Other Window managers


Does anyone know of any lightweight window manager similar to Window Maker or Fluxbox that does not require the Development package and headers. ? thanks

Here you will find descriptions, screenshots and configuration files for all popular window managers, along with related resources, including a news and discussion area.

If you want a lightweight window manager that doesn't require the developer packages, why don't you install binary rpm's or something like that. You normally only need the devel packages for compilation.

All RPMs are binary packages.

Why not just install the headers? All distros come with it.
