But what about the libraries that are used... for example is it
possible to use a proprietary libc with linux or does the GPL prevent
this. As far as I understand the way that proprietary program run on
linux is because all the libraries are LGPL. So I suppose what I'm
really asking is about libraries that run on a kernel or interface
directly with it... how does GPL software allow LGPL software to link
with it ?
