Brian,

I have attached the license.html found in the downloaded mesa6.3.2 source. It says

 

******************************************

The core Mesa library is licensed according to the terms of the MIT license. This allows integration with the XFree86, Xorg and DRI projects.

*******************************************

Can we still use the default Mesa license ??

 

********************************

The default Mesa license is as follows:

OR

Do we still need all the components licenses ?

Please advice .

 

Thanks

Ravi
