I’m trying to track down what to me seems like an odd interaction issue.
The test I’m using is mplayer (however any pygame.py will give the same
DrPepper driver # env | grep SDL
DrPepper driver # mplayer -vo sdl /dev/video0
MPlayer 1.0pre3-3.3.2 © 2000-2003 MPlayer Team
VO: [sdl] 720x480 => 720x540 Planar YV12
SDL: Couldn’t get any acceptable SDL Mode for output.
FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.
Works fine for /dev/fb0 (main video card).
The /dev/fb1 because mplayer accepts it with -vo fbdev
(FRAMEBUFFER="/dev/fb1" mplayer -vo fbdev /dev/video0) works perfectly.
Also X’s fbdev works fine. So the problem for what I can tell may be
localized in SDL.
