   Mesa has a build-dep on gcc-3.4 for [amd64 i386 lpia], and we discussed 
that on #ubuntu-devel with pitti. Apparently those were needed because 
gcc-4.1 had some issues compiling drm-modules, am I right? Anyway, could 
the build-dep be dropped for hardy?

I sent an email about a proposed l-r-m update on ubuntu-devel. Please 
take a look at this debdiff and tell me if it needs more work:


The only truly controversial change is dropping the ATI provided libGL, 
which means that there is no need for diversions anymore (yay!). The 
Debian fglrx-driver package has done the same, and I got the idea from 
them. I have one confirmation that it actually works, performance being 
the same etc. The tester didn't get compiz running due to some error, but 
apparently it was the same when he used the ATI installer.
