Custom distro installer that uses GTK libraries
I'm currently working on a little project of mine, creating a cut down version of slackware 10. I have it all loaded to the mounted partition with all the applications that I want included and have tar.gz the partition to make my base image, now I would like to make a installer for it.
I would like to do something similiar to Fedora's installer but it uses python which I don't have any experience with. So I decided to use RealBasic 2006 since I have limited C Sharp .net experience it seems very easy to learn.
I've started to make a few of the install screens and doing some of the coding but before I get too far into it, I would like to know if there is anyway I can run a gtk application with out having to run a desktops manager like kde.
I have tried it with just the xserver running but it looked terrible and did not seem to work properly. Is there anything else I need to load or install to make it run the same as it would in a kde. Failing that it is not possible I may make it a livecd and then use the installer through KDE environment
