xlib and dependencies

I have a linux system set up. Very minimal. I have a compiler and I need to compile xlib and all its dependencies so that I can use it. I don't have any type of package management system because it is an embedded application. So I need to know what all I need to build before xlib. Assume that I only have the core utils and gcc. Please don't tell me to download binaries, I cant do that, it wont work. Unless you have armeb binaries for me. Thanks.

Hi -

1. "Google xlib source" should take you somewhere near here:

2. Familiarize yourself a bit (read some of the FAQs, etc)

3. Download the source and see how far you get.

If stuff is missing, then the initial "configure" part of the build should tell you. Even better, the "readme" files that come with the source distribution should also list dependencies. As well as various configuration options.

Bottom line: just download the source, jump in, and try it.

That's absolutely the fastest, surest way to proceed.

'Hope that helps .. PSM
