How is redistribution for the mali blobs usually licensed? I see that ARM changed their EULA starting with the r6 line to allow redistribution of the blobs. How has it been or ealier versions?

longsleep: it used to be tied to a specific SoC type or a specific board (on case by case basis) and, regarding redistribution, probably only legal as a part of the vendor firmware (created by the people who have signed NDA with ARM and have Mali DDK)
I have not signed any NDA of this kind and have no further information
ssvb: right, so how does this make the download available from Pine64 wiki without EULA? They have the signed it and thus can redistribute it even without EULA?
Its a mess and i am wondering if it would be an approach to provide a script which downloads and extracts the blob from there

my guess would be that it is simply a typical Chinese habit to strip out copyright and license notices just in case, so that it is more difficult to track the origin of whatever they provide
hehe yeah ..
ssvb: btw i got their sunxi-drm driver running on framebuffer, but using anything libdrm just crashes with [ 35.725515] [drm:sunxi_user_fb_create] *ERROR* cannot use this gem memory type for fb.
