EzRPM takes one or more RPM packages as parameters and installs them handling all dependencies by installing additional RPMs as necessary. These RPMs are located by scanning all directories in the original list of RPMs to be installed, and by scanning the paths in the RPMPATH environment variable.
FAI (fully automatic installation) is a non-interactive system to install a Debian GNU/Linux operating system on a group of PCs or a Linux cluster. After installation, the systems are fully configured and ready to run. It is a scalable method for performing unattended installation and updating. Changes to the configuration files of the operating system are made by cfengine, shell, and Perl scripts.
Fairsched is a hierarchical fair CPU scheduler. Processes are divided into groups and each group receives guaranteed CPU time allocation proportional to its weight. The standard scheduler is used to schedule processes within a group. It can be used to divide CPU time fairly among users or for more flexible CPU time allocation on busy computing servers.
Fake has been designed to switch in backup servers on a LAN. It has been used to success over the last year to switch in backup Mail, Web and Proxy servers during periods of both unscheduled and scheduled down time. Fake allows you to take over the IP address of another machine in the LAN by bringing up an additional interface and making use of ARP spoofing. The additional interface can be either a physical interface or an IP alias.
fam++ is a C++ wrapper for fam, which uses imon or DNotify (Linux 2.4.x) to inform it when inodes change (the net effect being that applications can register interest in a file, and have events send to the application when the file changes). Fam++ also integrates with gdk and Loki to make creation of C++ GTK+/GNOME apps simpler.
The Faq-O-Matic is a CGI-based system that automates the process of maintaining a FAQ (or Frequently Asked Questions list). It allows visitors to your FAQ to take part in keeping it up-to-date. A permission system also makes it useful as a help-desk application, bug-tracking database, or documentation system.
