    Thanks

    well resurrecting is a big word.... I did do some work on it. If you know how to get the CVS version, you can see the changes I made. It's not much, mainly just a skin changer and some panels load faster. I don't have much money to work on a Car PC system right now so I'm not too involved in this project at the moment.

    I'd like to see a version 0.4 out soon so that it shows that it is going forward(slowly) but I don't have access to create files.

    Ok... So from what I have read in this thread, and through other forums, there's isn't actually a specific CarPC Linux distro... Is this right?

    The reason I ask, is I am one of those numerous Windows users who would like to use Linux in my CarPC, but cannot find a simple solution to easily get me going so that I might learn more by tinkering.

    I learnt what little Win PC skills I have by trial and error, with the simple knowledge that if I stuffed it, I could easily reinstall. However everything that I have read on here seems to inticate thats not so easy with linux.

    Anyway... If anyone knows of a Distro, or even a tutorial on getting a Linux Car PC up and running, could they please let me know.

    That is basically correct.

    If you are learning Linux, this isn't the place to start. A carpc will require a custom installation of Linux, strange device drivers (touch screen drivers), enabling hibernation (or tuning the boot process a lot), etc. Maybe start with a mainstream linux distribution on common desktop hardware. Learn how to modify that, and then decide if you want to move onto the carpc environment.

    I don't want to be discouraging, I just don't want you to have a discouraging first experience.

    Yah linux isn't easy. I also was wondering about a linux front end. Syridian, Maybe you could download mandrake or another downloadable copy of linux and play with it first. Windows is much easier to mess with though. I should install my copy of mandrake 10.0 but im lazzy

    hi all, i've stopped working on headunit (and my CarPC hobby) ever since I got rid of my RX-7 (*sniff*). anyway, if anyone would like to take over the project, i can give them full write access to the CVS tree. please send me a PM if you are interested and have the C++ experience necessary to charge forward! i'll be available for assistance in the beginning to help you get started with the code.

    Has anyone else taken up this project? Has it been forked or anything?

    Follow the directions in the INSTALL.unix file carefully. Did you install id3lib properly?
