SubjectRe: UnitedLinux violating GPL?
Hi,

Sure, it's here:

ftp.suse.com:/pub/unitedlinux/1.0/src/kernel-source-2.4.19.SuSE-82.nosrc.rpm

This RPM contains the individual patches as well as the specfile to create
the kernel-source.rpm. It's only missing the vanilla kernel source tarball
in order to save space (this tarball is available on every other ftp
server in the internet anyway).

For creation of the individual binary kernel RPMs you need the following
source RPMs which are of course also available:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 18972 Oct 21 21:45 k_athlon-2.4.19-111.src.rpm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 168055 Oct 21 22:28 k_debug-2.4.19-79.src.rpm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 186467 Oct 21 22:04 k_deflt-2.4.19-120.src.rpm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 178477 Oct 21 22:04 k_psmp-2.4.19-115.src.rpm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 185329 Oct 21 22:21 k_smp-2.4.19-113.src.rpm

Any chance you could check the facts before accusing people publically?

Because they are probably not too lazy to check the facts before offending
people.
