Dear All, Can anyone clarify my following concern on fedora 14? Following are the steps we are planning to do with Fedora 14.Please let us know if any of the steps mentioned below cost customer(Say Company 'A') to pay Fedora 14.
1. Dowload Fedora 14 source code 2. Install the same in a Dell Latitude E6410 Laptop 3. Customize the source code of Fedora 14 This step includes:a) Removal of unwanted packages (from product point of view) of Fedora 14
Example: X11, some bin utils etc. b) Change the configuration of the Linux kernel Please note: Not the source code modification c) Add product specific custom drivers4. Compile the customized source code to create an image(Kernel + product specific application) .
5. Flash this image to N number of devices 6. Sell these devices to the world wide consumers Following are our concerns in using Fedora 14 server for the product:1) Whether Company 'A' would need a license to redistribute the above mentioned image inside a device?
1.1) What is cost of license in case a license fee exists?1.2) If license fee exists, whether it will vary according to the number of standard packages of Fedora 14 incorporated in this image? 2) Whether there would be any royalty per shipped system that incorporates this image ?
2.1) If royalty exists, which assets owned by Fedora 14 is causing it.Example: Kernel patches developed by Fedora 14, Supporting packages etc.
