for linux there's a thousand already-existing pointy-clikky file managers and command-line versions. If ssh is working, then you already have scp working. One of my favorite other benefits of ssh and scp is that you can set up public key authentication, so you don't have to type in your password, but it's secure.

    If you're still using telnet or ftp it is absolutely, unequivocally, worth taking ten minutes to learn to use scp instead of ftp and ssh instead of telnet.

    Thanks, that was a cool tip. I've been ssh'ing into the plug and using ftp with difficulty. This is way easier.

    Also, check my progress on the "How to build this for ARM" thread.
