Question Opera on Embedded Linux without xwindows?


I'm running a Embedded Linux system and I want to run a browser on that system. I chose Opera because it's already on Embedded Linux (right?) and it's fast. But is it possible to run Opera without xwindows? Because I want the system to be as quick as it can be and xwindows slows it down a lot.

According to the Opera site, it requires an implementation of X window system. However looking around, for example in this page, reveals that there are options (in embedded Linux anyway), one being the use of Qt/embedded with Opera. I don't personally know more about this specific thing, but if you start searching about Qt/embedded (TrollTech might be a good start), you probably find what you're looking for.


opera, xwindows, embedded
