    I dont want to run a full vmware, that is out of the question... if I have to do that than I'll just run a dedicated windows carpc... no advantage from running linux...

    if we can get wine or soemthing to run freedrive quickly enough and it works well than that is a different storry...

    I actually run the linux version. Right now there is a problem with alpha blending the png files under linux. Once I have that done (this week), I'll post a linux version. (Statically linked, so the executable will be big)

    Hi,

    1. Source eventually, prob GPL. It's not quite ready for the world.
    2. The default skin has a GPS button, but the code doesn't have it link to anything yet (and it's commented out in the screen.ini file)

    Did you ever figure this out? For HeadUnit I created my own cross-platform wrapper for DirectShow (in windows) and xine (in linux) to handle the hardware better in both OS's. But, it would be nicer if we could just use MPlayer on both platforms. The problem I had with it is that it has relatively poor support in Windows. Hopefully, it will improve soon.

    It is improving all the time. The first thing I'd like is proper window position, at least then I could hard code window positions for video.

    I like it

    hey, this is pretty good, nice and clean

    to get this up and running in debian there were a couple of things that I needed.

    I had to make some library links (requires xlibs-static-dev package).

    # ld --whole-archive -share -o /usr/lib/libXxf86vm.so.1 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXxf86vm.a

    # ld --whole-archive -share -o /usr/lib/libXinerama.so.1 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXinerama.a

    I had to install the libsqlite0-dev and the libsqlite0 packages.

    thanks for the FE to play with till my programmer gets off of vacation

    so i am playing with your app here and have some questions on how to get it going:

    How do i build the sqlite db?

    What is the syntax to set up the GPS application link in the carpc.ini file?

    [GPS]
    ???=gpsdrive

    thanks
