SimpleNetConfig is a simple network utility that helps a novice Linux user perform simple network configuration tasks. These include changing the hostname, NFS exports, Samba server, and network interfaces. It is similar to the nm-applet, which is used to configure network settings in Ubuntu. However, SimpleNetConfig differs from nm-applet significantly in that it does not ignore the standard network configuration files, such as /etc/network/interfaces.
Ambit uses Bash brace expansion to expand and list hostnames or commands. Ambit is first and foremost meant to be a general purpose hostlist enumerator for use by other applications or scripts. Ambit can be used to manage HostGroups from the context of a user, a system, or a network. Ambit is also able to enumerate and execute commands that contain expandable elements. Commands passed to Ambit are expanded into separate statements and executed synchronously. This means Ambit can expand and execute just about anything on the command-line and often works in situations where Bash brace expansion would probably fail.
Patchman is a patch status monitoring tool for Linux systems. Patchman clients send a list of installed packages and enabled repositories to the server. The server (CLI or Web) tells the user which hosts require updates, whether those updates are normal or security updates, and shows installed packages that are not part of any repository. Hosts, packages, repositories. and operating systems can be filtered using features or arbitrary tags. For example, you can find out which hosts have a certain version of a package installed, and which repository it comes from. Patchman does not (yet) have the ability to update packages on hosts.
Super Grub2 Disk is a bootable floppy, CDROM, or USB system which lets you boot into your system. It is simply a Grub2 disk with a lot of useful menus. It can try to autodetect all of your operating systems, load your grub.cfg configuration file, and load grub2's core.img, even if the mbr is damaged. It has multi-language support.
sortsamples is a utility that solves the problem of having many sample CD/sample library directories with each having kick, hi-hat, snare, etc. folders (leading to sampledirectorychaosmadness). With many sample directories, you ll be slapped around many directories hunting for kicks/hi-hats etc. This utility creates symbolic links to directories which are similar. This way, you can have all your kick. It was made because external Sample organizing utilities can also become a pain, because usually your DAW also has a sample browser in it. It would be nice to have structure at the source: the filesystem. This is a crazy effort to combine similar folders and categorize automatically.
