good but not entirely happy
Goal 1: hardware put together - done
Goal 2: LinuxICE installed - done
Goal 3: LinuxICE config'd - in progress
Goal 4: put in car - done
Goal 5: enjoy for a while - more on this below
So I've installed LinuxICE, and it's a really nice package, I do like the ease of ubuntu. but there are some thing's I'm not thrilled about [network manager being one]
my biggest problem with my install is I HATE the location of my LCD. [I also broke my touch screen putting it in] The screen is just too low for me, and it's barely readable when the suns out.
So as much as i love my 10.4" i think I'm going to find an 8" touch screen lcd. Delete my center vents [ MAYBE relocate them, but probably just cap them off] and move the lcd up a few inches. and add a bit of a visor. hopefully with the brighter screen, and visor it will be more read able, and I'm going down in size to allow me to move the screen.
<OVER AMBITIOUS PART> if I'm so inclined I'd LIKE to put the monitor on a track so that it can slide up. this isn't a hidden monitor [like bugbytes ibug] but just a way to get it higher and more visable. so i'd like it to slide straight up so the top edge sits 4-5 inches above the dash. I have a general idea how to do this, but I'm really unsure about it at this point, so thoughts, links, photo's are all welcome! </OVER AMBITIOUS PART>
