Kernel : linux-2.6.27.4
Distrib: Linux From Scratch 6.4

Using Pentium4 3.0GHz (prescott) with intel 82865G graphics and IBM thinkvision monitor. Using GGI 2.2.2 (downloaded the bundle from main website).

When trying to play a video with mplayer using GGI with no x-windows installed, the video plays fine, however when exiting the video, the console disappears and it seems as if there is no signal to the monitor because the monitor goes to standby. The video will also freeze when trying to adjust the sound or anything else.

Discussion

  • Never mind on this it turns out that GGI exits correctly but only when pressing the 9 key. This is still very strange however because 9 is a sound control key on mplayer, and directfb works fine with 9 being a sound control key and esc being the exit key.
