lsb-fhs tests the Filesystem Hierarchy aspects of the Linux Standard Base. The V1.0 and V2.1-X tests correspond to FHS2.0 and FHS2.1, respectively, and are now obsolete. The V2.2-X tests correspond to the FHS2.2 specification. The 2.2 tests are the current tests used for LSB 1.3 certification. The V2.3-X tests correspond to the FHS 2.3 specification and will replace the V2.2 tests for LSB 2.x certification. The V2.3 tests have yet to be formally approved by the LSB test team.
DigiTemp uses a simple serial port adapter to read temperatures from the Dallas Semiconductor 1-Wire DS1820 digital temperature sensors. It supports the DS9097-U adapter, supports DS2409 based 1-Wire hubs, and features a 1-Wire walk that will display all devices on the LAN, not just temperature sensors.
distributed.net is a loosely knit group of computer users from all of the world that is taking up challenges requiring lots of computing power (most notably the RC5, DES, and OGR cracking contests). It is simple to participate in the challenges by downloading and running their client software (which uses idle CPU time to complete its tasks).
pkgbuild is a graphical development environment for Red Hat's RPM packaging format. It is designed to allow easy building and testing of RPM SPEC files. This is in the hope that more people will build and distribute quality RPMs. If your new to RPM it is important to note, you don't have to write an application to package it. You can package and redistribute any free software that the license allows open distribution.
cthumb allows you to create Web albums of digital pictures with thumbnails, captions, and several different views of the collection, including (optionally) several languages and resolutions. An album is composed of a series of pages, each composed of a collection of pictures. You can have several annotations per picture, and can customize almost everything in the way the albums look on the screen.
Pipo-BBS allows you to install a BBS server and clients. You can chat via a nice interface with an unlimited number of people (as with IRC). This software is in a pre-release state; it is still very alpha, and can be difficult to even compile. It works under linux, MkLinux, SGI, HP-UX, and Solaris. The only interface for this BBS is telnet for the moment; an interface using GTK has been started. It has been translated into French, English, Spanish and German.
