Eh, is it not GPL-2.0 now=


Yea no, this just simply isn't cleaner in my opinion than the prior. Please revert it.


Are these needed or not? If not, we should just remove these lines.

  • Restored GPL-2.0 (sorry, I missed it because it's not mentionned in the LICENSE.txt file)
  • Remove commented lines (wasn't meant to be committed)
  • Revert to prior build section in the package.yml as requested although it is not correct anymore

Steam still ships glew1.10 so I don't know if this can be updated

Our glew is _super_ old now though

Please be very careful when affecting the Steam runtime. We have MULTIPLE glew packages for compatibility.

Don't we have R924 for this (and similar) reasons? It looks like Steam itself is built against both 1.10 and 1.12 (the current version) anyway.


double build

Remove "double build" section

I'm hesitant to include this without more rebuilds of rev-deps.

@kyrios123 Before I will accept this, I would like us to add a compatibility package for glew 1.12 like we did with glew110 and also add the resulting glew112-32bit package as a rundep for Steam.


Steam only ships these libs:

So technically we need 1.6 rather than 1.12. But no-one is seems to use it as 1.10 is available.

Glew is too old for now. I think reverse build should be tested once for the update.
