http://serverfault.com – Im looking for the smallest linux dist. (x86) available that will run a very small VGA app. The app needs to run 800x600 mode. Its a bit like a kiosk mode, only there no user interaction. I'm looking at TinyCore, thats pretty tiny (8MB) but i need to pointers how to get svgalib working there (http://www.svgalib.org). Also since i develop the app. myself, what would be a good platform with GCC en svgalib support that support development (gcc) so i can test the binary fairly simple on TinyCore? Main reason to keep it al small is because of PXE boot, and boot times (critical). Thanks! (HowTos)
