Re: Gtk on Embedded Device Query

Hi Sven,

Thanks for the suggestions.

I have two options left now.

Now I am planning to run gtk+ on X-server. I started hunting for X-server and found TinyX.
Now how to cross-compile X-server? Is there any document on it.

I downloaded X-server from Xfree86 ftp site. Plz. guide me on cross-compiling.

GTK+-DirectFB is only a solution if the graphics chips you are using is
supported by DirectFB. DirectFB has software fallbacks that allow it to
run on all kind of hardware, but if you want to use it on an embedded
device than you first need to make sure that the graphics hardware is
fully supported by DirectFB. If it isn't, and you don't have the
resources to develop a graphics driver for it, then you might have more
luck with other backends such as X11.
