    Scyx, I think the problem is that xine isn't installed properly. If you have installed the xine package in fedora, make sure that it also installs the headers and libraries. I haven't used fedora in a while so I can't remember if there is a separate xine development package. If there is, you may have to install that. Otherwise, you can always download the source from the URL specified in the INSTALL file and compile it yourself (./configure --enable-sdl && make && make install).

    In any case, that's the reason you're getting the errors.

    While you're at it, make sure you also have all the other libraries installed that are listed in the INSTALL file.

    rick, no new releases are scheduled at this point, but like I said before, I may have time this summer. Regarding using linux as the basis for a CarPC, I think it is a great alternative to Windows. If we can put together a complete CarPC distribution, many more people will be able to use it...even those that don't know anything about Linux. Also, despite what others have said (who probably haven't tried recent versions of Wine), most of the popular Windows-based GPS software, like Destinator and iGuidance, run perfectly fine using Wine.

    But, having said all this, it does take a lot more effort to get something up and running in linux (as you can see from the posts in this thread). But, I see the CarPC is a hobby, and building the software is as much fun for me as the hardware. Now, if only I had more time... Maybe if I did a little less of this: ...i would.

    Alrighty Now, the compilaton works fine Apperantly the FC packages of xine-lib weren't build with explicit SDL support.
    But there's no another problem... I can start headunit, then select the directory where to search for music, it also syncs the database, but when I then want to start the UI, all I get is lots of these errors:
    Code:
    QSqlQuery::prepare: database not open
    QSqlQuery::exec: database not open
    and just before the prompt:
    Code:
    Segmentation fault
    @NoPistonPC: Any idea, what this could be? As I know my luck, probably incompatibilty with FC

    [edit] I should better read carefully the rest of the postings
    I'm now trying the solutions that are there mentionned about loading the SQL driver

    [edit2] I already compiled QT on my own yesterday, but, to not mess up with the installled QT it wanted to make a RPM using checkinstall, worked good. But as I wanted to install, it didn't work.
    So my question now, how can I load manually this SQL driver? All the necessary files should be in the directory where I configured and "maked" QT, or am I wrong?

    I actually did try iGuidance (2.0) under the latest WINE and it ran well except it crashed a lot. Do you have it running "perfectly", because I would honestly like to hear more. It is the only thing stopping me from running Linux and quite frankly it sucks. Were there some tweaks you made?

    Let us know.

    Can you post the app defaults you used? I don't have mine anymore, but I can probably start with yours and figure out which native DLLs to use... also, sometimes, older windows DLLs work better... If we do put together a distro, all these details can be hidden from the end user.

    Question Porting Road Runner to Linux

    Is it not possible for one of you clever Linux Bods to just port RR over to Linux as Guino releases the Source Code...?

    Not unless RoadRunner was written on top of cross-platform libraries like QT, SDL, etc AND is written in a portable language like C/C++.

    No ;-)

    Thats why I asked.

    I've done some programming of large databases in Access some years ago, and have a little knowledge of VB & Fortran but thats it...

    Spent 15 years building and setting up systems and recently maintaining W2k Server network, so have quite good knowledge of MS OS's but nothing about Linux, apart from some very basic Unix commands from Uni... I installed Mandrake once but switch back to MS after a lot of fustration. I would like to get to know Linux though... Just don't know where to start.

    Hello everyone


    I'm kinda new to the car pc business and i just got my setup working after a lot of fiddling around.
    Now I'm looking for a good front-end in linux and since I don't want to install a dedicated distribution, headunit seems like a good (only?) choice.
    You guy(s) have done a great job with it already I just have a couple of questions.

    I got the 0.3 version of here, of the sourceforge website and I got a cvs checkout also and I seem to always have the same problem. Maybe I'm just using it wrong ?
    Anyhow, what happens is everytime is choose an album or song in the AudioBrowserScreen it plays that song but afterwards it always plays a song from the first album in my music folder, I can't seem to make it play another album as a whole (no matter the playmode).

    So i don't now if you're still working on the project, if so i'd be willing to give you a hand as I'm probably gonna mess with it a little myself.

    thanks

    paul
