From me rather not. But sources are lying and recompiling everything with Coldfire switch should be easy (I could add proper targets in official project). I don't have hardware to test it anyway (with no plans to get one).
Probably SDL has to be patched for firebee (for extended resolutions). I'm not familiar with current SDL state on coldfire target and condition of Firebee SDL video driver (standard resolutions should work probably).

oh ... I hope someone will compile it also for the FireBee. I think there is not much to change except to recompile it for the FireBee.
I wish I would know to do that ...

I once compiled it for coldfire, and have written some notes about it: ... uery=grafx

(Can now use Grafx2 from console with TTF, without X Windows, see patch link below)
(copy-post from
I think Grafx2 in now available in Jessie (and on Devuan Pi/Arm) (both Debian 8 )

It can be built on Wheezy (Debian 7)

Get the source here:
Get TTF patch here:

The patched files allow you to use Grafx2 with or without X Windows with SDL_TTF. Current binary builds (if you still have the .deb form the old Pi-Store) do NOT allow TTF (and others) use outside of X Windows (will crash because X is not running)

you need the development packages for SDL, SDL_image, SDL_TTF, LibPNG, and LUA 5.1 (or 5.2) for a complete build:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev libpng12-dev

By default Grafx2 uses LUA 5.1, so you need to be aware "src/Makefile" may need to be edited if you have any problems building with LUA 5.2 (you can have both installed):

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install liblua5.1-dev

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install liblua5.2-dev
