I'm writing a simple game in sdl under linux, but I have two basic problems:
1) the SDL_SetVideoMode() falis, unless the program is started from root 
account. The screen just fills with some strange pattetrn and 
SDL_GetError() returns "Unable to open a console terminal"
2)i can't manage to open a windowed video mode. no matter flags i use it 
always is fulscreen
