In addition to SVGALib, these DEPS are required, says the developer...

libc-2.*
libpthread-*
libvga.so.1.*
libvgagl.so.1.*
***********
The latter 2 are the essence of svgalib!

libpthread.so  is in  eglibc_base-dev.tcz
Also found in Core base ;)

While Arachne appears to be active again, Linux support has been dropped, see:
http://glennmcc.org/
I don't think that is the accurate interpretation after digging deeper, rather that the way it is phrased on frontpage does lead to such a misinterpretation.
From what I understand, what is meant (but not stated without a doubt) is that while 1.95 is available as build (binaries), the Linux version of 1.97 is available in source form only.
That would get more obvious when looking at the version number of the targets of the links here:

I tried building  svgalib  and while it built  libvgagl.so, it seems to fail to create  libvga.so.
Curious, did you attempt to build the kernel helper module as well?

Hi tinypoodle
It built the object file for vga_helper but I'm guessing the build bombed before building the module.

I was interested about because this is a kernel module which has actually another usage unrelated to svgalib:
It would allow the use of the vidix video drivers without a need of running as root or SUID (at least so with mplayer).

consider using a browser that has better Linux support.

...or that:

Dear tinypoodle and Rich:

The page has been turned.  Thanks for your time, replying to my post.
Returning to DosBox would be one step forward and two backwards!

Best TCP wishes,
