[News] GNU/Linux Installed in a Car

Linux Carputer Guide 101

,----[ Quote ]
| Where the carputer is installed is dependant on space constraints, and is 
| completely up to you.  
| The planning stages are critical to this DIY project.  If you’re not careful 
| and ask questions along the way, it’s reasonable to expect wasting money on 
| components that are incompatible with each other or not suited for the 
| purpose you need.  You will also need to be familiar with the electrical 
| system in the car.  Wiring diagrams will go a long way towards knowing which 
| wires you can use.  Most motherboards and all laptops have on-board sound 
| cards which may be more than suitable for the project.  If you plan on using 
| a FM modulator or auxiliary input on a head unit, you probably don’t need to 
| upgrade to an external USB or PCI sound card.  You may run into unforeseen 
| problems with on-board sound (engine noise) that may require using an 
| external sound card to isolate the issue.
