This library is designed to make it easy to write games that run on UNIX,
Win32 and BeOS using the various native high-performance media interfaces,
(for video, audio, etc) and presenting a single source-code level API to
your application.  This is a fairly low level API, but using this, completely
portable applications can be written with a great deal of flexibility.

Your SDL library has been built with libvgl support, which means that you
can run almost any SDL application straight on your console (VESA 2.0
compatible videocard is required).
To do this you have to load the vesa kernel module or enable it in your
kernel, and set environment variable "SDL_VIDEODRIVER=vgl".
