Where is Lenovo Beacon Storage GPL Source code

Looking at firmware Beacon Storage is based on i686 build of Fedora 16. However it ships modified kernel, mplayer, XBMC and e.t.c. components. Legally Lenovo is obliged to release source code for modified GLP components but I can't find any link to modified source code. 

So here goes a question:

 Where can I find a link to modified GLP source code that lenovo ships with Beacon Storage.

nurtekin429,

Similar doesn't mean the same and regardless of similarity Lenovo is obliged to publish changes to GPL licensed code ti ships in firmware.

I am looking into this along with the recovery image sofware. If you have an urgent need for this you could contact support and ask them to supply it to you and should that fail please let me know your support case number.
