Hello all,

I recently wrote an SDL front-end to xmame which uses the SDL_ttf library. Now 
this thing compiles and runs fine on my computer, and I've also heard from 
other users that it's working fine on theirs. One of the new users however 
told me that on his RedHat system (I'm using SuSE 8.2 myself) the program 
tells him it is incapable of rendering the text (an error message I put in in 
case TTF_RenderText_Solid comes back with NULL). I don't know which version 
he's using of SDL_ttf, but he's tried FreeType 2.4 and 2.5 sofar. Any 
thoughts what might be causing this problem or how I might find out what is?
