I’ve been asked to design some software for a friends x86 based project and I’m seriously thinking about using Xojo instead of C++ or Python. I’m going to take a small Linux distro, maybe Puppy or DSL, remove the desktop packages, and just run a bare bones non-gui based system. But I’m wondering: what packages are required on Linux for a console app to run? Certainly, I don’t imagine the GTK stuff would need to be there since there’s no GUI but are there any gotchas I need to be aware of?
If the OS is 64-bit, you’ll need the 32-bit compatibility Libs.

Make sure the OS you choose is compatible with something we support.
