To run it, do a tar -xvzf on the file, then "cd x" then "./the".
It runs under X-window, under a 2.2 kernel (it may work with a 2.0 or a 2.3, but not sure), with 8, 16, 24 or 32 bpp. The final version will work with /dev/fb, a kicking ass feature of 2.2 kernels.
There is sound in there, so be sure to have /dev/dsp available (it will work with no sound, but sound is more than 50% of the intro).
You can do a "make" to rebuild it if it does not work. You will need nasm, though.
I would like to know if you like it or not. Mail me to tell me what you think of it (tell me the truth, if you think it's bullshit, well, tell me it's bullshit).
