comfigure eases the task of './configure'ing many packages. It remembers the 'configure' options for each package, and uses them automatically if called without options. comfigure automatically recognizes the package name and version from the directory from which it was called. If the stored version is not equal to the current one, an MD5 digest sum is calculated over the output of './configure --help' to determine if the available options have changed. In such a case, the user will be asked what shall be done.
sash-plus-patches is a collection of patches for the well known standalone shell, sash. The key features are the chroot, pivot_root, and losetup functions. These functions provide interfaces to the respective Linux system calls. They are especially useful when sash is used in a initial ramdisk ("initrd") environment. In addition, simple shell variable expansion support has been added.
Ice Sound Manager was designed to ease the management of sound events, sound themes, and the IceSound server in the IceWM window manager. It is also intended to be an improvement upon the noble but primitive icesndcfg. The main improvements over icesndcfg include a support for sound event "themes", more comprehensive help, easy management and configuration of the IceSound server, a cleaner GUI interface, automatic starting of the IceSound server, and a more conservative approach to disk space usage.
XStow is a replacement for GNU Stow written in C++. It supports all features of Stow with some extensions. XStow and GNU Stow are programs for managing the installation of software packages. It keeps each package in its own directory while making it appear that all packages are installed in the same place. Unlike GNU Stow, XStow does not depend on Perl, and can be compiled statically for such uses as rescue disks. XStow is fully compatible with GNU Stow, meaning that you can switch from one to the other at will.
