    I'm following the instructions from here, and it builds and installs fine, but when I try and launch "gvbam" from terminal I get the following:

    Code:
    Failed to init SDL: No available video deviceAborted (core dumped)
    And I if i try just "vbam" it comes up with a list of instructions/launch parameters and that's it. When I try "vbam romname.gba" it displays this:

    Code:
