    LinuxICE Beta3

    LinuxICE Beta3 is ready for download.

    grab the torrent here:

    http://nghost-project.com/LinuxICE-Beta3-4.torrent

    The update here is quite a few bug fixes and stability issues addressed. In addition, nGhost (now 2.0.1) and icepanel have been updated to the very latest.
    See: http://wiki.openice.org/index.php/Th...t#Get_LinuxICE for additional information

    faulty installation

    Hi Kev

    First let me say that you are a legend. I have been monitoring this carPC progress for years now. Partly due to funds, and partly sue to maturity. I have decided to download the beta 3 version of openice. I have tried to install it and seem to get as far as a busybox terminal screen.

    I am trying to install on a Dell Latitude D630. This is just a test system as i am waiting for my hardware to arrive.

    Do you have any pointers for me?

    I have now installed Ubuntu 8.04. I will download nGhost and see if i can get it all up and running.

    TIA

    I think I have the exact same problem on my laptop at work of the same model. I have no idea why. I wonder if by removing some laptop tools I inadvertently broke the ability to boot on a laptop....

    edit: my laptop at work is actually a Dell D830. but still, same issue.

    Tidder, the server that the torrent was sitting on moved (with me) to a new home. I've got the torrent uploaded to the forum in the mean time: http://forums.openice.org/download/file.php?id=266

    This also means that you won't be able to get LinuxICE updates until comcast get's my internet hooked back up.

    If it's the "can't access tty: job control turned off" problem, then I came across the same problem, it's a know *buntu problem. Everyone has another cause though. For me it was the fact that there is a compact flash card with windows XP on it. Just removing the card was enough to get the party started... minor detail: I planned on installing on that exact CF card...

    Didn't really like what I saw though
    Navit doesn't start, USB sticks aren't recognized directly and icetouch won't start so I can't calibrate my touchscreen. Oh and it takes a lot longer to start than Xp Judging from the websites and screenshots I had expected at least some working parts
    On the upside: it does look good, so I'm hoping for a working beta4
    CarPC: "Carma" (Car Audio & Route Management) (about 70% ready)
    P4 1.8GHz / 512MB / 4GB CF
    Asus TVFM + B/W camera
    15" touchscreen 1024x768
    BU303
    2x 100Ah
    reinstalling

    And all this in a Dutch 1972 CitroŽn HY van called "MurpHY".

    Your pain is felt. I've added a bug for the problems you are experiencing: http://bugs.openice.org/bug.php?op=show&bugid=20 .

    I'll get fixes for those as soon as I can.

    Thanks for the report.

    Hi Kev,

    I am working on getting my Sony UX UMPC up and running as a car PC, suitable for multiple cars. Without going into too much detail (theres more detail here, if you're interested; http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/linu...tu-car-pc.html) I also want it to be a fully functional PC when not docked in the car.

    I fired up the live CD of your distro and it looks really good. There are lots of nice touches that I would like to replicate in my setup (I am not looking to make a distro). I also notice that your distribution is Ubuntu derived and wondered if you had any package repositories I could point my sources.list at in order to add elements of your distro' to my setup?

    Also - do you have any details as to how to get Maemo apps running on x86 PC's. I have an N800, but would be very interested in CarMan and Canola. Any pointers would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Dan

    yes, there is a linuxice package repo:

    deb http://nghost-project.com/nghost/downloads main unstable testing
    i don't recommend testing, unless you want to help out with the testing effort

    as for maemo apps, I usually just grab the source and compile it myself. If it's written in python (like carman and canola are), then it should work out of the box.

    see ya!

    Thanks Kev, much appreciated and I'd be happy to help with the testing.

    I have now installed Carman - when I launch carman-gtk it presents the window from which I can create a new profile. If I select new, software simulator, then forward... it will go no further. The same thing happens with carman-sdl-launcher or carman-profile-manager

    Code:

    Is this an error you have come across at all?
