GPL section 1:
"You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as
you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this
License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients
of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program."
- a copy of the GPL must be included
- the licensed work must contain copyright notices saying it's licensed
under the GPL
- a disclaimer of warranty must be included
Furthermore, section 2c says that it you modify and include an existing
interactive GPL program that displays the above info when run "in the most
ordinary way" then your modified version of it also have to do that.
AFAICT the GPL doesn't say anything about displaying anything when
installing an application.
