tvpvrd is a PVR daemon for Linux that offers the ability to schedule and manage TV recordings using one or multiple installed analogue TV capture cards, e.g. Hauppauge. The daemon is interfaced either through its full command language via a provided command line shell or through a basic (built-in) Web interface provided by the built in micro Web server. The goal is to provide an advanced recording and transcoding (using ffmpeg) server without the need to configure databases or a complex GUI. The server is completely self-contained and uses an XML DB in plain text format to store future recordings.
Twapake is a system administration utility for Slackware and Slackware-based operating systems only, making it easier to manage last installed packages and see the installation date of a package. It can print a simple list of N packages sorted by installed date to STDOUT. It can print a snapshot logfile to the /var/log/twapake/ directory. A snapshot is a list of all packages sorted by installed date at T time. The installed date is printed too, making it easier to see when a package has been installed on your system. You can remove the last N installed packages, print the packages installed since a chosen date, and launch a Curses User Interface for easy removal.
