Welcome to Linux! If you are willing to go through the adventure of
learning linux in some detail you can certainly get svgalib up and
running under Mandrake 9.2. A little over a year ago I got it running
under Mandrake 9.0 I doubt it has changed much since then. I did not
have to monkey with the kernel at all.
Get the source code from http://svgalib.org/ and untar it. then use
make install to get it on your machine.
This sounds easy, but there will likely be some stumbling blocks for the
newbie, and there could be several hours of learning involved. If you
are ready for the adventure, by all means go for it. Once you know how
to build stuff from source it opens up a lot of avenues. You are not
left stuck waiting for someone to come up with an rpm for your
On the other hand, if your are in a hurry, $60 is not much to pay to
contribute to the Linux cause.
