It will be nice to support external Mesa packages
with XFree86-GL and XFree86-GLU rpms.
I think they call them "glut-blah-blah.rpm" in 7.3. Too bad they don't get
installed by default, by I have no problem running GL applications after
This change is indeed planned for the next Red Hat Linux release. The
main goal being to facilitate the replacement of the libGL and libGLU
libraries with other vendor supplied ones such as Nvidia et al.
apodtele: Just a note that "glut" is libGLUT, which is a separate library
from both libGL and libGLU.
Keep an eye on Rawhide for the next 2-3 weeks, and I'll likely make this
XFree86-4.2.0-50.5 contains 2 new subpackages: XFree86-Mesa-libGL and
The new packages will appear in rawhide shortly.
