Actually, that's pretty cool. I thought the Mini uses open firmware for power management. Is there not a 'nix piece for that?
ok so i am somewhat torn on what forum to post this in so i am going to post in both. i am running an intel mac mini and have been experimenting with linux (i know sorry for the hardcore OS X only users, hey at least its better than windows right?). The main reason is that there are some awesome apps for Linux that make the entire OS much easier to use in a car/touchscreen environment. Ok with all that out of the way, i was wondering if anybody else has dealt with this much? i have been able to load and run Ubuntu without any problems as a primary OS. the problem that i am having is getting the mini to go to sleep when i turn off the car. i have a carnetix p1900 and it is set to make the mini sleep. i don't know if there is just a setting somewhere or what but any help would be awesome. thank you all in advance
yeah it is really cool. there are some awesome mobile packages that look awesome and are much better for touchscreen. anyway, i am sure that there is one somewhere i just don't know where so i was hoping someone else would know where to point me.
do you mean as a front end? or just as a touch screen driver? distro? all of the above?
i use my front end which is called NAS which is cross platform, currently i am using both OS X and Ubuntu 8.04 (hardy heron). in ubuntu i am using a package called ubuntuMobile, with a few tweaks that lets you run a nice touchscreen gui for ubuntu. as far as drivers i am just using the egalax drivers in ubuntu, and the normal touchkit drivers in OS X
