Instant Boot Server allows you to set up a Debian GNU/Linux chroot environment and install a TFTP boot server onto it. Three "boot methods" are provided, one for providing the clients with the Debian Installer, one for providing an NFS root, and one for testing/playing with custom-built kernels and initrd images. The boot server is started and stopped on demand. The main program (shell script) is extensible, and may be used to serve as a platform for adding other server types.
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.
Urpkg is software to install programs in a safe and undoable way. It is able to see what files any given installation command creates, and list and remove them. You are able to restrict the installation command so that it only writes where you allow it to, and does not overwrite files from other packages. Urpkg is especially useful if you want to install programs from source, or create binary packages in an automated way. Under the hood, urpkg creates a user for each package it has to install, which prevents the installation command from run with root privileges. It can be seen as a "command tracer" that remembers what files a command created and prevents it from doing forbidden things. It is written in C but relies on some external commands, like GNU Find.
UnusedPkg is a diagnostic tool to search the oldest unused packages in your Linux system. UnusedPkg prints a sorted list with the size and number of days that a package has been idle. This helps you determine what packages can be manually removed to clean the system. It supports any apt-based distribution (tested on Debian and Ubuntu) and Slackware.
dpkg-du is a script to produce a dump of the installed size of Debian packages in du format. This is to enable ease of reuse with pre-existing scripts administrators may have to deal with 'du' format lists. For example, dpkg-du|sort -n|tail -10 will show the 10 biggest packages on your system.
A.M.I.C.U.S. (Automatic Multimedia Installation Configuration Utility System) helps users quickly and easily install and configure MythTV on generic PC hardware. It uses the Debian Netinst CD to install GNU/Linux and just the required packages to allow a functional MythTV on low end hardware.
