I hope it is possible. This is an area that's really confusing. This
gets back to the issue of - just what is it that the Distribution
Builder does exactly? Maybe the Metacard distribution builder sheds
light on this.
On Linux, and I'm sure BSD is the same way, when running a standalone
from the commandline I get
./appname: Can't open display
This means the standalone demands to be an X Windows GUI program and
won't proceed unless the user is running X, and the $DISPLAY can be
As for why the revolution engine itself doesn't have this limitation-
that is the mystery I guess.
