Description Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2019-04-01 07:40:17 UTC
For example in version 6.0.0: /lib/modules/4.19.19-1-lts/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/b43/b43.ko.xz is a binary driver for which we decided in bug 666588 that we cannot distribute it. Also the ebuild will need RESTRICT="mirror bindist".

Also LICENSE="GPL-2" is incomplete (as is the upstream claim on that "SystemRescueCd is licensed under the GPL-2 license.").

AFAICS, all versions currently in the tree are affected.
Comment 1 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2019-04-01 08:07:12 UTC
Other examples of undistributable packages, in systemrescuecd-x86-5.3.2:

dev-libs/openssl-1.0.2p[-bindist] (bindist restricted, elliptic curves)
media-libs/freetype-2.9.1-r3[-bindist] (bindist restricted, ClearType patents)
www-client/firefox-bin-63.0.1-r1 (mirror restricted, official branding)
