Re: ggi debs for testing
I did built libgii/libggi/svgalib4ggi rpms a week ago (under glibc1.99)
ggi apps run fine under X, dga support seems broken though.
Under fb they work BUT resolution changes result in invalid scan range
from my monitor, if you are already in the right res ggi programs run
fine. i spend a few hours playing heretic/doom in the console using
both ggi and svga/ggi with no problems.
