Being linux newbie i'd like hints and suggestions but examples or actual code are welcome.
I need to set the video mode to 800x600x16bpp (or 32, or 24 or 8 if it is such a hopeless quest)
Even a X11 window could be fine (but then i have to find a way to control the keyboard and the mouse...)
I tried ALLEGRO and SDL with discouraging results.
I'll try again to use the latest SDL.

Luckily that's not my case.
I should be able to complete all the graphics for a *playable* game alone.
