Mini Lcd screen on headless server
 
I need some help, I built a media server, that is currently headless. I wanted to install a mini lcd screen, so i don't have to hook up a screen every time i need to reset and the boot fails. or hangs up. I was thinking about using a psone screen. Just curious if anyone has done this or used a different lcd screen?

Awesome little screen, let me tell you. Works great in linux too!

Cheers,

Josh

Thanks, did you mod the screen at all? cause I did forget to include my System information on my first post.
OS: Ubuntu Server edition
Ram: 2gb

I kind of want the screen to display what you would see on a normal monitor. So basically boot and the command line.

Sorry bro, I don't own it. But I know people online who do, and no one has ever had problems with it.

It, like all other USB monitors, can be used as a main screen.... BUT! Until the kernel has loaded the driver it will be blank. In the case of the driver being compiled into the kernel again the screen will be blank until the kernel is loaded so any problems prior to kernel load will not be accessable.

We have a duplication device that uses a small lcd display. It is connected and configured like any screen.

Many industrial computers and industrial computer supply companies offer choices.
