Journal JonnyRo88's Journal: Adventures in DirectFB

I had an interesting morning working with XdirectFB from http://www.directfb.org in Gentoo Linux. I finally managed to get X to load properly only by symlinking /usr/X11R6/bin/X to /usr/X11R6/bin/XDirectFB, using the default startxdfb script wasnt working for me. Oh well.

Unfortunatly XFCE4 was acting very wierd in this new environment, causing the screen to go black whenever I tried to resize a window. It was also impossible to move a window.

I put it aside for a little while so that I can fix vmware after my recent kernel upgrade to 2.6 on the laptop. It is important that I get this working because I use vmware to write programs for windows that are used at work.
