RTEMS and video support

Hi Indy,
If you ever solve the problem with the missing X11 support for using nxlib to build fltk, could you please let me know?
Currently I am working on other application problems but earlier or later (rather later) I will have to look into a GUI for RTEMS applications.

Kind regards

Thanks Gedare.

I already checked that and the paragraph below tells me that there is no support really:
"The following packages are included but not currently ported:"

• mmap_kit - our own invention to provide things needed by svgalib before these are merged into RTEM
• svgalib - (1.4.3)
• fltk - (1.1.10)
We need nxlib from Microwindows to build fltk. This will require us creating a small kit of X11 .h files and fonts so nxlib will build and run. Then fltk should just build and work."

I'm not personally familiar, but I think the Graphics Toolkit [1] had
some work that applies to video, and I think the Milkymist folks have
done some work with a framebuffer but I don't know the details. There
is some framebuffer support under cpukit/libmisc/fb

Good luck!
