Description Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-04-20 15:46:36 UTC
The LICENSE variable in the nvidia-cuda-toolkit ebuilds currently says NVIDIA-r1, courtesy of zerochaos. It shouldn't have said NVIDIA to begin with - there are many subtle differences between the NVIDIA-r1 in the portage tree which governs the copyright of x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers, and the license in doc/EULA.txt found in the nvidia-cuda-toolkit sources.

Bug #463872 is completely unrelated.

> Bug #463872 is completely unrelated.

I had added the previous see also to explain why I (incorrectly) changed the license from NVIDIA to NVIDIA-r1.  The bug had suggested that the NVIDIA license had changed and all things using it should be updated.  I blindly did this instead of digging through the code and noticing that was not correct.  As Jer correctly points out, this needs a little more tlc than I gave it.
