+# Hints for Debian - READ THEM FIRST!
+#
+# Allegro is built with many drivers, some of them are not really stable
+# and may cause trouble or crash your X-Server or destroy your console.
+# For this reason, you should only choose XWIN as your "system"
+# environment (see below) - in this case you can play the games only in
+# the X11-environment, but you get more stability. Running on console
+# will fail. If you are developer or are sure that the "Linux console"
+# mode won't crash your system, you may try it on your own risk and
+# report bugs to the upstream (look for mailing lists on Allegro's main
+# homepage).
