Re: [NYHEDER] Nyt om Linux driver-projekt

Den del holder vist ikke helt. Hvis en driver er udgivet under GPL, så må man godt kopiere koden fra den, så længe resultatet også er under GPL (eller eventuelt holdes internt.)


Om en specifik NDA pålægger underskriveren den begrænsning kan jeg naturligvis ikke sige uden at se den. Men enhver anden udvikler må natuglivis bruge koden på nøjagtig samme måde som ethvert andet stykke kode, der er under GPL.

OpenBSD folkene siger: "Signing NDA's ensures that Linux
gets a working driver, sure, but the internals are indistinguishable
from magic. It is a source code version of a blob.

Det kommer så absolut an på hvordan de drivere, der er udviklet under en NDA kommer til at se ud. Hvis der er tale om "write-only"-kode, så vil jeg give BSD-folkene ret, men hvis koden er læsbar og forståelig, er det en helt anden sag.



Med venlig hilsen

Ole
