Hi,
Just wanted to release the PyCar for touchscreen and EPIA-M platform.
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=86491
There are 2 ISOs. The one without f for Lilli, the f is for Xenarc and TSView or whatever noname TS monitors you may have.
These features supported:
Code:

- mp3, ogg, wma, aac audio files playback
- avi, mpg video files playback
- cddb support
- playlists support
- settings
- logos
- splashscreens
- EPIA-M only

These features still waiting for 1.3.1 release:
Code:

- autoinstal onto the HDD
- video seeking
- video playlists

These tricks may help you in having more fun with the release:
Code:

- Turn on caching if you see movie stalls or jerking. Set to 160 for 256M or 420 for 512M( Settings->Advanced->Cache size )
- If you see that your touchscreen is not adequate, go to Settings->General->Adjust TS input and adjust the TS( flip x,y and calibrate )
- Keyboard is supported. Active selection is always different from inactive items. You can use either arrows or tab to move to the next selection.
- If your monitro is not 16:9 just change the aspect ration in Settings->Video Settings->Aspect ratio
- After you make changes to the settings, restart the PyCar by pressing X icon in the main menu
- If you run PyCar from CD you won't be able to save your settings after you restart the PC


Here are some pics with the screenshots:

Have fun !

Hi!

I just tried the Lilliput version... it works!

The only problem is the splashscreen. It shows the VW logo, no progress bar and the text-line is messed up (longest lines are not cleaned).
I think you're working on it, aren't you?

Keep up the good work!!

bye!

Yes, the progress and VW logo will be fixed soon.
Text in the bottom cannot be hidden as splash=silent crashes the kernel so I disabled it. Will clean it up after some other good things...

Hmm, my liliput touchscreen didn't work with the "no f" ISO image. I thought maybe I hooked it up wrong, so I hooked the liliput's USB up to my laptop and I could see the touchkitusb being recognized in dmesg's output. Is there something else I'm supposed to do?

I haven't actually tried to use the touchscreen before, so I don't know if it actually works. I'd sure hate to think it's bad, though Smile

Is there a device I could cat to make sure the touchscreen is generating output?

Try image 1.3.0.1 and cat /dev/input/mice to see the signal.

Hello,

since I'm not know python programming (I'm PERL programmer), and I can't help you. I can build gentoo releases for your pycar.

I can try the unichrome driver to play DVD with mpeg-2 with hardware acceleration. But I need to know your make.conf file to build the same gentoo.

thanks.
