[SDL] [PATCH] fix FB_VideoQuit for ia64
Jesse Barnes
Fri Jan 14 11:13:54 PST 2005

I noticed that on my ia64 machine when SDL_Quit was called, the machine would
hang in weird ways. It turned out to be caused by a machine check in the
memset() call near the top of FB_VideoQuit. Generally memset shouldn't be
used on I/O regions like the framebuffer or other I/O device memory (the
Linux kernel has special routines for dealing with I/O memory), so I changed
the #ifdef __powerpc__ to #if defined(__powerpc__) || defined(__ia64__) and
SDL_Quit now works properly. The change should probably be made
unconditional though since doing one byte at a time is the only way to be
portable, afaik.

     2 The latest development version of SDL is available via CVS:
     3 
     4 cvs -d :pserver:guest@libsdl.org:/home/sdlweb/libsdl.org/cvs login
     5 # No password, so just hit enter when prompted for a password
     6 cvs -d :pserver:guest@libsdl.org:/home/sdlweb/libsdl.org/cvs checkout SDL
     7 
     8 When you check a fresh copy of SDL out of CVS, you need to generate
     9 the files used by make by running the "autogen.sh" script, which will
    10 run aclocal, automake, autoconf and then run configure.
