generic vesa - that's the problem. you can't do videoprocessing with
generic vesa drivers - its like racing indianapolis with a vw beatle.
you should really figure out how to use (at least 2d-)accelerated
drivers because pdp_sdl will also not work hardware-accelerated
otherwise. it tries to get a yuv context and if it fails it _should_
fall back to a software-only 2d rendering context. thus it should give
you a window but that won't help you much.

actually i have problems with xorg too. seems like the distros are only
halfway through in packaging everything to accept it. i use gentoo. no
fun to compile 2 hours to realise that linking of xorg fails due to
