Car enthusiasts and shade-tree mechanics have been modding their vehicles since almost day one, and the increasing importance of Linux and open source software shows no sign of slowing them down. In this presentation, Nathan Willis will review his recent personal experience building a Linux-powered IVI system for aftermarket use in his personal vehicle, and discuss where the software projects employed succeed and come up short. The topics covered will include power and runtime management, package management and integration, hardware support difficulties, and licensing concerns.
