SVGALib Segmentation Fault

Hi all,

I'm having a problem, I'd like to use console image viewers and suchlike, but any software that uses SVGALib (as well as the svgalib tests) crashes out when I try to start it. Commonly the error message says "Segmentation Fault" and nothing else.

I tried setting the SVGALIB_DEFAULT_MODE environment variable to G800x600x256 (My video chipset is a Chips & Technologies 65500)

I also downloaded, compiled, and installed SVGALib 1.4.3, but it made no difference whatsoever.

I'm running Slackware 9 on a Toshiba 420CDT laptop, my console is in framebuffer mode (vga = 771 in lilo.conf) and that works just fine. I also have no problems in X.

Can anyone suggest something? I'm at the end of my rope.
