New files in patch

patch -p0 < ../libsdl-1.2-patch > /dev/null gives us only new files


Patching

tar xvzf libsdl-1.2.tgz && zcat libsdl-1.2-patch.gz | patch -p0

Compiling

Currently this fails to compile due to missing Piranha headers:

SDL Extensions on Pre

SDL_Image
SDL_TTF

SDL Nuances

- Only supports SDSURFACE and ..
- Does not support Double Buffering = SDL_Flip
- SDL_Image did not appear to handle PNG files correctly (zonyl)
- SDL_GetTicks on Pixi WebOS 1.4.5 (at least), occasionally returns values in the past. This isn't really SDL's fault, but software using SDL_GetTicks may need to take this into account.

SDL Applications

SDL_vnc

If SDL_vnc works, would be a way of running arbitrary X11 applications on the Palm Pre: SDL_vnc

Update: This has now been done; see Application:SdlVNC :-)

SDL Terminal

A pseudo-ansi SDL terminal (or console) library - sdl-terminal
