: : : In the VBE 2.0 documentation they mention that a 32-bit protected mode interface is availiable.
: : : Does anyone have some nice documention on how to use vesa in protected mode?

: : The simple answer is you can not use it, by that i mean you need to setup, so many things, that its not worth doing that way, you are better off, making v86 or switch to realmode and back, i see lots of peope want to use "32-bit protected mode interface" but not one person as got it to works, so good luck if you try
: It sounds so easy in the manual
Just two segment selectors and a 32-bit stack space. The problem is that my graphic routines are kinda heavy and there's to much time loss in switching mode each time i want to swap memory window.
: Hope somebody has worked this out.
Are you not using LFB ?, I swich modes by go to and from real mode in my OS and it very fast.
I have a demo, i made, to show how fast going to and from realmode is, if your interested let me know, it includes vesa mode switching.
Batteries not included, Some assembly required.
