found some code to work with framebuffer on linux (/dev/fb)

but im stuck at changing video modes and etc... its not as easy as i
thought (you cant just say "i want 800x600")

and pixel manipulating is similar to the old DOS/Vesa1.2 ways...

im checking your code for the low level core routines, if you are
interested i found code about linuxfb here :

(im not the author)

if you manage to make fpGUI usable for framebuffer devices you will
win a nice niche (Small console applications or even hand held like
devices where X server is overkill)

i want to enhace my current programs (they use text menus, with readln
and similar ugly things) without having to resort to XOrg (its hard to
place a xserver on a routerboard).

i will keep investigating...
