Dxr2 Resource Center is a community focus point for the Creative Dxr2 DVD decoder card. Creative Dxr2 drivers for Linux, and other platforms are actively being developed, as well as a multitude of other programs, drivers, documentation, etc. The Website is the home of the Creative Dxr2 drivers (dxr2-driver). Included is a script for compiling the Dxr2 drivers, as well as various components (dxr2install), a Dxr2 plugin for the XINE media player (xine-plugin), and other projects related to the Dxr2 decoder card.
The "EeePC-optimized Kernel for Ubuntu" project aims to produce a set of pre-compiled kernel packages that have been specially tailored to the EeePC's hardware and power usage, and to deliver these packages on a dedicated repository hosted by the author. Delivering these kernel packages over a Debian-style repository ensures that future updates and patches can be automatically downloaded to your EeePC as they're released. Current support is available for Ubuntu v8.04 (Hardy Heron) on the EeePC 700, 900, 900A, 901, 1000, and 1000H models.
Ejecter is a little tool that makes it possible to unmount external devices and eject CD-ROMs without having to right-click on the device icon (either on the desktop or in Nautilus). It sits in the background and shows an icon in the system tray when one or more peripherals are connected to your PC: once clicked, a window appears with the list of the devices (volume name and device type, and much clearer than the similar thing available on Windows) and the related eject button. Being written in Vala, it is translated into C code and then compiled. This means that it's lightweight and consumes little memory, does not require a full VM like Python, and has no strange requirements to run (just GLib/GTK).
Endpoint turns a Linux machine with one or more FireWire cards into an SBP-2 device. One can use any physical block device or file (disc image) as storage. With multiple clients, each can potentially access the SBP-2 devices from a unique FireWire bus and utilize the full bandwidth of that bus.
