Use the Cobalt Display / LEDs under Debian Linux
 
Check this guide:
http://hugues.lepesant.com/2005/12/10/cobalt-lcd-use-under-debian/

apt-get install rpm
cd /
wget http://lookass.ch/content_files/panel-utils-4.0-7.i386.rpm
rpm2cpio /panel-utils-4.0-7.i386.rpm | cpio -ivd
cd /etc/init.d/
wget http://hugues.lepesant.com/stuff/cobalt/functions


Write something to display:
/sbin/lcd-write "Line 1" "line 2"

Play around with the "WEB" LED (on/off):
/sbin/led-write 1
/sbin/led-write 2


Example to write IP and date on front-panel:
/sbin/lcd-write "`ifconfig eth0 | grep 'inet addr'| cut -f 2 -d':' | cut -f 1 -d' '`" "`date`"
(e.g.: put this in the crontab...)
