I don't have X at all. So I can't have xv and x11. I know about that.
I'm using mplayer for quite some time and I used to suid to root on
redhat and lateron slackware.

On LFS I can use it as root and suid root. Not that it really matters,
because those around me are muggles and can't really exploit anything,
But I want to do things and learn things.

The prob is with perms AFAIK. some how it can't open the fb0 device.
Is there a way to see if I can check weather the user phoenix can open
it? I thought of doing something like echo hi >>/dev/fb0 but afraid it
might screw up something.
