Re: gnome-desktop on omap3

Do I need to build the full X for it or just tinyX(Kdrive) will be sufficient?

What is the differerence between Gnome-desktop and Gnome-mobile? If
I'm not wrong Gnome-mobile can be interpreted as a subset of
Gnome-desktop with less or say customized packages and utilities.

Also I'm looking for Gnome-mobile solution only and I thought building
and configuring Gnome sources as listed on the site , I can port gnome on omap3. Since X was
not mentioned there so I thought it may not require X.

Thanks for your comcern
