First of all thanks to SB Freddie for keeping me pointing in the right direction and also Sean for the work he's done and secondly, I've got zilch linux experience apart from flashing my android phone
with different roms over the years.
I got a Cubietruck (CT) with 32gb class10 card and I've also got a 120gb ssd. This is to form the backbone of a navigation
/ media centre on my boat. I installed Qbee-X (ubantu), made the rootfs partition fill the card with gparted using the gparted live cd on my pc and formated the ssd with gparted on the CT. Spent a morning getting the wlan working finally discovering that the wlan driver module was missing from the modules folder. I then managed to download the source and then follow the build and install instructions and low and behold (a few errors appeared during the build) it installed and appears to be working. Next was the CM93 charts
for which was frustrating. I got lost
trying to network my pc and CT together (on the list to revisit) and I eventually got to access the ssd plugged in to my pc using Ext2Fs. Transferred the charts over and a load of different movie
formats and all seems working.
Moving the charts around seems fine.
Zooming in and out using the scroll wheel
needs a light touch.
I have a serial
(ps2) Fortuna GPS
receiver which I would like to attach. Am I right in saying I need to connect this via a serial
to ttl adaptor?
Also is there any way of testing OpenCPN with a dummy feed?
Regards and thanks
