For about two months now I have had my simplex node (GMSKRepeater) running on a stand-alone Raspberry PI, it's is brilliant.
As the node (MB6IRL) is 'attended only', all I have to do is turn it on, the whole thing starts-up automatically and connects to my preferred reflector, it's wireless so the only connections are the USB between radio/gmsk (Tait from Nothants) and the antenna and DC supply to the radio.
I don't need a keyboard or mouse connected or even a monitor, it sits in a small plastic box on top of the radio and that's it!

I've recently done the same for a friend of mine running a DVAP (mw0rbl) and it works well, all you have is a DVAP sat on top of a plastic box housing an R-PI and that's it! No keyboard, mouse or monitor.
Simply plug it in within range of your wifi router and you are up and running automatically with an absolute minimal setup.

I am no Linux expert and I am not doing anything clever here, I'm just using and arranging what other clever people have done before.
Software on both systems is the Jonathan Naylor packages.
