I'm starting to write a small software that I intend to run on embedded linux, and I want to draw the GUI using a framebuffer device. However, since I want to be able to test the software on my development computer I would like to simulate a frame buffer device. The plan is to render the GUI using the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries.

I've heard of Xvfb, but from what I can tell it simulates a X server, which is not what I was looking for. There also seems to be a virtual framebuffer driver in the linux kernel, but it seems to be more targeted at testing the framebuffer subsystem.

I've used Qt earlier, and used qvfb to simulate a framebuffer device. I'm looking for something similar, but more generic.

So, is there a good method for creating a dummy framebuffer device with viewable output?
