Hello again. I am running into a little problem with SDL. I create a SDL/OpenGL window just fine. The problem occurs when I press the windows key on my keyboard to minimize it and then click it in the taskbar to bring it back up. When I restore the window I get a flickering problem with just a black background and white lines across and empty lines where I can still see my desktop. The flickering is out of control. Here is the code I am using to create my window...
SDL_SetVideoMode(1280,1024,32, SDL_OPENGL | SDL_FULLSCREEN)
Any ideas why it is doing this? Thanks

Sounds like a refresh problem. Have you enabled double buffering?

SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER, 1);

then at the end of the draw loop call SDL_GL_SwapBuffers(); to swap them.
