[directfb-users] Re: OT: fbset modeline for PAL TV anyone



Ok, I didn't realize that I don't need a modeline with XDirectFB. That's
even better. However, I think I still need to find a working modeline,
since unfortunately not all the applications that I want to try out in
my living room are "directfb enabled [TM]". So I'll go and check the
modelines found in mplayer. Even still if anybody has a particularly
good one easily available, I wouldn't mind ;)

On a related note, it seems I need directfb from cvs if I want to use
XdirectFB from cvs right? I get a following error trying to compile the
cvs version of XdirectFB with directfb-0.9.20:
