First of all, the new fullscreen code is really amazing. This
may cause a revolution in xfree gaming :-)
Now for the bad news:
there seems a problem with the kwm windowmanager (I'm running KDE 1.1.2).
I can see parts of the SDL application window and send events to it,
causing all sorts of weird results. Hopefully this should be easy
Is nobody else on this list using KDE ??
Also, a non-overideable emergency-quit key sequence is absolutely necessary
for fbcon and nice for X as well (how do you nicely leave `testwm -fullscreen'
otherwise ?). Ctrl-Alt-End comes to my mind for this.
And a non-overidable "pause & iconify" emergency sequence (Ctrl-Alt-Esc ?)
could come handy as well.
Finally some compiler warnings:
SDL_fb3dfx.c: In function `FillHWRect':
SDL_fb3dfx.c:73: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
SDL_fb3dfx.c:83: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
SDL_fb3dfx.c: In function `HWAccelBlit':
SDL_fb3dfx.c:108: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
SDL_fb3dfx.c:111: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
SDL_fb3dfx.c:144: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
SDL_fb3dfx.c:146: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
P.S. I haven't dared to test the fb3fdx driver yet without an emergency-quit ;-)
