    No one stopped them from being in charge. They just don't write that much code as the Intel folks do.

    There are 0 Nvidia devs, 1 ATI dev, and an army of Intel devs working on Mesa. Guess who make the rules.

    What does Intel Benefit from its Army of Open Source OpenGL Devs?

    Hey, it's 2 ATI devs, not 1

    Bam. This is the 1 Mio $ question. In my opinion, none of the global players contribute just for fun.

    On the other hand, I'm pretty happy, that someone of them contributes to the vast scope of GFX.

    Intel doesn't have a closed source video driver. So unlike AMD and Nvidia who each have a big team of developers creating a blob driver that replaces large parts of X, Intel works with X and Mesa devs to adjust X to do what they need.

    It avoids reinventing the wheel pretty much.
    And Intel isn't in the workstation graphics market like AMD and Nvidia, so they only need a simple driver, and don't need professional level support.

    The same benefit it gets from it's army of Windows developers: a working driver.

    Looks like this has been fixed, as I can't reproduce this problem on i965.

    Well, I can't seem to be able to compile Mesa-git anymore on my Slackware-current, as the GLSL2 merge has added a hard dependency on talloc, a library distributed within Samba, at least on Slack.
    The configure script does not seem to be able to find the library, while it is located in standard /use/lib64 path, and the headers are in /use/include. The version is 0.2, so it should not be very old.
    configure does not give a clue on why it chokes on this one.
    If anyone has an idea, I'll be gratefull.

    Configure by default uses pkg-config to locate talloc. If your pkg-config regarding talloc is botched, you need to define TALLOC_CFLAGS and TALLOC_LIBS yourself. (note that usually if those aren't defined, pkg-config is used; hence even if you do have the headers and libs, check will fail)
