Games not able to initialize with SDL issue...

Forums: 

Hello,

I was playing the game sauerbraten and then for some reason it (and most of my other games) stopped working...
I tried opening sauerbraten in terminal and here is the error...

Using home directory: /home/elijah/.sauerbraten
init: sdl
Unable to initialize SDL: No available video device

I am using Ubuntu 9.10.

Thanks.
