It will set up the "fetchmail" mail client, the "mutt" or "pine" mail readers, and the "tin" or "slrn" news readers. The script will prompt you for your username, password, and email address. You need to have the "dialog" program installed to run mnsetup.

easyRPM is a package management tool for RPM-based Linux distributions. It lets you explore packages that are installed on your computer, located on your hard disk, CD, or on the Web. You can easily find packages by any criterion (name, size, feature, file, description). An XML-based query language is supported. You may choose packages to install or remove, and easyRPM will try to resolve all dependencies. It will download required packages from the Internet. easyRPM can read header information from rpm files, yum XML files, or hdlist files.
SuSE-Get is a small tool for downloading packages for the SuSE distribution from SuSE's FTP server. It is most handy when you don't have the CDs around or are working on a remote server. It supports searching for filenames (e.g., you can tell it to install Apache, and it will ask whether you would like to install apache-1.3 or apache2-2.0). It does not support dependency checking, but for everyone who knows how to use the RPM command, it will be very handy.
Clusters and server farms often have many nodes and very little hardware support for locating and diagnosing problems, especially if the problem involves the network interface. Helpme is a small stand-alone program that allows a node to use the standard PC speaker, both to signal that a problem has been detected and to render arbitrary alphanumeric text using either Morse code or the NATO phonetic alphabet. The input syntax allows repeating messages and more.
The HP Linux Common Operating Environment (LinuxCOE) is a global engineering program which facilitates provisioning and lifecycle support of Linux systems. Key deliverables are to increase reliability, availability, maintainability, and performance of global infrastructure and production environments by maintaining a minimum number of platform and component configurations.
Gentoo Category Select is a graphical tool for selecting Gentoo Package Categories to exclude from your local package repository. It does so by weaning information from multiple directories and files for convenience, as well as providing warning about categories that should not be excluded due to currently installed packages. This is achieved without the addition of a configuration file. Currently only the Qt front-end is finished. It is modularly designed for ease in creating front-ends based on other toolkits. The advantages are saved disk space (small/MMV), quicker rsync time (small/MMV), and a lessening of bandwidth requirements by gentoo.org and its mirrors.
Web Domain Manager is a script to automate setting up and deleting domains from a server. It uses a backend script that runs every minute from cron, checks a MySQL database for updates, and installs or deletes domains from the server as needed. There are three frontends for this script: administrator, reseller, and end user. They can be used to administer a server or server farm, or a user can make small changes to his own domain. This script is made to work with Apache, PHP, and qmail with vpopmail.
