In *most* cases this is open source. In the case of nVidia 3D drivers, it's closed source. In a perfect world everything would be open source, in the real world everything isn't open source.In your perfect world, everyone would agree with your approach and this entire conversation wouldn't happen. In the real world, you're asking Fedora to do something to enable binary drivers which goes against it's goals. And then you're whining about it when we say no.Oh yea, to have one developer spend one day to provide a compatibility route for a large number of Fedora users is just *way* too much to ask...sheesh... I'm not asking for someone to spend a year full time on this, it would only take about one day's worth of effort as far as I can see.
I need this too. So get busy and provide this please. ;-) -- David
