Kororaa GPL Update
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 5 June 2006 at 01:00 AM EDT. Add A Comment
Chris Smart of the Kororaa Project has once again updated the Kororaa web-site after receiving an email from the Free Software Foundation. This battle started out by a kernel maintainer who had stated that Kororaa broke the GPL by distributing it with binary-only modules, specifically those for ATI and NVIDIA display drivers (original information here). The Free Software Foundation has yet to provide direct evidence as to whether the distribution of binary-only Linux kernel modules violate the GPL. The latest Kororaa email with Chris' reply can be found here.
