OpenADK is a construction kit for embedded Linux. It creates Linux systems that are optimized for size and short bootup times. The toolchain supports many architectures (arm, m68k, mips, microblaze, ppc, sparc, superh, x86, and x86_64). It can build customized images for Qemu. Raspberry PI, Lemote Yeelong, and Sharp Zaurus devices are supported as a proof of concept. Approximately 685 source packages are available.
tsf is a command line utility for creating timestamped copies of files. When invoked on a file, a copy of that file is created with a name made of the file name plus a timestamp. When invoked again on the same timestamp mark, a copy with a timestamp plus a sub-index is created, and so on. tsf provides an easy and quick way for creating timestamped copies of files before modifying them.
RemoteBox is a graphical tool which lets you administer guests or virtual machines running under VirtualBox on a remote server or even your local machine if desired. You may, for example, have a root server on the Internet, a server at home, or a server at work running VirtualBox but want to have the convenience of managing the guests easily from your local machine. The virtual machines run in headless mode, which means you don't need an active graphical display on the server but you can still connect and view the displays of the guests. The goal of RemoteBox is to provide a GUI that should be familiar to VirtualBox users while allowing them to administer a remote installation of VirtualBox. It does this via the VirtualBox API and SOAP interface, which are exposed when running the VirtualBox Web service. You can also use RemoteBox simply as an alternative interface for managing VirtualBox on your local machine.
Quassel IRC is a modern, cross-platform, distributed IRC client, meaning that one or more clients can attach to and detach from a central core, much like the popular combination of screen and a text-based IRC client, but graphical. In addition to this unique feature, it aims to be a comfortable chatting program.
digup is a console tool to update md5sum or shasum digest files. It will read existing digest files, check the current directory for new, updated, modified, renamed, or deleted files, and query the user with a summary of changes. After reviewing the updates, they can be written back to the digest file. This makes digup very useful to update and verify incremental archives like chronological data storages, which are commonly stored and backed up on hard disks. Using a full file digest scan, even slowly creeping bad blocks on old hard disks can be detected. By using a crontab entry, this check can be performed unattended and routinely.
