Black for a long time (about 30 seconds).
Then the logo and the four circles appear in the corners.
Nothing happens for another 30 seconds (top shows that it's got almost 100% CPU though)
Pressing keys has no effect
Eventually, menu appears and logo is smaller above menu. Some highlight effect behind the word "start" takes 10 seconds to change from white to sort-of-red.
There is a little "1" in the bottom-right-hand-corner.
I'm guessing I'm experiencing some kind of "0.001 FPS" problem here.
linux 1.4.2_04 1Ghz P3. No exceptions in log, but I do get
Failed to choose preferred display mode, falling back to any mode:1400 x 1050 x 24 @0Hz
Which is correct (that means "laptop monitor running at full res and it's normal refresh rate" - as I've pointed out before elsewhere, LWJGL seems to always report 0 as the refresh rate for this LCD). As noted previously, linux reports "24" for 32, IIRC because of the way X11's config works - e.g. if you specify "32 bpp" in the config, your machine will crash and not load X
. Apparently, its not that they think 32 == 24, it's that they have their own unique definition of the meaning of the term "ColorDepth" which is not equivalent to what everyone else in the world uses...
