Can anyone tell me how to use directfb in VMWARE? I
use windows 2k pro as a host os, and installed redhat9.0 as the guest os. It
seems the vesafb runs well before I install directfb. If I run any
example(directfb-0.9.18 & directfb-examples-0.9.18), it just show me some
error. So I searched the maillist to find some cue. As a result I use the
vmwarefb-0.6.0-linux-2.4.20.patch, patch the kernel, then recompile(with the
vmware fb SVGA on). But the thing's getting worse. I cann't boot at all. Then I
add "video=vmware:noaccel" to lilo.conf. This time, it's better. When
booting, I saw big misty characters. But anyway it's not very good.
So I give up and turn to you. Thank you in advance.
