Please help me to over come these errors when i tried to install DirectFB over RedHat Linux 9.0. I enabled the FrameBuffer device and the necessary things to work the DirectFB and recompiled the kernel. But when i tried to execute the DirectFB program it is throwing the following errors. since i am new to Linux i couldn't understand wat to do. Please help me to solve this as soon as possible.
The Error message on the console is:
