This project is to extend freevo for use in a PC installed in an automobile. It will allow for pluggable services (such as gps, music, cellphone) to be incorporated into the system. An event model that enforces simple user input. This is a requirement while driving. Using a keyboard and mouse is obviously not a safe form of input.

Here's a picture of the setup.

The hardware I used is an EPIA-M9000 board with gentoo linux and VWCDPIC since I have an audi. Check out this site to install gentoo linux on EPIA. Here is my kernel config file if you need a reference. I also have the Uniden Wireless PCI PCW 200, and this card works really well with linux-wlan-ng.

Here are the plugins that allows you to control freevo using the VWCDPIC and start the network.
