Add DGA and GGI support for Linux
DGA yep, GGI…hmmmm…
I checked out the GGI web page, and it looks ‘respectable’.
The main thing being the lack of a need of root privs.
OpenGL integration so this library is useful for 3D as well. :)
Is this a good idea? 3D and 2D are really quite different in their
I think that Mesa handles the GL part quite well, and is already very
Leave the 3D to Mesa, and the 2D stuff to SDL.
As in audio playback? There’s plenty of code around to do this, perhaps
you should make this a separate library?
The Linux system calls for cdrom control are so easy to implement that
it’s not even an effort to do so.
But, accessing the data on a CD while playing audio tracks will get
tricky, and it would be nice to have a library that figures out what to
do, rather than relying on the OS’s implementation of it.
Cool! Might be a good idea to look at the various other attempts at this,
cos it seems very hard to get ‘right’->DirectInput, InputSprockets etc…
Might not be necessary for Linux, from looking at the Maelstrom source,
Sam might not have to go far to find an implementation
As for Win95, it actually has Joystick/Gamepad drivers in it, so there HAS
to be a library that handles it…
I’m not too sure about BeOS. (I haven’t even seen it yet
Although, the problem with Joystick/Gamepad support is that it is VERY
architechture dependant (not OS dependant), as you won’t find a Joystick
for the i386 that will work on a Mac (m68k/ppc).
