Hello everyone,

I'm having a problem with running DOOM using
It tries to load the library and says "exec format error".
Basically anything that uses that library (except the game
Abuse, I don't know how but it works fine) gives me that error.
Can someone please email me (preferably) with how to fix this?
If anyone needs more info, please let me know.

btw: the x/windows version runs fine although I really prefer
the console version if I could get it working.

System info:
Gateway 2000 486DX2/50
Linux 1.3.79 (ELF/a.out)

1. Trouble with vgalib demo program


I've got a problem with the demo program that shows off the vgalib
graphics routines.

I can't use it unless I'm root. If I'm logged on as a user, then it
gives me an error saying it can't use the device or something.

I don't want to write graphics programs when I'm logged on as root, so
what should I do?
