Erni replaces "su {user} -c {command}" that root uses to run commands as nonroot users, because this method requires that {user} have a valid login shell, leaving another avenue open to abuse the account. With Erni, {user} need not have a valid login shell, {user}'s group memberships may be specified on the command line, and {command} may be chroot'd. It may be used to kick off daemons and also to run interactive tools (e.g. an SQL browser) as the target user.

sysv-rc-conf gives administrators an easy-to-use curses interface for managing /etc/rc{runlevel}.d/ symlinks. The interface comes in two different flavors, one that simply allows turning services on or off and another that allows for more fine tuned management of the symlinks. It's a replacement for programs like ntsysv or rcconf.

ethwireck can detect if the physical layer of the Ethernet is up. Laptops which use dynamic IP address assignment via DHCP have the problem that the boot process is much longer when no wire is connected to the Ethernet card. This is because the startup scripts have to wait for the DHCP request to time out. ethwireck can be used in the init script for your network card to determine whether or not an interface should be brought up. In other words, a timeout is avoided.

hprofile is a simple way to manage profiles for hardware configurations, network connections, power management, usage patterns, and many other things. A profile can define alternate versions of any configuration (or other) file, anywhere in the file system, and arbitrary scripts can be run when profiles are started or stopped (e.g. to configure hardware or start/stop services). Special support is also included for 'boot' profiles, allowing you to select profiles at startup and enter different runlevels depending on which profile was selected. It's easy to use and configure, and comes with comprehensive documentation.

DOCSIS Server is a DHCP/TFTP/TOD/syslog server that uses MySQL as a backend. If you have a DOCSIS Cable Modem headend, you can use this server to boot up cable modems and assign IP addresses to customer premise equipment. With a little bit of tweaking you could also use it as just a DHCP server attached to a MySQL database. It was designed to boot up more than 150 modems per second.

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.
