12" iBook LCD into portable ext. LCD - 07/22/06 06:42 AM

Hi,

my iBook has been broken for some time now, but the LCD survived. I got a G4 Mini, but I have problems travelling with my 17" LCD and can't get.

Does anybody know tech. details about the iBook 12" LCD? I'd like to connect it to my Mini as external monitor. My plan was to keep the original case with the LCD, throw the guts out (and put all my cables inside), throw the keyboard off (or keep it, so that I wouldn't have to take external keyboard with me).

Any ideas?

a lot of people wonder the same thing about converting the proprietary apple LCD cable to something like DVI. The answer is always find the pinout and build one, but no one has ever done it was far as I can tell.
