Re: lcd- big mistake

Also watch out for the current drawn by the display. When connected to a car battery, the display can draw many amps without a problem. However if you use an AC adapter, make sure that it can supply the necessary current at the required voltage or will possibly damage the adapter and certainly not ...

Re: lcd- big mistake

There are of course power supplies for at home too. The PS2 I find a bit strage, if that´s really the case. It looks like a round DC plug in the picture. My suggestions: 1. Get a DC power supply (sorry can't suggest a particular one). 2. Cut and splice your car DC adapter with a mains DC power supp...

Re: small quake 3 issue

quake3 should automatically run full screen in a text console (not X or via ssh). How would you even see a small black window on a black screen, unless it blotted out some existing text? If you get it to run, but do not hear sounds, try using sudo. wait i just run quake 3 by excuting the .arm file ...
