No interface? /bin/bash isn't an interface? :)
I plan to use gpsd for reading the GPS and storing breadcrumbs, and
serving the GPS coords across the net. I also want it to read some
voltages so it's aware of battery limitations, temperatures, etc,
reading some switches (like the one on the door) and to communicate with
a couple of LCD panels on serial lines. It doesn't need to do anything
with media; that's another machine.
I'd *like* it to use X, but it's really not necessary...
