    If you want to help you are more than welcome. Here is the updated TODO list for LinuxICE: http://nextabyte.com/wiki/index.php?title=TODO

    There are some testing/debugging stuff but the big thing for beta1 is packaging of navit and its dependencies.

    Beta1 is really overdue. I've been really busy lately with nghost/nghost2 related things to get beta1 out.

    The biggest thing that's been sucking up my time that will be ready for the final is called "icepanel". It's an opengl'd panel/dock application that will replace the current matchbox panel. It will act as a launcher for custom apps/scripts/commands along with be able to control via sockets nghost and hopefully some other apps (kazer:navit?). I'll try to get a video up as it progresses more.

    Is there a skin for nghost that works well at 800x480?

    EDIT, don't worry I just installed the latest version and its fine now

    As promised, here is a demo video of the LinuxICE icepanel. The main feature of this carpc friendly dock is its server/client structure that will allow it client plugins to connect to it. Voice recognition and gesture plugins are already in development. nGhost 1.1 will be able to connect with it also.

    More info can be found on the wiki page:

    Awesome work kev, looking forward to the beta1 release as GPS integration is what is really holding me back from using linux in the car.

    we can always use another mirror for the LinuxICE iso download. If you get it on your site, pm me the link and I'll post it with the other mirrors at http://LinuxICE.com

    hello kev000
    is the distribution completely free? Or could I get problems when hosting the files on my webserver?

    If it could be destributed for free I can host it on my server in the next few days.

    It has included libdvdcss which breaks the DMCA, and mplayer which circumvents mp3 decryption without paying patent royalties.

    Other than those two it's all free.

    Moving forward we will upgrade to nGhost2 and replace mplayer with gstreamer (which has legally purchase-able codecs via fluendo).
