Default Linux Source and Software License - 05-10-2008, 08:46 AM

I am interested in making a Debian Package as well as a RPM. However, the documentation on Alice for Linux is sparse, and there is no source code available.

What license is it under, and what libraries does it depend upon? Packaging typically requires that all libraries that were bundled with the application be made into other packages, or, if they already exist, be made a dependency of the Alice package.

On the offical download side at http://www.alice.org/index.php?page=...download_alice there is the sourcecode at the bottom of the page. Scroll it down and you see it.

If you don't find it:
PC Source Code
Mac Source Code

You can find a link to it on the download-side and under Doanloads->Alice license
http://www.alice.org/index.php?page=license


Are you sure you have looked at the Alice side? And have been grappled with it?

Heh. No "Linux Source Code", yet there are binaries for linux.

What libraries does Alice depend upon? As part of the packaging process I have to unbundle them and make them a dependency.

Alice source code is provided, however there are no .mak, Ant files, etc. provided to "build" the program.

Good luck,

I would like to develop a commercial product based on Alice, but I do not understand much about licensing.
When I read at http://www.alice.org/index.php?page=license
that "Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without modification..."
Does "redistribution" includes selling a product?
For example, I found that CISCO
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/secu...Copyright.html
acknowledges using software from CMU.
Could I do a similar thing?
Thanks,
Nagib

Yes, you can do what you want with it I think as far as the Alice dev team care, just as long as you give credit to CMU in the software and wherever you host it. You need to include this message inside the software:

This product includes software developed by Carnegie Mellon University
Meirs done it with Mama and he charged a fee for it, but it wasnt very successful - I put that down to bad publication and advertising.

I have mostly moved on from Alice, but may still respond to messages if important [¬º-°]¬
