BitRock InstallBuilder allows you to create easy-to-use multiplatform installers for Linux (x86/PPC/s390/x86_64/Itanium), Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86/Sparc), IRIX, AIX, and HP-UX applications. The generated application installers have a native look-and-feel and no external dependencies, and can be run in GUI, text, and unattended modes. In addition to self-contained installers, the installation tool is also able to generate standalone RPM packages.
histbackup makes incremental backups of a directory tree in a set of directories named by dates, or date-time if the date already exists. Its companion script histbackup-prune controls the archive growth. The new backup is prepopulated by hardlinks of each file from the previous backup and then updated with rsync(1). This arranges that the only new content of each new backup is fresh copies of the changed files. In this way each backup directory is a full copy of the source directory but the disk space cost is that of an incremental backup. Because it uses rsync, it is possible to efficiently backup remote directories in this manner.
UniPackage is an alternative to distribution-specific packaging systems like dpkg and RPM. UniPackage is a simple system that works on any Linux distribution. UniPackage packages are tar.bz2 archives which contain a self-contained "AppDir" which can be moved anywhere in the filesystem without disturbing the application's installation. In most cases, this packaging does not require changes to the application's code. The issue of dependencies is avoided by bundling all required libraries in the AppDir.
FullSync is a powerful tool that helps you keep multiple copies of various data in sync. It can update your Web site using FTP and SFTP, back up your data on the local disk or refresh a working copy from a remote server on your local drive using Samba, and much more. It features multiple protocol support, flexible rules, a scheduler, and many other features that give you a solid basis for nearly all situations.
flmkisofs is a very simple program for creating ISO images with the mkisofs program. It can create DVD video ISO images, Apple ISO filesystems, HFS/ISO filesystems, and El Torito or Generic bootable ISO filesystems. It fully supports versions 1 through 3 of the ISO filesystem standard, with RockRidge and Joliet extensions, and has partial UDF support.
