Ubuntu 10.10 and directfb

I’ve had many new gray hairs due the directfb. My first experience was with Fedora Core 3, which was quite ok to configure. After that, I’ve tried a newer Fedora, Gentoo and today, the Ubuntu – all were extremely painful and I have not succeeded to have stock directfb working.

The current Ubuntu had 1.2 series directfb and I used the old configuration from my original FC 3, no luck. After manually compiling the directfb 1.0, the picture instantly appeared.

I wonder what is so different with the current directfb versions. Oh, in case it matters, I’m using Matrox G450 for TV-output.
