    Default How do I install svgalib?

    I was hoping someone could help me install the svgalib files that I have here.

    Code:
     60K -rwxrwxrwx 1 metroid users  54K Dec  5  1973 libvgagl.so
     60K -rwxrwxrwx 1 metroid users  54K Dec  5  1973 libvgagl.so.1
     60K -rwxr-xr-x 1 metroid users  54K Dec  5  1973 libvgagl.so.1.4.3
    332K -rwxrwxrwx 1 metroid users 327K Dec  5  1973 libvga.so
    332K -rwxrwxrwx 1 metroid users 327K Dec  5  1973 libvga.so.1
    332K -rwxr-xr-x 1 metroid users 327K Dec  5  1973 libvga.so.1.4.3

    Hi
    That's a pretty old library (circa 2004). Why not just rebuild from
    source or a src rpm?

    What are you trying to run with them, I would have thought the later
    kernel drivers would suffice?

    Might be useful to know what version of openSUSE you're using. Chances
    are there's a package already built.

    I'm using suse 12.1 and i'm not even sure if I need that package now. I was looking for a library that will draw pixels to a tty terminal in C. I'm currently making a program with SDL but it must be run in an X environment, it won't run from tty2. I was using ncurses and it's fun but there is no mouse in a tty environment hence the mouse event features are defunct. Someone suggested writing straight to the graphics hardware but theres no manual for that and I can't find a library that will carry out my orders simular to, drawpixel(0, 0, r, g, b. a) or drawrectangle(0, 0, 25, 25, r, g, b, a) or even drawimage(0, 0, "image.png").

    I have never used it, but I was told that xine could output to the
    consoles, using frambuffer (-V fb).

    I have never done any programming myself with the framebuffer, but found
    this http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Framebuffer-HOWTO/

    There is a mouse in console mode in my setup.

    It used to be that sysconfig needed to be configured to have the mouse
    but In 12.1 the option in yast is greyed out, but the mouse works anyway.

    Yes, that will be gpm; that mouse is used to do copy/paste, but the buttons
    are not functional to select menus and such.
