My main interest now is a backend for Y. It has an integrated window manager. It uses fbdev. If there was a portable window manager in gnustep i could go straight to porting apps.

If you want to use Y instead of X11, you'll have to write a backend
anyway or contact Chad (?) and see how he's doing with his DirectFB
thingy.


Im going to write a backend for Y because DirectFB wants to become more than a library.

Chad seems to be busy putting together packages for simplygnustep. Im trying to complement his work by building a stripped down distro optimised for gnustep. I have barely started though. I have only gone as far as bootstrap gnustep-make on a uclibc/busybox system. I used simpleinit from uil-linux. Its just a base development system now optimised for building ctools. Its a great to be free from autoconf at last.

No graphics at all. It might be worthwhile to build x for now but i want to have a non-x gui as a target.
