[directfb-users] Re: How to make the DirectFB on top CLE266 work

Thank you very much, Sven and Andreas.

Following the hints you gave, I found the problem.
When I built the kernel, I chose the option -- Do not mount devfs at the
boot time, so DirectFB can not find the device file of the CLE266
graphic chip.
Now after I rebuilt the kernel and tried 'dfbinfo', the result shows VIA
CLE266 Overlay works.
viapvr:~# dfbinfo

(*) Single Application Core. (with MMX support) (2003-11-15 01:24)
(*) DirectFB/misc/memcpy: using MMXEXT optimized memcpy()
(*) DirectFB/InputDevice: Keyboard 0.9 (convergence integrated media GmbH)
(*) MMX detected and enabled
(*) DirectFB/GraphicsDevice: VIA/S3G UniChrome 0.3 (-)
(*) DirectFB/Layer: Enabled 'FBDev Primary Layer'.

Display Layers

(00) FBDev Primary Layer (primary layer)
Type: graphics
Caps: brightness contrast saturation surface

(01) VIA CLE266 Overlay
Type: graphics picture video
Caps: opacity screen_location surface

Input Devices

(00) Keyboard (primary keyboard)
Type: keyboard
Caps: keys

However I still cannot run 'df_layer' properly, so how can I check the
DirectFB graphics driver module is loaded?
