Projects / XGGI


XGGI is a partly accelerated and fully multihead-capable X server which uses LibGGI to do hardware-independent graphics and input. It supports 8, 15, 16, 24, and 32 bit modes on any LibGGI target that has a pixellinear DirectBuffer, and should run in any resolution the target can support. XGGI has been successfully tested on the X, fbdev, svga, DGA, lcd823, and tile targets.

      Release Notes: This is a long-due maintenance release of XGGI 1.6. It now uses XFree 3.3.6 as its base. It doesn't try to open a new VT by default when running on a console-based target (this used to cause problems when running XGGI without any root privileges). Italian, Polish, and Norwegian keymaps have been added. Save and restore can now be done with all screens in a multihead configuration upon VT switching.

        Release Notes: This is a minor bugfix release with some keyboard updates, support for the -bpp commandline option for XFree compability, and experimental support for 1bpp (mono) modes. LibGGI 2.0beta2.1 is recommended as it contains major improvements for the fbdev and svga targets as well as some keyboard fixes.
