Re: [linrad] svgalib

Svgalib is different from Xwindow (linux GUI).  Just because X works 
doesn't mean that linrad (or any program that uses svgalib to display 
graphics) will work.  I don't see RealTek 3105 listed as supported by 
svgalib-1.4.3.  It seems that svgalib is the factor most limiting linrad 
at this point, I.E. some (many?) people have configuration problems, some 
(much?) hardware isn't supported, but VESA mode usually helps.
