problems running the Directfb demon


hi, running mdk 9.0, kde 3, downloaded DirectFB-0.9.0.tar.gz from www.directfb.org (the reason i get that is because mplayer doc say would be good to have)

compiled (./configure, make, make install), got all it was asked for, doesn't look like there's error. try to see if the program runs, when i do df_porter, blank screen for a sec, then got this msg:


(!) DirectFB/core/fbdev: Couldn't open neither `/dev/fb0' nor `/dev/fb/0'!
--> No such file or directory
(!) DirectFB/Core: Error during initialization: fbdev_open()
df_porter.c <63>:
(#) DirectFBError [DirectFBCreate( &argc, &argv, &dfb )]: General initialization failure!

when i do: df_fire, blank scren, then got the same msg, except no df_port.c <63>.....

pretty much non of the demon that i try works, i don't think the demon is not working, i think its either i didn't compile right, or there's something i done wrong.

here's the ./configure i'm showing:

The ./configure seems ok - what are the final messages you see after 'make'?
