hey guys.

i have installed a version of debian in my laptop besides windows xp.

i login in command line (without starting the X).

i'm trying to run prboom from there without starting the X server

(for my own reasons :blink: ) and here is the error i get:

=======================| DirectFB 1.0.1 |=======================

prboom v2.5.0 (http://prboom.sourceforge.net/)

I_SetAffinityMask: manual affinity mask is 1

Could not initialize SDL [DirectFBCreate: Initialization error!]

any ideas how to solve this ?

i get the same error while trying to run stella atari 2600 emulator

from command line. if i start X it runs ok.

sorry for my bad english :rolleyes::blink:

fsck,

the easy solution was to start debian with vga=773 in grub menu.lst

it starts with larger screen and prboom works fine :blink:

i tried to change screen resolution while i was in the simple text mode.

i had a strange feeling that my monitor will explode :rolleyes:

first install the fbset.

aptitude install fbset

then load the module for my vaio laptop

modprobe intelfb

a new file is created /etc/fb.modes with screen modes

grep ^mode /etc/fb.modes :

mode "640x480-60"

mode "640x480-72"

mode "640x480-75"

mode "640x480-90"

mode "640x480-100"

mode "768x576-75"

mode "800x600-48-lace"

mode "800x600-56"

mode "800x600-60"

mode "800x600-70"

mode "800x600-72"

mode "800x600-75"

mode "800x600-90"

mode "800x600-100"

mode "1024x768-43-lace"

mode "1024x768-60"

mode "1024x768-70"

mode "1024x768-72"

mode "1024x768-75"

mode "1024x768-90"

mode "1024x768-100"

mode "1152x864-43-lace"

mode "1152x864-47-lace"

mode "1152x864-60"

mode "1152x864-70"

mode "1152x864-75"

mode "1152x864-80"

mode "1280x1024-43-lace"

mode "1280x1024-47-lace"

mode "1280x1024-60"

mode "1280x1024-70"

mode "1280x1024-74"

mode "1280x1024-75"

mode "1600x1200-60"

mode "1600x1200-66"

mode "1600x1200-76"

fbset 640x480-60

open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory

i googled this and and then try to install the makedev package.

debian's udev (something like that) didn't let makedev to be installed.

another day i'll try to figure this out.

for now: vga=773 :P
