Outdated documentation

Introduction

Since gNewSense is based on Ubuntu, we had to remove some packages from Main, Universe and from the Kernel. We later discovered that Ubuntu excluded free software from Main or Universe, most notable example being VLC. This is due to the possibility of bypassing DVD CSS protection through the use of libdvdcss (see the explanation on the mailing list).

This page is hence aiming at listing free software that have been moved to Ubuntu's non-free Repos.

Software list

This section lists free software which has been found to be in Ubuntu's non-free repositories.
