What distro are you using in your Carputer? I'm in the process of building mine and figured this would be a good place to start. There is another thread about 'what distro do you use,' but a lot of people talk about their desktops there (mine is gentoo, btw0). I'm wondering what people do for the Carputer. And any special setups they have. I belive someone on these boards mounts their entire drive read only, so they can just pull the power and not worry about mucking anything up. Others use Software suspend. Here's a few questions / ideas:
- if using a RO drive, do you have a second partition that is writeable for transfering mp3's to? Do you mount your /var to a ramdrive? Another partition for software suspend?
- Anyone try Linux From Scratch ?
- Anyone want to post their .config files for their via board kernel compiles?
- Any other questions people have?
For my first go, I'll probably use gentoo (as that's what I'm accustomed to), my second go may be LFS.
