Hey, i''m kinda new to linux, just wonderinga few things.. 1) is it possible to get full screen access under linux? are there any Linux interrupts i can use to do this? or do all games have to be under Xwindows? anyhow, i''m kinda confused with this. Linux seems like the old dos/win3.11 mix, where you have the command line interface + a GUI. but how do you go about making games under Linux?

Well I haven''t coded any games yet. I am still new to this world of games but I have coded a lot in linux. Well to answer your question doom in linux doesn''t need X-Windows at all. I don''t think Quake does either.
Probably you can make use of the svgalib for coding and yes dos interrupts int 10h etc won''t work , you have to use the int 80h and 32 bit registers eax,ebx,cro etc.
