I am just starting with *nix systems and would like to try and setup a headless server or two for file and web hosting. while searching around I found what I think is a very nifty idea (A multi function LED display) that could help me out and also look cool in the process here is a link: http://www.sorgonet.com/trashing/systemled/
well I have tried to install the Parallel drivers that it recommends in the page, only I get errors while trying to run the *.pl file
I have tried using Fedora, Ubuntu, CentOS 5, DSL and a few other distro's and alll end up with the same thing.
I tried to contact the site's owner and was told that he was not helping anyone with the construction or trouble shooting of the display.
Or if anyone knows how to make something similar that atleast has the Binary Clock, RAM usage and HDD usage meters that would also be great.
Any help would be appreciated.
