Using Win10, Cygwin, GCC 7, SDL 2.0.7 (as provided by Cygwin)
Trying to get the dead simplest Hello program to work (from http://lazyfoo.net/tutorials/SDL/01_hello_SDL/index2.php) but it does not go. On startup I get this enigmatic error from SDL_Init: “No available video device”.
For fun I also tried a previous Hello for SDL 1.2 and got similar results, so it’s not specific to v2.
I did grab a copy of the 2.0.9 source to try, but couldn’t get past the configure script. My gcc doesn’t make Win32 binaries it seems.
I might be missing something obvious, I’m still very much an SDL noob. Googling the error brings up a lot about Linux and X but no help for Windows.
