Xmmix is an audio mixer utility for the X window system using the OSF/Motif interface. It works with the Linux sound driver as well as any UNIX system running the Open Sound System (OSS) driver. Xmmix is user-friendly and has the ability to save/retrieve mixer settings to/from files.
StonX is an Atari ST emulator for X. It support many Atari apps, and runs very fast even on low-end machines (sub P75). It currently runs the standard Atari screen modes as well as expanded full screen. It is very portable and has successfully been used on Alpha workstations, Silicon Graphics workstations, HP PA-RISC systems, RS/6000 with AIX, proprietary systems by Siemens, PCs with FreeBSD, Suns with Solaris and SunOS, and others.
Xmcd is a full-featured CD player and ripper software suite including xmcd and cda. Both utilities transform your CD drive into a stereo CD player, allowing you to play music CDs on your computer, as well as perform digital audio extraction (DAE) into files or streams of various formats. Multi-disc CD changers are also supported on many platforms. Xmcd features CDDB disc recognition, web browser integration for content related to the playing CD, local discography management, full feature-specific help system, remote control capability, and more.
WPP is a small perl5 script that allows preprocessing of HTML files. It allows you to define "variables", which are brief abbreviations for longer constructs, and include common HTML fragments. It's useful for giving a uniform layout to different HTML pages. It can be used in cgi-bin programs for automatic generation of pages. With less HTML code inside you can make more flexible cgi-scripts.
The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture is composed of several parts. The first is a fully modularized sound driver which supports module autoloading, devfs, isapnp autoconfiguration, and gives complete access to analog audio, digital audio, control, mixer, synthesizer, DSP, MIDI, and timer components of audio hardware. It also includes a fully-featured kernel-level sequencer, a full compatibility layer for OSS/Free applications, an object-oriented C library which covers and enhances the ALSA kernel driver functionality for applications (client/server, plugins, PCM sharing/multiplexing, PCM metering, etc.), an interactive configuration program for the driver, and some simple utilities for basic management.
Ident2 is an alternative approach to auth/ident services. It was written from the ground up and can run either as a child handler of inetd or as a standalone daemon with no user intervention. Users can set their own replies or toggle random replies, all at the system administrator's preference, of course. Full compliance with RFC1413 is attempted.
Rain's PPP scripts simplify the use and setup of pppd. Features include connection time logging, a ppp-off that works right with more than one pppd running, dial-on-demand support for pppd 2.3.x., and more. Another interesting feature is that the scripts keep track of your connect speed and time, and included is an mirc script to show connection status from a remote machine, as well as a shell script that works for *IX boxes.
Yard is a suite of Perl scripts for creating rescue disks (also called bootdisks) for Linux. A rescue disk is a self-contained Linux kernel and filesystem on a floppy, usually used when you can't (or don't want to) boot off your hard disk. A rescue disk usually contains utilities for diagnosing and manipulating hard disks and filesystems.
KBACKUP is intended for handling of backups no matter whether they reside on disk or tape or even in files. As most other backup programs available today are either confusing the user with lots of long command line options, or user friendly but not powerful at all, the aim behind writing KBACKUP was to provide a user friendly yet powerful backup program. It is also intended to be kept compatible to existing and well proven archive formats, so you can restore your archives even if you should not have KBACKUP around anymore.
bttvgrab is a program for grabbing video sequences using a bt848-based frame grabber card (e.g. Hauppauge WinTV, Miro PCTV...). The goal of bttvgrab is to provide high-quality grabbing suitable for video recording. Currently, this is accomplished by trying hard not to leave out a single frame, and to catch temproary delays by buffering several frames. In the future, synchronized sound will be part of it. Then you can create mpeg movies using mpeg2enc, the output files will be prepared for that, so that the conversion can be done by a simple shell script.
