Re: [linrad] SVGALIB 1.9.18 Compiled but does not start
Leif's suggestion will work.
an alternative detailed method:
look to find where the svgalib_helper file is:
find / |grep -i svgalib_helper.o
This found 2 addresses in my file system.
Then use insmod (similar to modprobe) to connect it:
/sbin/insmod < to either of the files found. >
Using this method requires me to insmod the file every time I restart
Any idea what the permanent solution is ?
