Thanks a lot Jeff. So definitely CC cannot be used.

I don't want to use it for the software itself, but for pictures that are used
by it.

I found a package in Extras that is in exactly the same situation:

In spec file, there is :

License: GPL and Free Art License

They are the ones I want to use. So dual licensing seems to be acceptable. And
Free Art license may be used.

I know that this is a data package for a software one. But the dual license
applies to torcs-data only, not to torcs + torcs-data.
