    why isnt anyone answering???

     
    • You can run CoLinux without X but you will be missing a large number of apps. If you just mean to run compilations, crontabs, network apps, etc. without GUI, go for it.

    i meant would X without winpcap and tap-win32

    "without it" means "without winpcap and tap-win32"

    add the word "run" after "would X"

     
  • X without a network link back to the PC does not make much sense. You need to have an X server running under Windows and the only way to have Linux talk to this server is through winpcap/tap-win32. The display is controlled by Windows, Linux only runs the application.

    I've tried successfully CygWin/X. xeyes worked like a charm. I guess you can do more ;-)
