Which package must be purged from a legal nocodecs ISO image

Postby ayanokouzi on Fri Aug 03, 2012 5:49 am

Dear all,

Is there any official list of packages, which must/should not be in
nocodecs ISO image?

I'm remastering Linux Mint 12 KDE & Xfce desktop versions ISO images
for Japanese local community. As you know, distributing the ISO image
itself might get Japanese local community into trouble with the law
because of conflicting with patent law & unfair competition prevention
law in Japan.

By comparison between packages in with-codecs ISO images (
linuxmint-13-cinnamon-dvd-32bit.iso,
linuxmint-13-cinnamon-dvd-64bit.iso linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-32bit.iso,
linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-64bit.iso) and in nocodecs ISO images (
linuxmint-13-cinnamon-dvd-nocodecs-32bit.iso,
linuxmint-13-cinnamon-dvd-nocodecs-64bit.iso
linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-nocodecs-32bit.iso,
linuxmint-13-mate-dvd-nocodecs-64bit.iso), I find following packages
are purged from with-codecs ISO images and not in nocodecs ISO images.

cabextract
gecko-mediaplayer
gnome-mplayer
gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad
gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse
gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly
libdvdcss2
libdvdnav4
libdvdread4
libmjpegtools-1.9
libmp3lame0
libquicktime2
libxvidcore4
mint-flashplugin
mint-flashplugin-11
mint-meta-cinnamon-dvd
mint-meta-codecs
mplayer2
unrar
unshield
vlc
vlc-nox
vlc-plugin-notify
vlc-plugin-pulse
w32codecs
w64codecs

Is purging these packages from ISO images (
linuxmint-13-kde-dvd-32bit.iso linuxmint-13-kde-dvd-64bit.iso
linuxmint-13-xfce-dvd-32bit.iso linuxmint-13-xfce-dvd-64bit.iso)
sufficient to making a legal nocodecs ISO image?

Any information, however small, would be appreciated.

Regards,

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You probably forgot the totem-plugins-extra package.

Yes, purging those packages should be enough. Though I recommend using a normal "nocodecs" ISO: those offer an option "Install Codecs" in the menu. While it's indeed forbidden to redistribute the software, you can download/install the software yourself, on your own computer, without any problem.

Hi AlbertP,

Thanks for your suggestion.

totem-plugins-extra package is in nocodecs ISO images.
For what reason must/should the package be purged?

It would be great if there are official KDE and Xfce No codecs ISO
images. But there are not. That is why I've posted this topic.

I didn't know totem-plugins-extra was in the nocodecs image. As it is part of mint-meta-codecs I assumed it was only present on editions with codecs.
