bg_test(6)                    Svgalib User Manual                   bg_test(6)

NAME
       bg_test - test the background mode of svgalib

SYNOPSIS
       bg_test [linear]

DESCRIPTION
       Tests the enhanced support of recent svgalibs to draw while switched to
       the background. Draws a small centered white box then waits until you
       switch to another vc. Draws some outer box frame around it while
       background, which you can see when you switch back to it. For obvious
       reasons, your version of svgalib must have BACKGROUND support enabled
       (which is the default as of this writing).  When finished, press any
       key to end bg_test.

       The demo uses a G320x200x256 mode or the one you set with
       SVGALIB_DEFAULT_MODE.

       If you specify the linear parameter the demo will use vgagl(7) and
       vga_setlinearaddressing(3) to test linear mode in background.

       This demo is part of svgalib and can be found in the demos/
       subdirectory of the original svgalib distribution. However, it is not
       installed in the system by default, s.t. it is unclear where you can
       find it if your svgalib was installed by some linux distribution. Even
       then, when you have the demo on your system, you probably won't have
       the sources s.t. it is only of limited use for you.

       In case of any such problem, simply get an svgalib distribution from
       the net. You even don't need to install it. Just make in the demos/
       subdirecty. As of this writing, svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz is the latest
       version and can be retrieved by ftp from sunsite.unc.edu at
       /pub/Linux/libs/graphics and tsx-11.mit.edu at /pub/linux/sources/libs
       which will most probably be mirrored by a site close to you.
