Where do I find a protected mode VESA 2.0 Library for Watcom C V 10.0 (For free) ?
It HAS to be VESA 2.0, i've tried VESA 1.2, and it's just too
slow. I need the library to be able to set up an 800x600x16M screen (Mode 0x115 as far as I remember).

The VESA library you refer to is VESA 1.2. That was the library
I used before, but i need a VESA 2.0 library.

I think you will find MGL from SciTech to contain this.  See:

    ftp://ftp.scitechsoft.com/devel/md40wc11.exe

For a self extracting archive of the source for MGL.

Wow, that's an 11 MB library.
Sorry about the slow response, but I had to figure out which files
I needed, to use the "md40wc11.exe" library.
I still haven't really testet the library, but the examples seems to work, so that's great.
