Wine instead of VMWare. IIRC, VMWare doesn't run all that smoothly in Linux.
Fusion thanks so much for giving me this idea... to be honest I would have paid you to do this with my 07 Fusion...
But instead, I now bought, just about all the things you have into your Fusion. I loved the idea with the EQ right under the screen and how easily you can modify the dash bezel. I changed the LCD, just because there was 1 that I preferred over yours.
I should receive my stuff hopefully by this weekend, and hopefully it is nice enough outside for me to attempt this project.
I can't do enough reading to get this out of my head, I can't wait to start.
I enjoy the fact that you guys are using nLite for windows XP, as I may do that myself, but as I continued to read yesterday, on the site where I bought my CarPC, they offer a Linux Distro made specifically for this... FREE!
Its called Linux iMedia... Has anyone attempted this yet?, can anyone give me a little insight as to what to expect. It sounds awesome, and all the O/S to me just get me all excited to try... I may have to run VMware... ANYWHO
I myself probably won't be hooking the original speakers to an amp, most likely just throwing my 2 subs in the back, but definitely can't wait to start this installation! If only Fusion were around to help me or someone else, who has already done this job... I am not to worried, until I start kicking my car...
Thanks guys for this awesome post! I don't even remember how I found it... But you have now given a new Ford Fusion owner something to look forward about!
Another question that I pose towards our enthusiasts reading this... Has anyone thought of a way to cover the screen/LCD? I am more talking along the lines so things don't get stolen. I don't live in a rough neighborhood, but you never know who is walking by?
Any ideas anyone? My stuff comes in a couple days, and thats when the fun begins!
And I did want to add... Where I bought my VOOM, I found a Linux O/S called iMedia.... Has anyone heard of it? Tried it? Is it worth it, or am I better off with my copy of XP and nLite?
Thanks! - BW
FF very nice install. I'm redoing my carputer and I'm going to model some things from what you've done. Namely the EQ, I like that idea.
I might have missed it, but what - if anything - are you doing for FM radio? And what do you have in mind for your version 3 goals?
