Hi, All

I use Gentoo in a simple machine.  Nowadays it uses a hard drive, but
I would like to use a small IDE flash drive.  I found the embedded
Gentoo guide, which resulted in a very low size system, but when I
include X, it more than doubles its size.

How can I make X "thinner"?  The system doesn't need a window manager,
so I didn't install any.  The machine application is the X shell.  It
uses Python and WxPython.

you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and
I have one idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have
two ideas." - George Bernard Shaw
