I'm mailing as to clear up some confusion I've built up regarding
KDrive/TinyX. That confusion mostly stems from the fact that looking
for KDrive/TinyX on Google, you get quite some pages, most of them
pretty old. Then I built it according to the informations on one of those
sites, from the standard XFree86 4.3.0 sources -- but I've no idea if
what I got actually was KDrive/TinyX. And to add to all that, there's
now an independant source base for an X server at freedesktop.org.
Now, my questions are:
- What exactly is KDrive, and what exactly is TinyX?
- Is KDrive/TinyX what I actually want for an old IBM
ThinkPad 701CS with a Chips & Technologies 65545
(1MB Video RAM)? It's been running XFree86 3.3.6
so far, but I'm looking for something less... overkill.
- If so, do I want the Xvesa server or the Xchips server?
- Should I use XFree86 4.3.0 or the stuff to be found in
fd.o's CVS repository?
- How exactly do you compile KDrive/TinyX from those
sources, respectively, _nowadays_? According to one
of the sites I found through Google, you've to do this:
#define KDriveXServer YES
#define TinyXServer YES
#define XvesaServer YES
#define ProjectRoot /usr/X11R6
#define BuildLBX YES
#define BuildDBE YES
#define KdriveServerExtraDefines -DPIXPRIV
#define BuildRandR YES
#define BuildXInputLib YES
#define Freetype2Dir $(TOP)/extras/freetype2
#define Freetype2LibDir $(TOP)/exports/lib
#define BuildXTrueType YES
#define BuildScreenSaverExt YES
#define BuildScreenSaverLibrary YES
#define SharedLibXss YES
#define XfbdevServer YES
not much explanation provided and it all looks
a little confusing).
I'd be grateful for even the most humble hints and/or pointers.
