Description Patrice Dumas 2006-06-23 08:20:35 EDT
Description of problem:

I get the following when running uqm on devel:
[dumas@localhost ~]$ uqm
The Ur-Quan Masters v0.5.0 (compiled Feb 15 2006 15:07:41)
This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY;
for details see the included 'COPYING' file.

Initializing base SDL functionality.
Using SDL version 1.2.10 (compiled with 1.2.9)
Could not initialize SDL: No available video device.

Maybe this is caused by the difference in SDL versions uqm is 
built against. Even though it is not the reason I guess it should 
be rebuilt.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I've rebuilt it with 1.2.10, but the result is the same:

Initializing base SDL functionality.
Using SDL version 1.2.10 (compiled with 1.2.10)
Could not initialize SDL: No available video device.

I'm pretty sure at this point that the bug is in SDL, not in uqm. Will set
accordingly.

I get this problem with SDL-1.2.10-2.i386.rpm and stellarium.

If I revert back to earlier versions of SDL, including SDL-1.2.10-1.i386.rpm and
1.2.9, stellarium runs OK.

The last few lines of strace:

open("/dev/fb0", O_RDWR)                = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/dev/fb/0", O_RDWR)               = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
write(2, "Error: unable to open SDL with a"..., 64Error: unable to open SDL with
audio: No available video device
) = 64
open("/dev/fb0", O_RDWR)                = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/dev/fb/0", O_RDWR)               = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

SDL-1.2.10-2 is 25% smaller than SDL-1.2.10-2 (178965 vs 237668).  This is from
a changelog entry which states "added missing (build) requires for GL and GLU".

Did it not build correctly?
Comment 4 Paul Dickson 2006-06-25 04:29:08 EDT
Make the previous comment:
  SDL-1.2.10-2 is 25% smaller than SDL-1.2.10-1 (178965 vs 237668).
