It’s only a PCI card, not exactly advanced! Thank you for contacting us about your product purchase. Marc, I will forward this to our legal and web teams for evaluation and consideration. I’m not saying you’re wrong, but imagine if the the main printer board does not have enough power to run a wifi perpherial but does has a ‘spare’ parallel port input. As the source code is not provided with the printer, and that there is no mention of where the source code can be obtained either in the documents that come with the printer or on Lexmark’s website, section 3 of the GPL isn’t respected as it should. This would mean that you end goal of printer support could be broken into two parts: However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed in either source or binary form with the major components compiler, kernel, and so on of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable.

Posted April 30, Thanks for taking the time to reply to my email. I am aware that this printer is unsupported by Linux, but I didn’t care that much as I can print from my Windows computer.

A Quick search on google for “marvell 88w” Why didn’t I think of that before show a bunch of hits for it being one of Marvell’s Wifi chips. 88w8310-bwn need to be a member in order to leave a comment.

I’ll wait to see his reply. As I’m finding amrvell in front of a similar situation, I am ringing the alarm. All times are GMT Advertisements or commercial links.

From EliteGroup Computer Systems: The gpl codes you mentioned are available on our ftp site and can be downloaded at marvelk location: Thanks a lot for your time, -Marc-Andre. Results 1 to 2 of 2 Thread: Thanks for the definition of the acronym I’ve seen HBN3 referred at some places on Lexmark’s website, but it seems to be a proprietary protocol.

Please understand that although the product itself is running Linux based code on board for its internal functions, we do not have print drivers for the X series printer to print from a Linux system. I am talking about the firmware that supports the embedded web 88w8310-bab, the print server, as well 88w8310-van the other services that run on the printer. On a different matter, I know that Lexmark provides no Linux driver for this printer, but I was wondering if Lexmark considered releasing the documentation that would be necessary in order to let people from the CUPS project write a driver on their own.

Hi, I recently bought a Lexmark x, a nice wifi multifunction printer. Posted April 29, Then if they don’t positively respond, ask them for the name and address of their legal process server in your state.

I’ve just sent a reply, in order to try to make them put a link to the source code on their website: The reason why I am telling you this is because I have sufficient reasons to believe that my Lexmark x printer is running a Linux-based firmware the list of processes that I’ve sent you in my first mail shows processes that only appear on a Linux system.

Windows 7 doesn’t pick it up automatically, and there are seemingly no specific Win 7 drivers for it. I’m not saying you’re wrong, but imagine if the the main printer mqrvell does not have enough power to run a wifi perpherial but does has a ‘spare’ parallel port input.

Linux core, binary wifi driver. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know Kind regards Matt Eh? Many of these processes are process names that you only see in a Linux system.

I connected to that LXK prompt that seems to be there for printer management reasons, and listed the available commands.

I want to get to the right person in order to either get the proof that my printer isn’t running Linux-based firmware, or if it is running a Linux-based firmware, I want Lexmark to comply to the GPL a condition for Lexmark using GPL-covered code and to distribute the source 88w8310-bab for the firmware to customers.
