I noticed that the version of SDL2 statically linked to the Linux build only has the X11 driver enabled.
Is there a plan to get future build with DirectFB enabled, that should be possible by passing --enable-video-directfb to ./configure and statically linking to DirectFB?
Alternatively a dynamically linked Debian package would allow users to run pico-8 against their own SDL and specify the video driver using SDL_VIDEODRIVER env var.
Thanks in advance.
I think This was left a while ago, and I saw that in recent Linux builds we have pico8_dyn executable. So far I haven't figured out a way to run it using directfb. Is there a command line argument to run it? Or do I need to configure sdl lib to prefer directfb in some way ?
this looks promising maybe?: https://github.com/zielmicha/SDL2/blob/master/README.DirectFB
but apparently it's kind of old
It looks like the support for DirectFB is still there though: https://discourse.libsdl.org/t/is-anyone-using-directfb/22616/3
So just a compilation flag that needs to be enabled when you compile SDL2?
