So, Tivo is open source. says in manual to go to tivo.com/linux or whatever.

My question is this.

Are those files listed (on TIvo.com) the Source for the Kernal, Software or Both?

If the Software is in there, than I would of expected someone to build a "custom software package" and read about it by now.

I mean, you want to keep it original and make things that run along side the "virgin" software, but I am new to open source and there was my noob question of the day.

The linux kernel that tivo uses is open source, the userland software isn't.
