Direct access to the framebuffer memory.
But that's only half the problem; the other is getting proper I/O
events into Squeak. So you could read from gpm, or from /dev/mouse,
and from the tty, etc. for mouse and keyboard input.
There is the DirectFB library which ties all this together.
Andreas' suggestion of SDL (http://www.libsdl.org) also makes sense,
as it standardizes the IO channel, the display, and the audio device.
