What i'm about to
ask must have been asked many times over so I apologise in advance for being
another dumb user.
In short, I want to
run a basic windows (95 up to XP) application on gumstix complete with
keyboard, mouse, normal VGA screen, RS-232 I/O. If not, read no
I have a
"Megasquirt" ECU (Electronic Control Unit) in my car which controls the
engine (fuel injection and ignition timing).
This ECU is
programmed via a RS-232 serial port (I'm using a USB-serial adapter) with a PC
using windows based ('95 - XP) software (called Megatune). The application is quite small (ito memory and cpu
requirements) but it requires, mouse and keyboard input with output to
screen and disk.
I have already
installed a Lilliput 8" touchscreen with the normal 15-pin D-type screen
connector into the visor and I have been looking into "carPCs" but having come
accross this product I'm hoping this
will be my solution. In my case this is the ONLY application I would run
on this device.
Understanding that the "waysmall" runs on a Unix
type operating system I'm hoping one can somehow
run windows applications in a simulator of
1) Could I use the "waysmall" in this
2) What all would I need ito hw and sw to be able to have a complete
solution considering that I need keyboard and mouse input, screen and "disk"
3) I am also looking for a rather small keyboard and
mouse device . Do you know of something that you can
