    Sorry guys, no updates yet. I've been cranking away in grad school trying to graduate. Also, with the great work veetid's done on Centrafuse, I'm kind of tempted to use that instead of HeadUnit in my own installation. However, if there is enough interest, I could be convinced to put some time into HeadUnit again (or at least help someone else pick up where I left off).

    Centrafuse requires Windows

    I've not touched C++ in years, and I've never coded with qt...but if you document your code I could try and work on it some

    What do you use as an editor, btw? JCreator works great for Java...but that's Java.

    ******* ace.... linux would be far better in a carpc :d

    1 thing though.. whats the deal these days qwith shutting down linux... how quick is it to get the computer completely off ?? and i always rememebr linux being a scrot to boot quickly.. but i suppose yuo could actually make that the font end of a linux disto.. then it'd boot quick and have no useless ****e

    I have yet to try out headunit (and refuse to complie qt into my installation right now, but i may play with qt-embedded in /opt) but I am gonna look through your code to see how faw along things are...

    I think this is a sf.net project too, right? Maybe if you do like an open call for developers/patchers, we could get a good open source carputer interface going. I wouldn't mind sending in patches of code to the main tree every once in a while once I get going on my project, but as of right now I am stuck coding what qt would give me (except it is a 3d-capable interface that is cross platform). I still don't know if I am going in the right direction, but I have yet to submit my project to sf.net to see if I can get a good cvs/subversion server to put code on

    anyway, gonna browse your code

    The latest kernels provide a stable suspend-to-disk function that works like hibernate in windows. Also, its pretty easy to tweak the startup scripts in linux to get a sub 15-second boot time.

    It uses Qt, so most of the code should work straight out of the box in OSX. The only platform specific class that needs to be ported over is the one that implements the media player interface. Why, were you thinking of installing a Mac mini in your car?

    NoPistonPC didnt your mother ever tell you t ocomment your code?

    I'm having a bit of a fiddle with the headunit code at the moment, I'm going to stick an EPIA based gentoo machine into my car soon so I thought I'd better make sure there is a nice Linux front end to use. HeadUnit is by far the best option so far. DashPC is perhaps the ugliest application I've ever seen

    I'm not familiar with the Qt library but I'll try and work it out.

    Hey I've been looking around for a while for a decent linux frontend, and this seems to be quite good. Im just waiting for all the librarys to build and going to install it on my laptop to test it out.

    I can also help with the development if you still looking for people to code for you. I very fluent in C being a embedded software engineer and have done a bit of C++ (very basic) but im sure it won't be too hard to adapt to.
