The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture is composed of several parts. The first is a fully modularized sound driver which supports module autoloading, devfs, isapnp autoconfiguration, and gives complete access to analog audio, digital audio, control, mixer, synthesizer, DSP, MIDI, and timer components of audio hardware. It also includes a fully-featured kernel-level sequencer, a full compatibility layer for OSS/Free applications, an object-oriented C library which covers and enhances the ALSA kernel driver functionality for applications (client/server, plugins, PCM sharing/multiplexing, PCM metering, etc.), an interactive configuration program for the driver, and some simple utilities for basic management.
ASUS G50 OLED is a modular daemon that controls the ASUS OLED found in G1/G2/G50/G70/G71 laptops to display system monitoring statistics such as load, CPU usage, battery level, total network traffic, CPU core operating frequency, current time and date, temperatures, and notifications of new emails or instant messages. The package includes ACPI event handlers that stop writing to the display when the lid is closed and stop or start the daemon by one of the blue buttons.
Aorta is a load-balancing clustered P2P application. It executes Tasklets (which have the ability to split themselves into sub tasks that can be executed in pararell). A typical cluster contains of a LAN with 1-256 computers, each one running aorta. A Tasklet can be of any type ranging from encoding MP3s, Genomic DNA Alignment, or simply to rendering Web pages for high speed/heavily loaded Web sites. You can make functions calls to C/C++, applications like Matlab, etc.
Avahi is a framework for Multicast DNS Service Discovery (mDNS/DNS-SD a.k.a. Zeroconf) on Linux. It allows programs to publish and discover services running on a local network with no specific configuration. For example, you can plug into a network and instantly find printers to print to, files to look at, and people to talk to.
Bandit is a system of loosely-coupled components that provide consistent identity services and create a community that organizes and standardizes identity-related technologies in an open way, promoting both interoperability and collaboration. It implements open standard protocols and specifications so identity services can be constructed, accessed, and integrated from multiple identity sources. The Bandit system supports many authentication methods and provides user-centric credential management.
CANpie defines a Standard API for access to the CAN (Controller Area Network) bus. The API provides functionality for ISO/OSI Layer 2 (Data Link Layer). The CANpie driver is the base for HLPs like CANopen, DeviceNet, J1939, etc. Through its low memory footprint, CANpie can be used for embedded applications (without any OS) as well as for Linux. Access to the Linux CAN driver is via a socket interface (AF_CAN).
Cerber Grid is a light-weight high performance Java grid system that combines simplicity and easy of use with a powerful and versatile architecture. It contains a Web interface that allows a user to submit and view jobs, view statistics on the controller and the nodes, and perform other administrative functions.
