This is a set of Linux drivers for the ACP modem (Mwave), a WinModem. It is composed of a loadable kernel module and a user level application. Together these components support direct attachment to public switched telephone networks (PSTNs) and support selected world wide countries. This driver provides support for the IBM ThinkPad 600E. The modem also supports the standard communications port interface (ttySx) and is compatible with the Hayes AT Command Set.
GNU Phantom.Home is a computer controlled home automation system. The software includes a circuit diagram for building the Phantom.Home.Controller, a simple circuit board that attaches to your PC's parallel port. Using the combination of hardware/software you can control (i.e. flip on or off) nearly any 120V device. And with a little bit of electronics know-how, you can probably control nearly any device at any voltage by modifying the circuit board to meet your needs. The simple circuit included can be created and built for around $25. The modules cost around $10 (basically a heavy duty relay).
GNU Phantom.Security is a computer-controlled security system. Using the software and a simple circuit board (diagram included) that you build, you can create a good basic security system that is computer controlled. The system can use off-the-shelf security devices like motion sensors, door magnets, and fire/smoke detectors with little to moderate modification. You can have a total of 5 devices per port. And if the machine the system is running on is connected to a LAN/WAN or the Internet, you can have it send e-mail. If you have a pager or cell phone capable of receiving e-mail, then you will have around the clock intrusion/fire detection for your home or office.
libbgrab is a video4linux grabbing library to facilitate use of framegrabber cards and webcams through a few function calls. To implement constant throughput and to avoid frame loss delays, triple buffering is used through local buffer copying in a separate grabbing thread. The many demo and utility programs included can display live video to X, convert live video to ASCII, smoothly zoom live-video (using Glide), do some image processing (using MMX), and provide a stand-alone webcam image server.
lm_sensors provides essential tools for monitoring the temperatures, voltages, and fans of Linux systems with hardware monitoring devices. It contains a library for sensors access (libsensors), a command-line tool for sensor reporting (sensors), and a daemon (sensord). It also contains scripts for sensor hardware identification and fan speed control.
