I'm currently looking for an OS for this DIY Project I have of turning an old Dell Latitude CPX into a digital photo frame displaying pictures from a share on my server.
Can DSL achive this and what application would be able to handle the slideshow once booted up?
Posted by kcw118 on May 05 2006,16:05I'm starting a similar project and found this web site:
< http://www.thewares.net/item/33 >
The author has very detailed instructions for setting up the software, including scripts for automating the on-off times. The only thing I'll be trying to do different is to replace my HD with a IDE-to-CF adapter and run everything off of a Compact Flash card.

Hope this helps.
