Hello, I'm working on a project of embedded Linux device. Dhe device will need a graphics mode. The board I'll use will probably have CS5530-based graphics adapter. I found that it's possible to run XFree86 on it (http://www.larwe.com/technical/geode_linux.html). However, I'd rather stay out of X due to performance and limited resources. I thought about using DirectFB. Anybody tried usin...
