Binary package “libsvga1” in ubuntu lucid

console SVGA display libraries

 system console, without going through the X Window System. It uses
 direct access to the video hardware to provide low-level access to
 the standard VGA and SVGA graphics modes. Only works with some
 video hardware; use with caution.
