I'm planning (hardware to arrive tomorrow) to build a "car-computer"
based on LFS. My plann is to create a set of "directions" like the LFS
book, that will use the existing book (Step 1: follow chapters 1 through
5 of the LFS book, Step 2: ..., Step 3: Read chapter # sections on
foo_bar and frobazz ... etc. ) My thought is that this might be a good
example of LFS in an embedded computer.
It will be a cross build, i.e. the complation and build machine is not
the same as the target.
The "car-computer" will have mapping and GPS software, probably
gpsdrive, also, CD, MP3 and Ogg play, maybe DVD/video play/record,
rear-view camera and eventually data collection.
I am open to questions and suggestions.
Is there a quide/template for creating the LFS book that I could
lillput 7" wide screen VGA (800x480) monitor/touchscreen.
VIA EPIA MII-1000 mother board.
256 MB memory.
auto power sequencer.
2.5" HD, CF boot.
GARMIN eTrex GPS receiver.
data collection hadware TBD.
