orodos For all the dudes who're crying about (483 comments)

Losing business, etc. Sucks, but there's a trade-off when you decide to conduct business on the internet. Who cares whodunit, hacking is a part of e-culture. The internet is free, and there are some rad dudes out there expressing their freedom - just like you. You have some pretty unrealistic expectations if you expect 100% uptime. Honestly, life would be pretty boring if everything just worked like 'it should.'

Nvidia Strikes Again?

orodos orodos writes  |  about 2 years ago

orodos (2726891) writes "[Nvidia]'s Robert Morell submitted a patch to remove the GPL license from the dma buffer interface in the Linux kernel so it can be used in Nvidia's driver. Not everybody is happy, especially Alan Cox, who has been involved in Linux development since 1991 and was most influential when he maintained the version 2.2 of the Linux kernel.

Cox unmistakably told Morell that he and "many others" are not happy with the idea of combining proprietary and GPL code. Cox declined to accept Morell's patch. The argument appears to be stuck at this time as words started flying and Cox told Morell that a patch acceptance will have to get the confirmation of all rightsholders of the code, some of apparently include Red Hat and Intel. The developer left Morell with the thought to get those confirmations via attorneys."
