    On topic: Shifting legal burden on user may prevent major distributions in shipping that support. As it was with libdecss
    and there will be tutorials/packages/whatever on how to enable it the next day

        What happens if you remove the lib after recompiling mesa with the lib? Are you getting segmentation faults or undefined references? Or does just the support for texture compression disappear?
        I just tried. Uninstalled it and restarted xdm. Everything keeps working correctly and only S3TC support won't work anymore.

        So I guess Mesa/Gallium just tries to load the lib at runtime. That's good; that means anyone can install it and it will "just work".

            Yes, it is dynamically opened at runtime.

                Why do you guess that? If i understand it he is working on optimize Gallium3D for the Video stuff.

                  I don't know whether you know, but Marek had done some work in multi-threading drivers direction. At least for r300g.

                  I suppose that it will land in r600g shortly. Kudos to Marek!

                    David has just increased by 1000% the number of r600g users.
                    As soon it's in rawhide, I will erase fglrx from my HDD
