Hwclock is a program that runs under Linux and sets and queries the Hardware Clock, which is often called the Real Time Clock, RTC, or CMOS clock. This is the program that most Linux systems use to get the time from the Hardware Clock and set the System Time at boot time. This program works on ISA (Intel), Alpha, SPARC, and M68K systems with or without /dev/rtc.
Gizmo Daemon is a program for controlling your computer based on events from input devices. It has built-in support for all Linux input devices, including keyboards with special keys, joysticks, remotes, dials, and more. It lets you control applications, launch programs, change the system volume, switch desktops, and directly control Amarok. It can visualize system events (such as Amarok sound output, CPU usage, etc.) on capable devices (keyboards with LEDs, Griffin PowerMate, etc.). It also features support for LIRC and RF based remote controls, allowing it to have per-application key mappings and configurable sensitivity settings.
RUNT (ResNet USB Network Tester) is Slackware Linux designed to run off of a 128 MB USB pen drive. It consists of a boot floppy image and a zip file, similar to zipslack. It is intended to be a fairly complete Linux installation for use as a testing tool capable of booting on any x86 computer with a USB port and a bootable floppy drive.
Spindown is a daemon to spin down idle disks and thus save energy and give the disks a longer lifetime. It also works with USB disks and hot-swappable disks because it uses the device ID to identify the disk instead of the device name (such as hda or sdb). This means that it doesn't matter if the disk is swapped while the daemon is running.
OWFS (One Wire Filesystem) allows easy control of the 1-Wire bus under Linux. The bus can either be viewed in a Web browser (OWHTTPD) or as files (OWFS). This makes manipulating the 1-wire devices easy with shell scripts, Perl, C, and other programming languages. 1-Wire devices are intriguing chips made by Dallas Semi. They are cheap, uniquely numbered, and take minimal wiring to connect (a data/power line and ground are all that's required. Chip functions include memory, switches, counters, and sensors of temperature and voltage.
TurboPrint is a comfortable high-quality printer driver system for Linux. It is designed to produce maximum quality photo printouts as well as high-speed text documents. It provides printer drivers for almost every inkjet printer, e.g. Canon PIXMA, Epson Stylus Color and Photo, and HP DeskJet, DesignJet, and PhotoSmart. All printer features are supported. TurboPrint has a real color management system. High quality color profiles ensure optimum color reproduction on all print media. A comfortable GUI configuration menu and a printer toolbox (head cleaning, alignment, ink quantity) are included. TurboPrint can be easily integrated into the CUPS printing system.
