Running X on ARM target with Embedded Linux

Started by embeddedtoday December 17, 2007
Hi Friends, 

I am having an ARM target(S3C2440A)with TFT LCD. Now currently I am
running 2.4 kernel on this target and we developed the LCD drivers also
and able to disply some images on the LCD at the time of Linux booting. 

Now my main intention is to run Xwindows(X11R6 protocol). Can anybody
guide how can i build Xwindows to run on ARM target. I want detailed steps
for this. 

Regards

Kris

Consider implementing a framebuffer driver for your LCD display. This allows you to run both the linux console and the Xfb X server on your hardware with no additional work.

First of all, you may want to check out some lightweight X servers like kdrive: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KDrive http://www.freedesktop.org/Software/Xserver You can find plenty of documentation there. -- emboliaschizoide.splinder.com
