    configuration for building source

    hi all,

    i am building small linux system. i am trying to compile my X windows, downloaded fro version X11R6.8.2.

    the only installation guide i can found is from the site.
    it seems that when i run "make world" it compiles everything.
    how can i configure the installation, so the size will be quiet small? since i will install it on a Compact Flash Card. (e.g. selecting only the appropriate driver, etc.)

    from an article found in the internet :

    it says that it is possible to create X windows system with the size 5MB RAM and 16MB disk. and clues how to do it?

    thanks for the help.

    Hi all,

    So im back again with the question. i try googling and find this thread in the forum but it doesnt help much:

    I am new to linux actually, but now im doing cross development project to make small linux system on Compact Flash card.
    I am using OpenSuse 10.1 with Intel processor as my host and my target ystem is also x86 processor and will boot from the CF card.

    I am finished with the basic system, now im starting with the X windows system. I have some questions that i couldnt find the answer after googling.

    I am using the X11R6.7.0. from and I am planning to do:
    - make the shadow directory build using lndir command
    - configure the host.def file
    - build the X windows:
    - install to the CF card (supposed it is mounted on /mnt/cf):
    make install DESTDIR=/mnt/cf
    can i do this?

    i am desperating since the last 3 days just to try build the package but it always fail. is there any detail reference to do this?
    i even cannot find a reference that describes what are the directories in the source packages for, and how to make the configuration.

    big thanks for helping for the beginner
