Rockstor End User Licence Agreement (EULA)


Rockstor comes with no guarantees or warranties of any sorts, either written or implied.

The Distribution is released as GPLv2. Individual packages in the distribution come with their own licences. A copy of the GPLv2 license is included with the distribution media.


Our V4 “Built on openSUSE” EULA

The following is a Trademarks search/replace of our new upstream (openSUSE) GPLv2 license. And is the same as that displayed / agreed-to during our kiwi-ng created installer. See the following file in our rockstor-installer repository.

As indicated in openSUSE:Trademark guidelines we are required to make these changes. We are also required to use one of the given terms when referencing our new upstream: we have chosen to use: Built on openSUSE & Uses openSUSE. Examples of this use during the installer can be seen in our Rockstor’s “Built on openSUSE” installer document section.

We thank openSUSE / SuSE and the wider open source community for such excellent resources as the Leap base we use, kiwk-ng, and the Open Build Service (OBS).
