Sh: DISPLAY=:0v

Hi, I’ve made a mistake, when I was trying to build SDL from source, I
did a command on the shell: " sh: DISPLAY=:0 ; export DISPLAY" I read it
on the FAQ to help install SDL. But now I can not run some games, and
some of then are very slow. How can I fix this and restore my
configuration?

I’m using Linux Debian and I have Ndivia drivers installed.

Thanks.

I don’t see how changing $DISPLAY can affect the speed or abiliy to run
games. You might have done something else to your setup (like installing
this new SDL, for example ?).

Look at this log, when I try to run American Army:

knoppix at katana:~/armyops$ ./armyops
Xlib: extension “XFree86-DRI” missing on display “:0.0”.
GL_EXT_bgra not supported - bailing out.

Exiting due to error--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was playing American Army fine, before I installed SDL.

Not having the dri extension isn’t related to changing your DISPLAY
variable. The system is complaining about dri (the 3D acceleration
support) not being present on :0.0 (":0.0" is your local display, so
that’s fine as it is). You probably messed with Xfree or the 3d drivers
to cause that problem.
Looking at the logfiles for XFree (/var/log/XFree86.*.log) might tell
you more about this.
