Hello,

I am working on removing most of windowing code from the VM, and in trying to unify the platform specific code of the VM. In the MinimalistHeadless branch of https://github.com/ronsaldo/opensmalltalk-vm I made the following changes:

Fantastic, except:


- Unified standard CMake building scripts for Unixes. I hate autoconf. I want to use them in Windows too.

We have agreed that we will use makefiles and restrict make to generating platform config.h files that define platform facilities.  I have very good reasons for doing this.  I have discussed this at length this year.  Please don't make me argue this all over again.  Are you on board?  Would you like to discuss this on skype or somewhere?

Does it make sense, to always trying to create a display in startup time?

Good question.  The answer should be "no" but that only makes sense if the system is written to not depend on a display when in headless mode.


Best regards,
