It also depends what level of functionality you are going for. You have to leave some things running for various accessories to work.
Definitely. Thats why a component breakdown by functionality would be nice. Like, you need XYZ for Bluetooth, XYZ for audio, XYZ for Wifi. I know that is a lot to ask though and its mostly experimentation. When I get mine working I will report back on my setup. It is gonna be a while though.
The site I posted does a listing of what services are tied to what functions. That was why I posted it. It is a highly regarded site in the pc-gamer world, but it is a good resource.
(I've been a sys-admin for 11 years, just now getting to first car-pc project).
i used those black viper settings, but now it shows a login screen when i start up xp. is there a way to disable this without reverting to the xp welcome screen?
Install the XP power toys is the easiest way to setup autologin. Otherwise you have to edit the registry manually.
Even easier way is to see if you can open a run box and run "control userpasswords2" without the quotes. Once that comes up, uncheck the box that says something about requiring a username/password to be typed in. It'll ask for a username/password to auto login with. Then you don't even have to install powertoys. :)
