For example, the Vivante 3D driver is a also another closed source drop from Marvell, but it is available in rpmdropbox (and I assume its licensing allows it so). Perhaps re-distributable (and being stored in public repository) is a too-strong word. The question really boils down to this: can the marvell-ipp be used in alternative distributions (that runs on OLPC) other than the official Fedora? And if yes, which whom (email address) can I ask to get them?
