Game Software License Issue
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2007
I am developing a game for Linux that uses GPL/LGPL software and I wound like to put a license on it. I have no experience in reading these legal papers. What is is the difference between the major software licences (MPL, GPL, MIT, X11, BSD, LGPL)?
I would like to have the game as as free and open source but I don't want people "modding" the game without my permission, ebent though that in somewhat of a paradox.
Any help deciphering the pros and cons of each is welcome.

Windows 7 with Ubuntu : Error incompatible license Grub rescue
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 9, 2012
I work on windows 7 but I needed linux for my studies so I installed it on a partition of my hard disc.
Yesterday I downloaded an update of Ubuntu and in the evening I realized that my computer could neither start on Windows nor on Ubuntu.
When I start it, I see the usual first screen on which I can press "F2" for Setup, and then I have a black screen with :
"Error incompatible license
written on it.
I read on some forums that some people already had this kind of problem but contrary to my, they were used to linux and I did not really understand what things like a "boot" are.
The thing is that the files I want to rescue are on Windows, if I need to delete Ubuntu from my pc, it is not a problem (I would like to be able to use again the partition one what I installed Ubuntu if it is possible.)
A friend's dad thinks it is a problem linked with the "Master Boot Record" but he was'nt here to solve the problem, so i
grub gives "incompatible license" after 12.10 upgrade
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 25, 2012
i did an upgrade to 12.10 and now i get an "incompatible license" error at boot and it drops me into grub repair. the system is installed on a mdadm raid1 device. i have tried changing the boot order in bios. i have tried boot-repair using default settings and here is the log http://paste.ubuntu.com/1303696/ .
i will only be supporting this machine for about 1 more year, so if fixing it will make my replacement's job more difficult i would prefer to do a fresh install to 12.04 server since this computer is only used headless, and doesn't run anything that requires x (right now it is running desktop).
Incompatible license Linux Mint 9
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 29, 2011
I have the same problem but with Linux Mint 9. I did a fresh install and when rebooted the same problem came up
I did what you suggested, selected the USB to boot from but did not boot into the Live CD. It actually booted into the system I installed. I thought it might had fixed the problem so I booted without the USB and same problem. So I booted again with the USB and it booted my system. And no, I did not install the OS in the USB.
I ran that script and I attached the results. Let me know if you want me to post the results instead of the file.

Grub "symbol not found 'grubputchar'" and "incompatible license"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 21, 2012
I have 2 hard drives: sda and sdb that have these partitions:
1. sda1 (boot for Ubuntu_10.04) 2. sda2 (swap) 3. sda3 (root for Ubuntu_10.04) 4. sda4 (home for Ubuntu_10.04) 5. sdb1 (fat32 for all stuff for Windows) 6. sdb2 (root for Debian) 7. sdb3 (root for Ubuntu_12.04) 8. sdb4 (ext4 as usb stick for Linux).
Sda is a scsi hard drive and sdb is an usb hard drive. There are installed Ubuntu_10.04, Debian and Ubuntu_12.04 (these two on sdb).
Well, after Iíve installed Debian, and disconnected the usb hard drive Iíve got a grub rescue prompt. This is normal (Debian was first in grub list). There were two problems:
1. when I tried to load a kernel of Ubuntu_10.04 I got a message "incompatible license". Not a solution but why is it there is here.
2. When I tried to load a kernel from grub rescue prompt (this was after change one Debian for another) I got this: "symbol not found 'grub_putchar'".
What is it and how can I load a kernel from grub rescue prompt?

Can't enter VMware Workstation License key VMware or Ubuntu issue?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 17, 2013
When opening VMware Workstation, I am getting to the screen where I can Purchase VMware Workstation, Enter a License, and Register.
However, when I click on "Enter License Key..." nothing happens. If I click "Get License Key..." then it takes me to the page to purchase VMware Workstation... so I'm trying to figure out why I can't enter a license...
Is this a VMware Workstation issue? Not quite sure which forum to ask for help on.
