Subject: [gentoo-dev] Comment on the current bzflag ebuild

1 The bzflag ebuild uses a tiny shell script to run bzflag. This makes some
2 sense, but it also has the line:
3 export MESA_GLX_FX=fullscreen
5 I dont think this is a good idea. Not that I know of any unforseen
6 problems that can arise from this, but I dont think you should be setting
7 env variables for people when they might not want them set.
9 A better thing to do would be to have some notes spat out on merge about
10 setting this variable and maybe a pointer to more information about it,
11 but it should not IMHO be set automatically (esp not in this fashion).
