    I tried to use Damn Small Linux to see if crossover/iG3 would work and the install is very straight forward. Just make sure that your bottle is set to emulate XP.

    Once ig3 is started my Epia 800 reports 38 megs of memory used with 4% CPU. When actively getting gps signal (I start out tethered and stationary and then move the gps around as far as the cable allows) it jumps to 35%. This will work for a few minutes and then crashes with the "too many open files error". The killer seems to be the com port code that others have reported on other threads (yes, I do )

    Darn it. I was very happy with the cpu/memory usage on DSL. I can't wait until Geese gets his TinyGentoo howto together.

    Well I installed the latest crossover office demo and made the symlink ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 com1 (which I found out the com1 has to be lower case). And the results are in the image below.

    iGuidance 3 runs in linux under crossover-standard-demo-5.0.3. I haven't done any detailed testing but from the few minutes I've played with it it seems to work.

    I'm running the iGuidance UMPC.

    It appeared to crash after a while while I was clicking on things.
    Performance seems to be great. You would think it was a native app.
    I guess the trick now is to find out how to prevent it from crashing.

    Edit: I wonder if crossover office demo has a nag screen. It is possible that poping up (though I haven't actualy seen one pop up) could be a problem.

    Is it stable for you other guys?

    I'll be able to see in about two weeks. I'm going to try IG3 in wine, cedega, cvscedega, and crossover office and hope one of them "just works".

    My TinyGentoo platform is coming along nicely. I'm going to try to work this into that build image very soon now.

    Great news. I can't wait to see it. Tiny Genoo looks like the ticket without having to go the full embedded route.

    Depending on how your kernel is configured this may work.

    I came accross something that might help people "fix" the problem with iG3 crashing on them.

    In /etc/profile add the line ulimit -n 655350 at the end.

    This will increase the number of open files allowed (that is if the kernel allows it). At the rate of consumption of about 5 files per second you should be good for about 36 hours of recording data before it crashes

    Edit: Well, it ran for 8 hours before crashing. It crashed with another error "Xlib: resource ID allocation space exhausted!"

    I'm no expert and I'm sure this isn't exactly the best thing to do, and I'm not sure how it is going to affect the system long term, but it will at least keep ig3 running for a while.

    Yes normal wine, but i think i had to put some DLLs in the wine directory.

    I can post later which DLLs i have in my wine-directory

    In case anyone else was having problems with iGuidance 3 working , I finaly got it working.

    I used crossover office 6 beta(this is the latest available at this time). This fixed the problem with running out of filehandles. I then had a problem where it crashed with an xlib error. This was fixed when I put Load "extmod" in my xorg.conf file.

    I don't know if anyone cares. I just thought I would share so anyone that was having the same problem would know the solution.

    I will probably have to buy crossover office in the next few weeks when the beta times out but it is a small price to pay.

    A side note is that graphics flicker twice whenever you pull up a menu. Also, some menus aren't perfectly displayed, but they seem to function correctly.

    I'm starting to think just another nanoITX or something running just iG3 and a video switch will be easier all of which I already have, except iG3 itself.
    Silverwolf 2 is dead.
    Silverwolf 3...?

    I care, and thank you.

    I'm slightly stuck with my TinyGentoo environment in getting a minimal xorg working. My kernel + initrd with a full busybox, screen, dropbear (ssh server) is 3.7MB compressed. If I emerge xorg into the initrd, it becomes 142MB or so...

    This is good info to have when I do get to the point where I'm installing crossover and IG3 onto my working Xorg based compact flash install of gentoo.
