Thanks for thins,
A big prt of the game will probably be given in LGPL itself (the UI), in
fact if I decide it is enough clean to do this :-)
Can I dynamically link to SDL on Linux and MacOS BUT provided the DLL (or
.so) with source in teh same dir of the application on Linux ?
And does someone have any idea how to do this in MacOS ?
