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.
Ivman is a flexible userspace volume manager for Linux. Originally an automounter, it can also be used to run arbitrary commands when certain devices are added to or removed from the system, when properties on existing devices change, or when devices emit conditions. Unlike gnome-volume-manager, it runs from a console. It uses D-BUS and HAL to listen for new devices, and uses pmount for mounting.
SimMon is a cross platform monitoring tool which runs on almost any OS that supports the Java Virtual Machine 1.4+. Monitoring is done through the execution of existing monitoring scripts (Perl/VBS) or existing shell commands. Currently monitoring scripts are available for Solaris, Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows based systems. Network devices can be monitored via the integrated SNMPv1 scheduler.
Driver On Demand is an automated driver installation system for Linux that automatically identifies devices that have no drivers and uses an online database to install an appropriate driver for that device without human interaction (if requested). This makes it an ideal system for newbies, as it takes away most of the configuration part of Linux. The goal is to allow users to plug in any device and have it instantly work without the need to manually install drivers.
regionset allows you to check and set the region code of DVD drives. This program was part of the package "dvd_disc_20000215.tar.gz" from Convergence, which is no longer distributed because of the new German copyright law. (The package also contained some CSS and copying related tools.) regionset was separated and all CSS related stuff was removed. This program is needed by everyone with a new DVD drive that doesn't have a region code set, since the drive will only play Video DVDs when the region code has been set once.
Linux device driver for CueCat barcode readers that supports multiple PS/2 CueCats on either the keyboard port, mouse port (without disabling the mouse) or USB port through a PS/2 -> USB adapter, or native USB CueCats. A standalone application that doesn't require the driver and also reads barcodes from a CueCat connected to a serial port through a homemade PS/2 -> serial converter is included as well. The driver separates CueCat barcode scancodes from normal keyboard or mouse scancodes, decode the barcodes, performs error-checking on them and send them in clear text through a normal character device file. NOTE : the company that created the CueCat has disappeared. CueCat readers are no longer produced or distributed.
