Is such a thing possible... a gui window manager w/out (x11/Mesa) dependency or "toolkit" (Gtk is optional) :%)

Source is @ https://www.oroborus.org/

This package has not been adopted yet by (slackonly) or...

@n0ctilucient
What would you say if I give you a scalped qt5-5.9.2 module down to 19 Mb (instead of 91 Mb)? And it works!

You are not developing for the Qt company or what?

Cheers!

@wread, what if I told you that the next LXQt module for Porteus takes just 25 MB, including Qt 5.9.2, GTK3, audio player, networkmanager applet, Transmission-Qt, EPDFView, Engrampa, etc? :)

Finally... the race to beat Tiny Core Linux @ their own game begins :worthy:

I've been waiting 3yrs for this ;)

I would say... "sounds like a plan" if the DE module included "Unetbootin" w/syslinux.
(I like the idea of letting gParted determine my flash install scheme).

Have you guys "considered" this?... @ https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/embedded-linux.html
