How to add minimal X functionality to bare-bones linux.
Posted on 2008-11-19
I've got a bare-bones bootable Linux CD that contains a handfull of console apps I use. Right now the CD is only 25MB.
I'd like to include GParted because it has the ability to resize NTFS partitions and it's easier to use than Parted. I tried to include X buy running jk_cp on startx, then xinit, then copied a bunch of files/folders over from /etc but after adding another 25MB of files/folders I still wasn't able to get X working.
What's the easiest/smallest way to include GParted? Am I correct to assume that I don't need a window manager since I'll only be launching 1 program?
