yap Michel you resolve one mystery for me,
I use test DRI and GLUT with foobillard http://foobillard.sunsite.dk/
if we install foobillard to use GLUT, with
./configure --enable-nvidia=no --enable-glut
To test this, I just need swaping freeglut-2.2.0 binaries with GLUT
binaries and run ldconfig.
With GLUT we have foobillard with a complete fullscreen and with
freeglut "kde Panel menu" doesn't disappears on fullscreen.
This was a big mystery for me, why foobillard has stop to make a
complete fullscreen and the solution was because I had use freeglut.
So I prefer GLUT from Mesa, if this is a problem of licensing why don't
ask to Mark Kilgard to release this under one license that you like, is
license is quit simple and don't see what is the problem but I am not
aware what is required.
