Are you using directfb over fb? Have you tried with x11?
put on your directfbrc ($HOME/.directfb /etc/directfbrc)



if this doesn't work it's because you don't have a suitable x11 backend.

You can find your backends by getting the contents one of those dirs:


if you have almost one libdirectfb_sdl.[???] you have, in this case, the
sdl backend.

fb is the default backend

I only use gdb with the default backend (fb) when I'm on another
computer doing ssh to host machine.
