Dear all,

If INX plan to be installable for next releases, a GUI login would be
very attractive I think.

I have manage to install below GUI login on LFS, without X offcourse
(using DirectFB):


A Qingy image 	qingy is a replacement for getty. Written in C, it uses
DirectFB to provide a fast, nice GUI without the overhead of the X
Windows System. It allows the user to log in and start the session of
his choice (text console, gnome, kde, wmaker, ...).

Some screenshoot of the login windows:


I thought it would be a "nice to have" and surprise people how good
"without X" could be.

I tried to compile firefox without X (use DirectFB), but so far no success.
