Hi it works fine except after leaving mplayer or any SDL application my 
tty seems broken. I can't switch to a tty anymore my screen stays black 
and I must reboot/shutdown (no panic)

Are you encountering the same issue? There is no way to use vgl as 
regular user or we could open a PR for it?

Cheers,
