    I will have ago at doing a skin for the motherboard sensors if you want.. I will include
    connection, cpuinfo, diskcapacity, gfxinfo, interfaceinfo, mbm5info, mbm5version, meminfo, netcapacity, osinfo, rambar, screeninfo, uptime and version in it.. If this is ok, what skin would you prefer it to be in.. the brush alum one maybe ? also in the skin config file, are you using the L01 as the index (unsure if this is the right word) or you using ie. 'time' ?

    cheers

    Cdr, fantastic! Let's do the brush alum first, since it's the default anyway. I was thinking that since we will be adding even more features that MediaCar never supported (like sensors, XM and, so it may make more sense for us to do our own skin from scratch (unless we can get feb or more mods to consistently work with us on the new mods to their skins). Cdr, if you have skinning skills, maybe you can take over on this?

    Anyway, regarding the L01 index v. "TIME" issue, it turns out that MediaCar used the latter ("TIME") so I adopted that same scheme. So, you would do something like this:

    L01,xxx,yyy,www,hhh,rrr,ggg,bbb,pt,font,"TEMP","CP U Temperature"

    The L01 doesn't matter, as long as it starts with an "L" and it is unique.

    Also, can you add a button on the main page that takes you to the status screen? Thanks.

    I could not get through the db sync, it crashed every time. here's what I did every time it crashed i deleted the folder that was being added to the db until it made it through db build. I think its because of duplicate files. I have complete albums so a song may be on more than one album, but its still the same artist/song.

    Also the player doesnt play music, I can browse and queue, but not play.

    Head Unit Distribution

    Hey just wanted to know if there had been a distribution started. I saw talks of one but nothing stated where to find it. The reason that I asked is that I have started on my CarPC and have completed building LFS. I am also pretty good at linux bash scripting, and splicing things together and would liket to help create a distribution for this.

    Thanks,
    Benjamin Pierce

    More mods, can you send me a list of the files in the bad directory? Duplicate files shouldn't be a problem. Try deleting the headunit.db file as well before you sync (in case it was there from a previous version).

    Regarding the playback, did you try turning the volume up? The default is set to 50% when you first run the program and it is very quiet. Were you able to play songs using an older version of headunit?

    Benjamin,

    Pudge was going to look into this, but I think he's been pretty busy lately with other things. If you could try to put something together that contained qt, sqlite, xine, alsa, id3lib and headunit (plus all their dependencies), that would be fantastic! We would need to provide an option during installation of what hardware is in your setup to keep the installed drivers to a minimum.

    I'm running into the same problem. It will crash at number 23 when it builds the db. If I change the directory to single album it will build the db and I can browse the songs, but it won't play the music. Turning volume up doesn't help in may case. The song doesn't get played-I see a dos command window that states: open failed: d:\\mp3\\a perfect circle\thirteenth step\\01-The Package.mp3 The previous version of headunit ran on this pc. Hope this is of some help.
