Thread: Frames, NoFrames, TwoWindows

Is anyone using DJGPP 2.0 and libgrx 2 to write applications that run
under Windows 3.1 or Windows 95?  I have a program compiled with gcc 2.7.2
under DJGPP 2.0 and using the GRX 2 library for graphics. It works fine
under DOS, but under Windows 3.1/95, whenever I exit graphics mode and go
to text mode, I get a screenfull of colored blinking characters instead of
normal text. I have a Diamond Stealth 64 DRAM but others have reported the
same problem with other adapters.

Anyone have any suggestions? I'd really like to have my program work under
Windows as well as DOS, and it *almost* does... just the
switch-to-textmode that's messed up.

Many thanks for your time,
