A package for use with BL3 and kernel 2.4.31, because zgv only works with
this kernel if it has libvga.so.1.4.3 (or later), not available
precompiled for libc5.
You can upgrade BL3 or BL2 with SW81 glibc 2.2.5 and use the SW81
libvga.so.1.4.3 and delilinux zgv.
For BL3 with kernel 2.2.26, use BL1 newzgv with SW4.0 svgalib.tgz.
For BL2 with kernel 2.2.16, use delinux zgv (if you can find it) with
I needed this package to make zgv work on one computer that will only boot
with kernel 2.4.31, and also used it on laptops with BL3. The kernel is
also needed for the USB camera, whence come the images to be viewed with
You will also need /etc/libvga.config which I forgot to include but is
available from any svgalib package. I think there is a minimalist version
in BL1, VGA only. If zgv is not working, try uncommenting chipset VESA
and if that does not work try chipset VGA. My matrox card requires VESA
and won't work with VGA, another card won't work with VESA.
