Does it work if you go edit /etc/vga/libvga.config and comment out the line;
"Helper /dev/svga" and uncomment the line "NoHelper"?
If you are using modesetting with your graphics card, you will not have /dev/svga, instead you would direct your programs to use /dev/fb0. The other option is to disable kernel video modesetting at boot and use vesa for console graphics and /dev/svga should then be available for use.

Hi, I'm wondering if I'm fundamentally misunderstanding something.
After running "makepkg -fi" and then rebooting, /dev/svga still does not exist, and the module svga_helper does not exist either, making me unable to run svgalib games in Linux. Is that included in this package?

I don't know how usable this package is on a per user basis, yet it does compile now by using the quickmath patch from Fedora. Please let me know what issues you face so that I might possibly be able to find a solution. Regards

I don't know how to fix it and svgalib hasn't been updated since 2006, I'm disowning it in case anyone else can fix it

Anyone else get this error? Perhaps not compatible with 4.x kernel, or..?
