Hi everyone, I need a little help. I have designed a C++ Linux project to run on a ARM-9e embedded platform which includes the SDL library for graphics. I am having problems however being able to get my SDL drivers to shut down without actually exiting my program. For instance, I can't fork a new process because the drivers hang up my system. What I really want to do is have four concurrent processes running and use interprocess communication to send data between them however to do this the SDL drivers have to be able to shut down when a new process takes control. If you have any experience in this area I would really appreciate hearing about it. Thanks in advance for your help!!! JimB
