Check out SDL or openGL. This is not a trivial task.

There are a number of libraries that can output to fb, as long as they are compiled with that feature. The most relevant options are probably libSDL and Allegro. I'd choose SDL over anything else because it makes porting to other environments trivial, and because it's well supported and broadly used.
