It's clearly running a flavor of Linux (uname -apm outputs: Linux minerva_10_0_3_99 2.4.30-tango2-126.96.36.199 #29 Wed Mar 16 16:16:16 CET 2005 mips unknown). However, when you look at their website (http://www.minervanetworks.com/) that there is no publicly available source code. Since the GPL in both BusyBox and the Linux kernel require that the individual(s) that use and distribute the binaries of this software to make it available to everyone, what would one do in order to enforce this? I've personally emailed and left voicemails with no reply."
