Hi Rabie
The second link you posted appears to be much more recent:
https://github.com/godspeed1989/fbv

It includes this note:
Quote
GIF support through libungif has been removed as that library is obsolete.

Looking through  main.c  I think this warning should be gone:
Code: [Select]
main.c:431:4: warning: ‘i.do_free’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe - uninitialized]
  431 |  if(i.do_free)

The  jpeg.c  warnings should be gone as well.

Hi Rich,
so i did now install fbv from that other link and it did work better without disabling anything

Thank you

Hi Rabie
If this is just for a splash screen while booting, this may be of interest:

Hi Rich,

i am trying to install the same Version on an Pi 4 (piCore v13.x armv7l)
and i can't find a newer version of fbv in the Internet

i did exactly the same but it's not working:
Code: [Select]
checking for libjpeg presence... no
checking for libpng presence... no
building with bmp support... yes
checking for DEFAULT_FRAMEBUFFER... /dev/fb0
installation dir: /usr/local/bin
manuals dir: /usr/local/man

libjpeg-turbo.tcz and libpng are installed.

I think it had something to do with the Hardware.

Hi Rabie
I think you should be able to use the version you already compiled.

When compiling you need to use the *-dev version of extensions i.e. libpng-dev, libjpeg-turbo-dev, etc.

they are installed too but for some reason it doesn't recognize them
