Thank you for your reply.

By the way, I have the following (if applicable):

kernel: 2.6.18
ATI Radeon 9800 with fglrx driver 8.30.3

Please see below...

What was the DirectDraw error?

Message window:

DirectDraw does not support the requested mode.
in D:\Projects\gsi\dd.cpp - Line 455

In the terminal:

Where did you get this patch?

I got the patch from this link:


The problem is similiar to what problem I was having with the mouse (although, it did not seem to have solved the problem).

Submitting this app to AppDB and submitting a bug report might help.
It would also help to have a demo of this application.

If you can not think of anything, then I will do so.
