Default It's Coming together

I'll grab some pictures tonight. Called it a night last night when I got to the PWM IAC. That being said though, it's looking really nice, and just waiting to finish, get the stimulator from Scott and figure if I'm going to try to wire the harness in or get some boomslang for a PNP.

OH..yeah and get input from anyone on using linux. The megaTunix actually looks really nice, i've played with it a bit and i thuroughly enjoy the simplicity. I'm going to send an email to DIY and ask about their reccomnedations on a Serial to USB for linux (namely..should i buy theirs or just go get one from..wherever). Unless anyone else has some input?

I like the layout of megatunix but I could never find a usb-serial adapter that worked in OSX. Thats the only reason I am not using it.

tunix looks like the same things as tune with different GUI, correct?

I had a hell of a time getting the drivers for the USB adapter to work on XP, even with the drivers. Using my old radioshack guy, doesnt require the adapter + extension cable, and is longer, so I can play with the trigger angle while pointing the light

sounds like I'll be picking sometin' up from Radio Shack. Seriously most you guys with older Lgaptops should try running Xubuntu it's light and isn't system intensive.

Try one with an FTDI chipset, its fully supported under 2.6 kernels.

Quick excerpt from the page

MegaTunix is the only tuning software for Unix (and now Win32) class operating systems that supports all existing megasquirt firmwares. It has been recently redesigned in such a way as to be extensible to support new firmware variants with little to no new code needing to be written. The new design permits the gui tabs that relate to MegaSquirt variables to be redesigned using the Glade GUI designer for windows or Glade gui designer for Unix to change or alter the gui look/feel to accomodate new controls on more advanced firmwares.

This tuning software is capable of the most complete interrogation of the ECU than any other tuning software out there currently (MegaTune for windows, MS-Palm, MegaSquirtPCC). This advanced interrogation is configurable and provides the most complete detection of the target firmware, (such to prevent mis-detection) and would even allow MegaTunix to work with non-MS hardware though this left up as an exercise for the user.

MegaTunix is developed on Linux (Gentoo Linux specifically), but does work on all other Linux distros (Assuming the proper libraries are installed), FreeBSD and Mac OS-X (with darwinports and the necessary support libraries installed) and now Win32 platforms as of 0.6.1 and newer.
