[lsb-discuss] X11 Extensions for Fullscreen OpenGL

Hi, I am new to this. Just ran lsbappchk and got the following message:

  DT_NEEDED: libXxf86vm.so.1 is used, but not part of the LSB

My understanding is this library provides the only way to get a fullscreen
graphics mode (at least for OpenGL apps).

On the WheresMyLibrary page's X11 Extension Libraries - 'B' list it shows:
libXxf86vm - ??: not in spec

I wonder if there is much interest given that fullscreen is important for
apps like games, simulators, and screensavers?

The Database Navigator shows:

  There are 17 applications registered in the database that use interfaces
from this library (list...).
  There are 23 applications registered in the database that require this
library (list...).

  The library is absent in 1 distribution.

  Other distributions provide this library. (Around 40).

Does this mean these apps should use a static version of the library? What
are the most likely things that could break my apps?
