Nhopkg is a lightweight and powerful package manager system for Unix-like operating systems. Nhopkg can install, remove, update, search, and manage software packages in its own .nho format. Nhopkg aims to be a universal package manager. Because of this, Nhopkg isn't only a package manager, but is also a set of guidelines to pack up software for any machine. Therefore, to check package dependencies, Nhopkg searches for specific files instead of package names.
DIASER is a cloud storage class combined geo-data replication, long-term archive system, and WAN vault application. Manage long term mixed data archives generated by existing backup software. Ensure availability using commodity hardware. Retain administrative and financial control. It combines a disk-based backup volume management system and triple redundancy with a storage architecture designed to structure months to years of long term sustainable archiving space. It is a quick and low-cost way to make an environment more robust by backing up data in multiple places. This replication also provides fast retrieval of archived data from all node hosting locations. A Perl installer creates the system. Nodes can be dedicated to storage or used for existing services over unused bandwidth. DIASER works in user space over SSH.
The rPath Appliance Agent (rAA) is an extensible application framework for the administration of appliance devices through a Web-based user interface. The framework is comprised of individual component plugins which offer specialized functionality, such as a message log interface, user account preferences, system updates, and entitlement management capabilities. You can also develop and add plugins to the rAA framework, extending capabilities and functionality for your specific requirements.
This is the "progress" utility from NetBSD, ported to Linux and Solaris. The progress utility allows the file I/O of progresses to be monitored. It includes support for gzip-compressed files, so "progress -z -f file.tar.gz tar xf -" would show the progress of extracting file.tar.gz.
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.
deb-install is a command line tool that can install or show information about packages and files in several different formats. Whenever a program is installed using deb-install, it is converted into a .deb package beforehand, and thus can be removed with a simple "apt-get remove <name>". It currently supports apt-get, .deb, .rpm, .dsc, and .tar/.zip (source archives). Compression via gzip or bzip2 is handled automatically. If a needed tool is missing, deb-install asks whether it should install it.
Simple Perl Package Manager tracks the files added or deleted from a system by using "find". It can detect modified files using installwatch, make backups of modified or deleted files, and remove, list, or make a tarball of a package. It records MD5 checksums of all installed files and includes a script to verify them and check other attributes of a package.
XPKGTOOL is a GUI front-end for pkgtools that allows you to manage, install, remove, and upgrade packages with ease, through a nice and user friendly X-based interface. It comes with a built-in update manager, called SlackGrade, that will help you to keep your Slackware system up to date, checking, downloading, and upgrading the system with the latest packages available from the main Slackware distribution sources on the Web.
gnome-pkgtool is a GTK+/GNOME front-end to Slackware package management tools (pkgtool). You can install/uninstall/upgrade .tgz packages, build packages from source and install them, and inspect package content. It relies on the installpkg(8) and removepkg(8) tools for installing and uninstalling packages, and on checkinstall for building packages from source.
