PaulA intends to be a (lib)CIM-based administration system for Linux written in Perl. It provides a (very basic) CIM Object Manager (CIMOM), a sample CIM Client for testing purposes, and a repository to store "static" CIM entities. The CIMOM has the ability to communicate with Providers, which supply "dynamic" CIM entities. PaulA doesn't depend on a special distribution, because the Providers have the "knowledge" about the underlying Linux, and they can be exchanged.
Journal is a Perl/CGI script that allows the user to keep a regular log of his/her thoughts. The interface is easy to understand, with only a few buttons to utilize. This journal is fast and able to be viewed and used by both text and graphical browsers. Drawbacks as of now are that it works better if Apache is running (but can be changed if the user can read Perl), and there is no installer. The pieces need to be hand placed (optimal placement in the README.txt), and there is not a Win32 port yet.
thinkpad-status is a GUI interface to IBM ThinkPad laptop setup. It has been tested on IBM ThinkPad Lenovo Z60m. With its simple interface, you can control and change some settings on an IBM ThinkPad laptop, such as CPU power saving and scaling setup. It also lets you check battery status, thermal status, fan speed, ThinkLight settings, and LED status. Some of these features can also be used on other laptops.
Some Things About My Own Server (STAMOS) is a perl script that gathers infomation about the computer is is running on (mainly from /proc) and writes these into an HTML file. This information consists of CPU (name and bogomips), amount of RAM, OS, load averages, currently mounted hard drives, current uptime, and best uptime. The language of the output file can be changed. For finding out the uptime, STAMOS needs uptimed (by Rob Kaper).
The Kraftwurfel is a Linux-based appliance server for use in small organisations, which can be administered with an easy-to-use and good-looking Web interface. The focus of the administration interface is to offer a good chosen subset of the service's features to the administrator. Behind the surface of the Web based administration and user interface is an expandable software architecture build around a database, which holds the all configuration information.
