 Real Time System Information On a LCD Display

Linux Gazette tells us how to display Real Time System information on a LCD Display using LCDproc & lcdmod.

"LCD or a Liquid Crystal Display is almost seen everywhere ranging from digital watches to microwave ovens, from audio systems to PDA's and even some high-end servers. There are several cheap commercially available displays which can be controlled through the computer's parallel port or the serial port(RS-232). LCDs are manufactured by quite a few different companies. Units typically seen in the surplus market come from Hitachi, Epson, Hewlett Packard, Optrex, or Sharp. Common configurations are 16, 20, 24, 32, or 40 characters by 1, 2, or 4 lines."
