Hello. I''m wondering if anybody''s had any experience with DirectFB, and whether it''s faster than an SDL/Mesa combo with X11 or at least as fast.

I''m really interested in DirectFB, but I haven''t tried it myself. If you are trying to use OpenGL, X will often be faster since it has more hardware support (DirectFB has none at the moment, as far as I know). Otherwise, for 2D graphics, it shouldn''t be slower than X. If you do play around with DirectFB, I''d be interested in hearing of your opinion of it (speed, ease of setup, or whatever you feel like talking about).
