Re: [opensuse-buildservice] built: kernelmodule for broadcom 802.11 STA driver
.debs can be interactive during installation, while rpms cannot. It's
one of the big differences between the formats. So you can force
license acceptance with .debs, but not .rpms unless you make an
installer that actually checks for licenses that need acceptance for

Hi Dominique,
A pity, this driver will probably be removed soon from the servers again...

yes, what a pity.
The license from the Makefile is everything else than clear: this is GPL
and just a few sentences down 'this is unpublished proprietary software'...
they should decide on that.

I would be looking forward to help out for this driver (personal interest,
as I have a bcm4328 in my notebook.. and ndiswrapper suxx)

Isn't there a possibilty to force user to accept license before using ?
ubuntu 8.10 does have something similar. It points out having a
"proprietary" driver and asks user to "activate" this driver. Good idea.

And if I do not publish, just build ?
And publish it on my website ? What do you think about that ?
