    LinuxICE2 "Anino" Alpha1

    *Preview*

    LinuxICE, the OS for your car, is released as the first alpha build for the 2.0 series codenamed "Anino". The 2.0 brings new packages including fbd, wifiproximity, smsd, and obdgpslogger along with updates of some of the other packages: nGhost 2.5, and Navit 0.1.1+svn.

    LinuxICE 2.0 alpha1 should also be the fastest version of LinuxICE to date. Below is a demo of the boot speed in virtualbox. Results on actual hardware should be even faster, and I hope to hear how fast it is for you on your system.

    LinuxICE is a complete demonstration of the OpenICE platform. OpenICE is a community project and would appreciate feedback, and other contributions to make LinuxICE and other OpenICE projects awesome. There are definitely issues with the current build. If you can help either by debugging, or by fixing those issues, your contribution will go a long way.

    Not sure if this thread is for discussing the product itself, if not I can ask elsewhere.
    I tried this last week and it didn't seem overly user friendly, mostly the navigation. The way you type in a route is very hard and has small buttons, taking a lot of time way from the road while driving. Did I miss something in the install? Is Navit really that bad?

    yes, searching in navit is painful. You may want to try the alternate gui for navit called "gui internal". I've never had much luck searching in navit either. But I am working on a solution to fix that. Other than navigation, what did you find unfriendly about it?

    Kevin, I'll take another look when I get a chance and let you know. Might be a while. Otherwise I can't say anything bad about it, it's a great piece of software.

    Attempted to install LinuxIce using virtualbox, but I cannot seem to get it to do so.
    I created a virtual machine inside virtualbox and booted LinuxIce from a CD. From there I accessed Apps-->Setup--> but I couldnt find anything for installing the OS. I attempted to start the configuration process but couldnt seem to get it working. Im a complete noob with linux, someone shoot me some step by step using virtualbox.

    It's a LiveCD meaning you boot the machine with the CD in it. You don't have to use Virtual Box, just put the CD in and reboot, that's it. Make sure you have your BIOS set to boot from CD before hard drive and it should boot right into the operating system on the CD itself. You can play around, use it, and return to Windows when you're done. All Linux distributions have a LiveCD of some sort, if you ever want to try out Ubuntu or Gentoo or some other distribution, the LiveCD enables you to boot into it without the hassles of creating virtual environments.

    Short answer: insert CD, reboot. Make sure your BIOS boot settings are correct.

    I see what your saying. My CD drive actually bit the dust a while back, so I have the image mounted to a virtual CD drive and that was how I booted into it. Going to give it a shot later. Can u still run the configuration properly inside virtualbox without issues?

    I have no idea about Virtual Box, don't even know what it is.
    If you have a newer computer with a newer BIOS, you can actually boot from a flash drive. Install the .iso onto a flash drive with a Windows program that'll let you do it, then reboot with it in the slot. It should work the same way.
