obviously select only the modular parts you actually need don't just emerge xorg-x11 (this pulls down loads of unnecessary stuff)<br><br>determine the exact dependencies necessary<br><br>in addition to kdrive (which I'm not hugely familiar with but search &quot;xorg kdrive&quot; on google and i found some useful mailing lists etc.) USE=&quot;minimal&quot; reduces unneceassary stuff i use minimal as a global for a lot of packages when building livecd/usb's
<br><br>I use gentoo-portage to check what use flags do, also actually reading the ebuild in question can tell you a lot<br><br><a href="">

You can try USE=kdrive (kdrive is X11 mode for embedded devices),<br>AFAIK it reduces it's size by removing useless features.<br><br>--<br>Sincerely,<br>Vladimir &quot;Farcaller&quot; Pouzanov<br><a href=""></a><br>--<br><a href="mailto:gentoo-embedded@g.o">gentoo-embedded@g.o</a> mailing list<br><br></blockquote></div><br><br clear="all"><br>-- <br>E-mail: <a href="mailto:hanni.ali@...">
