SALI (Sara Automatic Linux Installer) is a tool that allows you to install Linux on multiple machines at once. It support several protocols for downloading by way of aria2 to install a machine. For example, BitTorrent and rsync are supported. SALI originates from SystemImager and still uses the same philosophy. It is a scalable method for performing unattended installation. SALI is mostly used in cluster setups.
Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution ("LiveCD") for system administrators, based on Debian testing. You can use it to mount and manipulate hard drives and partitions, monitor networks, rebuild boot records, install other operating systems, and much more.
Excelsior JET is a Java VM enhanced with an Ahead-Of-Time (AOT) compiler and deployment toolkit. It is certified Java Compatible on Windows and Linux on Intel x86 hardware. The 64-bit version is in the works. Excelsior JET Optimizer transforms your classes and JARs into high-performance binary executables. Excelsior JET Runtime includes a licensed Sun implementation of the Java API and Excelsior's proprietary JVM, which is responsible for Java memory management, threading, synchronization, security, and JIT compilation of classes that could not be precompiled. The Excelsior JET Installation Toolkit makes it possible to prepare your optimized application for deployment to end-user systems.
LPMtool aims to be a complete package management and software distribution solution. It includes basic command line and PyGTK-based utilities for installing and removing packages, as well as tools to publish Web-based package repositories that use a GPG-based web-of-trust security model.
Jupidator is a framework to automate the updating procedure of an application. It can be used on all major platforms. It makes it easy to integrate the self-update feature to any program in any language. It has various levels of file description granularity, and the developer can work with file groups or even single files, while keeping track of the change-log in a user friendly manner. It is based on XML for describing files and Swing or a console to display visuals.
Fakeroot-ng runs a program while fooling it into thinking it is running with root privileges. When the program does something that only root can do (e.g. create a device file), fakeroot-ng emulates the appropriate system calls so that the program gets a consistent view of its actions. Unlike the original fakeroot, fakeroot-ng uses the ptrace interface, which means that it does not suffer some of the limitations that fakeroot does. In particular, fakeroot-ng supports chroot jails.
Config-Model provides a framework for editing and validating the content of any configuration file or data. With a configuration model (expressed in a data structure), Config-Model provides a user interface and a tool to validate configuration. An optional graphical (Perl/Tk) or curses interface can be used to edit configuration data that will be validated according to the user-provided model. Config-Model includes a model example for fstab and a small fstab demo.
W-Packager is a packager similar to dpkg that can be used by anyone to create and maintain Debian packages under Linux or other Unix systems. The aim of the project is primarily to have a workable version of a packager that can be compiled on many systems, including those that do not support fork(). At this time, W-Packager is used within UniGW. It can also be used under Linux.
