[gobolinux-users] newbie gobolinux user: SDL framebuffer +

hello gobo people,
i'm new to Gobo, but love it so far (sits nicely alongside MEPIS, :P)
and one thing i was wondering is how hard would it be to set up Gobo
so that it supports SDL on the Framebuffer/console - i.e. not through
X, but through the FB interface? i have some simple apps that i'd
like to port to SDL, but i don't want all the overhead of X .. is
this feasible? are there any packages in Gobo which do this
already, say "Abuse_SDL" or something? (able to be run from console
the other question i have for gobo people, is if anyone has gotten
MidiShare set up for it yet? MidiShare is like "MIDI, the non-ALSA"
way, and is in my opinion a far better API for MIDI than ALSA is ..
MidiShare consists of a kernel module and set of libs, for linux
2.4.x-series kernels (a 2.6.x port is under way).
i'd be very interested in knowing about what it would take to get
SDL/Framebuffer and MidiShare working under Gobo .. if anyone has
anything to say about this, please let me know ...
