This version of SDL needs Cybergraphx V3 (r69+) or CyberGraphX V4
slouken@21
     8
and AHI v3+. Probably it works also with P96 or CGXAga, but it's 
slouken@21
     9
untested.

This version is available as linked library for SAS/C and GCC, only 68k this 
slouken@21
    12
time, a powerup (ppcemu compatible) and a morphos version will be ready quite 
slouken@21
    13
soon (i hope).

    29

The SAS/C library is distributed with debug info attached, to strip debug info 
slouken@21
    33
simply add STRIPDEBUG argument to the linker.
slouken@21
    34
slouken@21
    35
NOTE: SDL includes debug output using kprintf, to disable it add to your 
slouken@21
    36
project a function like this:
slouken@21
    37
slouken@21
    38
void kprintf(char *a,...)
slouken@21
    39
{
slouken@21
    40
}
slouken@21
    41
slouken@21
    42
Otherwise you can redirect the debug to a console window with sushi, sashimi or
slouken@21
    43
similar tools (the default output is the internal serial port).
