  • FYI, I submitted the patches here:

    http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...st/001838.html

    just in case anyone wants to re-test with r300g, since I only tested them on nvidia.

      Tried it out with r300g, it's working fine!

        Looks rather good to me. I'm still suspicious about the gear not looking quite symmetric but I might just be imagining it.

        • Dare I suggest having two geartrains?

          Fix one geartrain to render beautifully, and keep the other broken one around to test that the driver doesn't crash or lock up when abused?

            Concerning the licensing issues, you can't copy a GPL code and commit it in Mesa.
            Maybe if he simply states in a friendly e-mail what he likes to do (contribute to Mesa) and just ask if they could perhaps release a tiny segment of that code under the mit lisence to him they will just do it? No is what you have, a yes is what you might get.

              Brian Paul committed the patches. Now there's source from me in mesa. Ego++

              Hopefully it'll prevent a bit of confusion for driver developers in the future.

                Yeah, now there's no weird white stuff anyway. I still find it a bit confusing that the lower part of the wheel you fixed isn't similar to the upper part of the wheel but guess I can live with it.

                  Well what about getting ideas from it then?

                    That's what some BSD people do. They scrounge GPL'd Linux kernel code for 'inspiration' and 'ideas' and then try to obfuscate it by renaming variables and rearranging code. Sometimes they are a little bit careless and this results in blatant copyright infringement.

                    Really there's a fine line between copying ideas and copying code. A line that can be easily crossed even if you do have good intent. Since it's not uncommon to end up implementing the ideas exactly the same way as the code where you got the ideas from in the first place.

                    Surely you don't want to go that road, and I don't think Mesa would accept it.
