Re: [Xen-users] Re: Unsigned GPLPV drivers


I ressend that, as I always forget to switch of signing my mail. The xen-users List don't like signed Emails.

Only way is to use Ready Driver Plus

Yes, I ran that once and my general feeling is that it's a very hacky
Hacky, but works. I have it running on several w2k8 vm's.

Is there any likelihood of the GPLPV drivers getting signed with a "real"
certificate? The Microsoft documents on driver signing are a bit vague on
what is actually required but it doesn't seem as if the full WHQL testing
needs to be done, you only need an SPC certificate from a trusted CA. For
example Comodo are selling code signing certs for $179 for a year.

Could "anyone" then purchase one of these certificates and sign the GPLPV

Hmm 179 Dollars would not be much, is it a one time purchase, or every
time you sign a driver?

Maybe I can arrange something.
