Linux Login, UPS and Linux Touch Screen
I'm interested in creating a linux based in car pc. Probably based on an ITX Mobo
I've read a fair bit about fake UPS etc, but what I think I'm really interested in would be a REAL UPS. It could be set to shut down (or hibernate) the PC if power failed for 1 minute which would cover the current drop on ignition or me killing the power and it would then perform a safe shutdown... But I don't see anything like this mentioned anywhere?
My plan would be to use linux as my OS. If i use a liliput 7" touch screen - i. what driver issues do people have with linux - ii. do you not NEED to login to linux? That would be a complete pain in the t*ts... ...even if i could get some form of onscreen keyboard I wouldn't want to have to login every time I get in the car...
