Looking for a lightweight X replacement

Post by louigi600 »

While working on my clash project (see "I'm working on a slightly bigger project") I'm now seeking a really small X compatible windowing system.

I prefer X compatibility because I can choose from a variaty of window managers and because most GUI applications for linux are X compatible.

I had a look at Picogui but: it's not X compatible, it's not compiling on my machine.

Anyone have any ideas ?

Regards
David

Sorry I forgot to mention ...I'd appreciate also vesa support.

Apparently TinyX only supports upto vga16 ... is this correct ?

Anyone know how to strip XF86 4.4 sources to have just enough to build tinyX or kdrive ?

Moreover where can I get detailed instructions on building tinyX / kdrive ?
