First off, I understand that I have a HUGE learning curve ahead of me....LOL
But I am installing my PS2 in my truck w/ a 5 in. Sony PS one LCD, and now I am thinking off running Linux as well, mainly for mp3 capabiltys and poss. some other simple apps. as I learn.
I thought of trying to get the hang of Linux on my pc first but I think I will be needing it ALOT to gain internet access while learning Linux.
I have found the complete PS2 linux kit on e-bay w/ buy it now price of $130 and in the US too!! I think this will be the cheapest route to go as far as equipment due to the fact that I already own a PS2 and have the LCD.
My main ?'s are, am I going to shoot myself for even trying to set up a simple media player app. w/ this set up? I am not looking to go out and become a code monkey overnight, but I may get biten by the bug after some time...LOL
Also since the Linux kit comes w/ a cable to hook up to sync on green moniters and has rca audio outs, (this cable connects to the a/v multi outlet on the PS2),..... would it be worth doing the mod. to the PS one LCD as far as picture quality??
As of now I have all the power req. figured out for the PS2,( DC-DC PS mod.), and the LCD,(12V DC- 7.5V DC adapter). And I am planning on using a Preamp or active EQ to control my audio signal.
How does this sound for a simple first Truckputer, simple as in I am not going w/ GPS, or ODB interface, ( even though this does appeal to me cause I am an auto tech. by trade), or other poss. carputer uses. I am really just interested in an MP3 player and storage, and the ability to play a game or watch a DVD of course...LOL
Any info, links, ideas, "you are a fool to try", whatever anyone has will be absorbed like a sponge I promise you...........LOL As a single, UGLY 29 year old man, I have lots of free time to play around w/ something like this...........LOL
BTW, I have learned so much from this site in the few days I have been reading around the threads, so thanks everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
