    I have a slight problem with the mupen64plus emulator. When I boot up a rom, it just shows a really low resolution terminal. I couldn’t make any of it out because of the low rez, so i ran a rom from putty on another computer.

    What i THINK is being displayed is:

    Video: Mupen64plus opengl video plugin by rice v2.0.0 – 63.200 VI/S

    So basically that keeps popping up on a new line in the terminal, and i think the last value changes each time.

    I think my problem is that the video is not being initialized properly, or for some reason the full-screen, low rez terminal windows is appearing on top of the emulator.

    Another thing, when i launch a rom from ssh, i get no video (obviously) but i do get sound, and many, MANY audio buffer under run warnings. However when i launch a rom from the emulationstation menus, I get no sound and no buffer under runs.

    Any odeas of how I can get the video working so I can start troubleshooint the million other problems I am bound to have?

    I love the idea of this system and I can’t wait to get it working.
