ANDREW's Not a DVD Ripping and Encoding Wizard, but a command-line interface that simplifies the use of some programs to create AVI, Matroska, MP4, or OGM files from DVDs. ANDREW runs in interactive or batch mode; works on-the-fly or ripping DVDs to the hard drive; handles progressive, telecine, and interlaced NTSC and PAL formats; selects multiple audio and subtitle tracks by preferences or in full manual mode; splits movies into several files or encodes them by target size or video bit rate; and more.
Clonezilla is a partition or disk cloning tool similar to Symantec Ghost. It saves and restores only blocks in use on the hard drive if the file system is supported. For unsupported file systems, dd is used instead. It has been used to clone a 5 GB system to 40 clients in about 10 minutes.
CCFE is a simple tool to quickly supply an interactive screen-oriented interface to command line scripts and commands. It prompts users for the information needed to run the commands, and can be programmed with your preferred shell to provide predefined selections and run-time defaults. It also provides a menu system to hierarchically organize them and a viewer to browse the standard output and standard error of invoked scripts or commands.
LinuxConsole is a live and modular Linux distribution that can be started from CD/DVD, hard disk, floppy disk, USB disk, or network card (PXE). The use of "console" in the title doesn't mean that it is started in "console" mode, but is meant to symbolize the simplicity of using it. This distribution is as simple to use as a game console: you can start applications without installing them. It is modular: there is a common base (device detection, GUI) and optional modules for multimedia, communication, and servers. The goal is having a very fast startup (less than 20 seconds), very good hardware detection, and many applications available (not just games).
The OpenCA Project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust, full-featured and Open Source out-of-the-box Certification Authority implementing the most used protocols with full-strength cryptography world-wide. OpenCA is based on many Open-Source Projects. Among the supported software is OpenLDAP, OpenSSL, Apache Project, Apache mod_ssl.
audio convert is a script that converts between WAV, Ogg, MP3, MPC, FLAC, APE, AAC, and WMA files. It has an easy-to-use interface that makes it possible to fill in the tags for a few formats, copy the tags from input files into the new files, and choose the quality of compression. The script was initially designed for the Nautilus file browser and can be easily installed into Nautilus by using the installer provided with the script. You can then right-click on files and choose "audio-convert" from the "scripts" menu. The script is also known to work on rox or directly from a shell.
