Hi all,

The Open Pandora (GNU / Linux ARM) port (revision 5471) fails on startup with the following error message:

odamex: /media/Pandora/dev/odamex-svn5471/trunk/client/sdl/i_sdlvideo.cpp:172: ISDL12VideoCapabilities::ISDL12VideoCapabilities(): Assertion `supports8bpp() || supports32bpp()' failed.

Luckily, we have another SDL version at our disposal on the Open Pandora:


So I'm just using that one at the moment.

I'm not sure whether this is an Odamex bug or an issue with our stock SDL version, but I prefer to let you know about it anyway.

Cheers, Magic Sam

What is the version of the stock SDL package?
Comment 2 Samuel VISCAPI 2016-09-18 05:54:07 UTC
Hi Mike,

If I'm not mistaken, it's libsdl-1.2-0 -

Is this still an issue? Can you please test with SDL2 as well to make sure everything works correctly for the next release as well?

Hi HeX_Vulture,

Sorry for the late reply, I will update the Open Pandora build ASAP and let you know whether that SDL bug is still there or not.

Cheers, Sam

Can we get an update on this?
Comment 6 HeX_Vulture 2019-12-22 21:06:57 UTC
Marking resolved, as nobody on the team has an openpandora and the user has not given a status update in 3 years.
