LILO is a Boot loader for Linux/x86 and other PC operating systems. It is responsible for loading your Linux kernel from either a floppy or a hard drive and passing control to it. It is capable of booting beyond cylinder 1024 of a hard disk if the BIOS supports EDD packet call extensions to the int 0x13 interface. LILO can also be used to boot many other operating systems, including DOS, Windows (all versions), OS/2, and the BSD variants. The LILO distribution includes full source, documentation and support files.
gFTP is a free multithreaded file transfer client for *NIX based machines running X11R6 or later. It has text and GTK+ 1.2/2.x interfaces and supports the FTP, FTPS (control connection only), HTTP, HTTPS, FSP, and SSH protocols and has FTP and HTTP proxy server support. It supports UNIX, EPLF, Novell, MacOS, VMS, MVS, and NT (DOS) style directory listings, and has a bookmarks menu that allows you to quickly connect to remote sites. The code is fully internationalized and there are currently 45 translations available.
COSA and SRP are synchronous serial boards for ISA bus which have two channels. Each channel can be set up to one of the X.21, V.24, V.35 and V.36 hardware interfaces. The Linux kernel driver and user-space tools serve for setting up and using the COSA and SRP boards under Linux. It allows you to use it with the following link-level protocols: Cisco HDLC , synchronous PPP, or as the frame-based character device.
SMSLink implements a client/server gateway to the SMS protocol (short messages on the mobile phones). It requires the use of dedicated hardware (a serial GSM module). Both SMS emission and reception are supported, either in text-mode or in PDU-mode. It also includes an SMS to eMail gateway module. The server runs under Linux and FreeBSD and supports interactive mode via telnet. The command-line client already exists for Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, HP-UX, and Win32. A basic Web interface is also provided.
The rlpr package makes it possible (or at the very least, easier) to print files on remote sites to your local printer. It includes BSD-compatible replacements for `lpr', `lpq', and `lprm', whose functionality is a superset of their BSD counterparts. In other words, with the rlpr package, you can do everything you could do with the BSD printing commands, and more. The programs are all smaller, cleaner, and more portable than their BSD equivalents, and supported on just about any POSIX.1 system.
Treeps is program for Unix/Linux that is designed to make monitoring and interacting with the running programs on your system easy and intuitive. A "real time" tree view shows the relationships between the processes and is color-coded to provide easy interpretation of various values. The process tree displays any combination of users/groups and can be used to drill down into process details and then extract key fields for continuous monitoring. A number of actions can be performed on processes, such as signal, renice, trace, view man page, etc.
Buildkernel is an intelligent shell script that automates the task of building a Linux kernel. For beginning users, it handles the process from beginning to end, prompting the user when they have to do something. Advanced users can use it to build multiple kernels with little effort. Buildkernel will download kernel and pcmcia source, remove unnecessary code, create symlinks, automatically patch the kernel, build the kernel, modules, and pcmcia modules (nicely), and install them to hard disk or floppy, running LILO as necessary.
