The source codes of the components used by snom in its VoIP phones and covered by the GPL can be found in the following table for download.
The exact wording of the GPL can be downloaded here. The source code can be downloaded in compressed form. 'tgz' stands for .tar.gz, which means that it is a TAR (Tape ARchive) file compressed with gzip (GNU zip).
TAR allows many files to be combined into one large file while retaining their folder structure and is used, among other things, to move large collections of files into a single file, such as for some downloads at snom.
To decompress and access the files, you need a programme like tar and gzip for your specific computer platform.

All ELDK components are available with the full source code, mostly under the GPL GNU Public License, and can be downloaded via ftp here or obtained for a fee on CD-ROM from www.denx.de. Detailed information about the ELDK is also available there.
Earlier versions of the snom 100 were shipped with binaries from linuxppc.org, for which the source code is unfortunately no longer available. Therefore, the source codes listed here lack the MPC (a PowerPC variant) patches. It has been switched to the LinuxPPC Cross Development Kit (CDK), which is available from http://www.denx.de.
Our thanks go to all those who made a GPL possible and especially to Wolfgang Denk for some hints, his well-organised site and his distribution.

Source code of a programme that is made publicly available. The idea behind this is that a wider circle of programmers will develop more usable code with fewer bugs because more people will review it. Open source makes it possible to modify the code for one's own needs, rather than hoping that the producer of a copyrighted programme will incorporate user suggestions into a later version of the programme. Examples of popular open source programmes are the Linux operating system (GNU) and the Apache web server. For more information, see www.opensource.org.
The GNU project was started in 1984 to develop a free (no-cost) Unix-like operating system: the GNU System. GNU is a recursive abbreviation of "GNU's Not Unix!", pronounced "Dji-NJUH". Variants of the GNU System based on the Linux kernel are widespread. Although these systems are often simply called "Linux", the term "GNU/Linux systems" is more accurate. www.gnu.org
