Xen + SDL
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 12, 2013
I'm trying to get a basic Xen setup using SDL under Ubuntu 13.04 (64-bit). I don't need remote access, I severely dislike the lag and tearing caused by VNC, so I'm trying to get SDL working. I have my virtual machine working and booting under VNC, but whenever I try and enable SDL I get the following error:
libxl: error: libxl_dm.c:1212:device_model_spawn_outcome: domain 2 device model: spawn failed (rc=-3)
Checking the qemu log file, I can also see this error
/usr/lib/xen-4.2/bin/qemu-dm: invalid option -- '-sdl'
Now, looking up this error, it seems that the problem is that the version of xen tools that come with Ubuntu have been compiled without support for SDL... I've heard that one solution is to download and recompile Xen tools from source, but I'm in a bit at the deep end here as I've no real experience of compiling from source. Couldn't they just release binaries with SDL support? Would someone with more experience compiling be able to compile and
Ubuntu Karmic vs Redhat 5.4 as Xen dom0
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 3, 2010
I'm looking to consolidate a couple of windows boxes and some linux machines on to one piece of hardware using Xen.
I investigated using Karmic, but when I started reading the docs I was a little dismayed to learn you need to bring over a Debian kernel with Xen support. Should I be using Hardy for a production Xen server?
RHEL 5.4 has a Xen kernel on the cd. I prefer a more open distro but should I be considering Redhat? I know this is an Ubuntu forum but I expect to get unbiased answers!

HOWTO: Setting Up SDL for Beginners in Games Development
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 22, 2006
NOTE: This how to assumes you have already installed build-essential and g++ etc, and that you know how to program in C++. This is not C/C++ tutorial BTW.
Welcome to the first in hopfully many Ubuntu games development HOWTO's. This first one will cover how to setup Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL), which is a excellent starting point for anyone wanting to get into Games development on the Ubuntu/Linux.
The first thing you need is to install the SDL libraries as well as the development libraries.
So open up your favourite package manager and search for SDL; this should list all the SDL support/development libraries. Now all you need to do is select the following:
If your doing OpenGL stuff you will also need:
Now you can click 'Apply' and the package manager will download a
3DGames on Windows in XEN

having a VT processor I am wondering if it is possible to not have Dual boot for Windows Games but to run Windows inside XEN and giving it full access to the GFX card?
I would think of switching the GFX card access when starting the Guest-Windows and then somehow maybe starting a script running in the host by ssh from the guest to suspend the Guest and give the Host back control to the GFX Card.
Has anyone done this or an Idea, this would be really cool?
KVM or Xen for GPU passthrough?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 26, 2012
For years I've used VirtualBox to successfully run XP and Vista clients on my Ubuntu box, and am considering taking the next step to either Qemu/KVM or Xen. Have always toyed with the idea, but never made the switch because VirtualBox is so easy to use whereas KVM has always suffered from the typical Linux obscurity/learning curve. Reason: AFAIK VirtualBox is a type 2 virtualizer which runs on ring 1 whereas KVM and Xen are type 1 virtualizers running on ring 0. This allows KVM and Xen to at least theoretically pass through PCI devices to the virtualized client, thus bypassing the translation layer that type 2 virtualizers like VirtualBox must use. At least, this is what I've been able to gather from Wikipedia and some research on the net. I may be totally off base here and spouting meaningless nonsense.
My goal is to pass through client video demands to physical hardware rather than the emulated virtual graphics adapter. I understand that Xen now does this (with a lot of blood, swe

SDL Programming using g++ in ubuntu 10.04 64Bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 26, 2013
I just want to know how to install libraries in my own directory not in /usr/local/lib and link them with my program. As when I use apt-get to install then everything works fine but when I install libraries manually then there are host of errors some time SDL is not able to init as Video device is not there then I installed 32 bit libraries done everything posted on internet but could not solve it. Shockingly everything was working fine some days back and today I was not able to init. I know apt-get resolves lots of dependency do many tasks behind the scene but if I am migrated to some other OS I should know how to install library from source and able to resolve issues.
Today I re-installed everything from source but still not able to init SDL but it was working some days back, then I re installed from apt-get everything works fine.
Please help in installing libraries from source, you can take SDL example and tell me how to link it to your source no matter where I install them us
