I finally did get it to compile by changing the CFLAGS and LDFLAGS, I found these from a site on the net.<br><br>CFLAGS = -D__PIC__ -fpic -msingle-pic-base<br>LDFLAGS = -Wl,-elf2flt<br><br>I think the reason it didn't down libjpeg from cvs was the because the snapshot I got from the wiki didn't have it so it didn't grab it. I had the romfs section wrong, I didn't have the /bin/ part.
<br><br>The problem is now that it just gives me a blank screen but I just noticed that it says it is only compatible with the "usual VGA graphics modes<br> only, i.e. packed pixels with 8 bpp pseudocolor and 16/24/32 bpp truecolor/directcolor"
<br><br>I can see from fbset that the frame buffer is 256x192 but what color mode is it?<br><br>I will have to do some debugging to find out where it is dieing.<br><br>Thanks,<br>Patrick<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">
