    SubjectChanged message for GPLONLY symbols
    When insmod detects a non-GPL module with unresolved symbols it
    currently says:

    Note: modules without a GPL compatible license cannot use GPLONLY_ symbols

    I thought that hint was self-explanatory, obviously it was not clear.
    Never underestimate the ability of lusers to misread a message. insmod
    2.4.12 will say

    Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
    and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
    GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
    user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance.

    Does anyone think that this message can be misunderstood by anybody
    with the "intelligence" of the normal Windoze user?

    To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
