Hm, is it RealPlayer but no ATI/NVIDIA?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on March 10, 2007 06:46 AM
One newbie Linux user advertised Linux Mint on one of local Linux forums.

He insists that they do ship RealPlayer and a bunch of other stuff which is, this way or that, non-redistributable without an extra agreement, even if freely downloadable.

Is it true that they managed to include what they shouldn't but missed what they should? (ATI/NVIDIA drivers, for example)

FWIW, ALT Linux includes everything that can be included for those in jurisdictions which put software patents down. And videodrivers, too.<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)
