Yes, understood. But let me explain my project to you :

My project consits to write a program witch will work like a Linux graphic application but it must be cross-platform (Linux, Zaurus and Linux based mobile phone).
It's a Linux graphic application so it must work when Window Manager turned on :(
It's cross-platform, so it must based on Framebuffer.

And this is a big problem to me.

Can i have your suggestion about it ?

Thanks so much,

Bui Sy Phong

There's an ioctl to switch the console to KD_GRAPHICS mode. If you do that, no
more text will be printed by the console driver.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
