All, I've been browsing the FreeBSD site looking for a system I can embed in the car. Optimally, it will do video output via a RCA cable (ala your VCR) so I can plug it in to one of the new Alpine radios with an AUX in. Input will probably come via a USB gaming pad (arrow keys, a few buttons, and 16-20 keys). I'd like to have bluetooth and 802.11b/g for communicating with a base station and the in car GPS and phone audio systems. USB (4-6 ports) would be perfect - I can get the keyboard, bluetooth, 802.11g, and ODB II connectors in without a hub. Most I've seen boot from compact flash, but booting from a USB thumb drive or SD ram would also be useful. Audio would also be nice, but I can get away with the bluetooth link.
The form factor should be as small as possible for under-seat, behind-dash, or trunk installation. I've seen the Soekris systems, and they're at a good price point, but while they'd support most of what I'd need, they don't seem to have RCA video output, which would be a major plus for real time color displays of status and information (has anyone played with the USB video options available? Does FreeBSD support them?) Suggestions? Comments? Projects already done? -Brian _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
