Re: [linrad] SVGALIB 1.9.18 Compiled but does not start

Hello Chris,

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 
suse 9.0

Any idea what the permanent solution is  ?
