I am attempting to build kdrive (or xorg) for several specific
platforms (via cross compiling) and my goal is to end up with just
enough of a feature set to fire up rdesktop/vnc or other apps without
a window manager and as the only running app. Obviously with
After reading much of the wiki and other sources regarding kdrive and
modular xorg I still am at a loss as to what the minimum
requirements/dependencies are for a kdrive server and including
platform specific video driver. Can anyone shed some light on bare
minimum dependencies for kdrive + video driver and/or point me in the
direction of where to continue reading?
I have walked through building individual components one by one in
attempt to learn what depends on what and have a much better grasp on
some of the dependencies than I did a couple days ago however I am
still lacking knowledge. What would be very helpful would be docs
which explain each component so I can (hopefully) choose which is
needed and which isn't.
For example I see the xorg-server configure option
--disable-screensaver which is what I prefer...don't need one, does
this mean that scrnsaverproto is not needed then? If this device will
never be rendering video or 3d what more can I disable and/or not have
Is libXau, pixman, libXfont, etc even needed?
I don't mind readinging/researching deeper if someone can point me to
more information about the relationship and dependencies between the
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
