    Is it possible to compile Firefox so that it can run without X? I am
    setting up a kiosk type machine and would like to make it as lean as
    possible and was thinking that if I could skip installing X it would be
    sweet. Can Firefox, (if compiled with some special flags or whatever),
    render without X installed?

    Thanks

    Maybe... But where is it supposed to _display_ the result?

    Sorry, I'm afraid I don't understand your needs.
