BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for most of the utilities you usually find in GNU fileutils, shellutils, etc. The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts. BusyBox provides a fairly complete POSIX environment for any small or embedded system.

daemon turns other processes into daemons. There are many tedious tasks that need to be performed to correctly set up a daemon process; daemon performs these tasks for other processes. This is useful for writing daemons in languages other than C, C++, or Perl (e.g. sh, Java). If you want to write daemons in languages that can link against C functions (e.g. C, C++), see libslack, which contains the core functionality of daemon.

Gujin is a PC boot loader that can analyze your partitions and filesystems. It finds the Linux kernel images available, as well as other bootable partitions (for *BSD, MS-DOS, Windows, etc.), files (*.kgz) and bootable disk images (*.bdi), and displays a graphical menu for selecting which system to boot. It boots the Linux kernel using the documented interface, like LILO and GRUB, so it doesn't need any other pre-installed bootloader. It can also directly load gzipped ELF32 or ELF64 files, with a simple interface to collect real-mode BIOS data. There is no need to execute anything after making a new kernel: just copy the kernel image file into the "/boot" directory, with a standard name. Gujin is written almost entirely in C with GCC, and it fully executes in real mode to be as compatible as possible.

minit is an attempt to cross-breed DJ Bernstein's daemontools and init, while adding dependencies, and maintaining minimal code base. It is possible to start and stop services on the fly. minit does not depend on a mounted /proc file system, and it does not write to any part of the file system, not even to start and stop services. It does not use System V IPC, either.

The devfsd program is a daemon, run by the system boot, which can provide for intelligent management of device entries in the Device Filesystem (devfs). It is desirable to start the daemon at the beginning of the boot scripts, in particular before filesystem checks.

Multicast BOOTP Java server and C/Linux client's goal is to implement the BOOTP/DHCP protocol through multicast rather than broadcast. Sun's Java networking API offers multicast socket communication objects, allowing you to create a platform independent IP interface configuration utility. Eventually, such utilities may become a fully featured multicast DHCP server. Any ideas on how to support existing BOOTP broadcast client requests are welcome. See the Multicast HOWTO at http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Multicast- HOWTO.html.
