Kernel TCP Virtual Server is a Layer-7 switching software in the Linux Virtual Server framework. It can do application-level load balancing (such as content-based scheduling) inside the Linux kernel. The reason for implementing it inside the kernel is to avoid the overhead of context switching and memory copying between user-space and kernel-space. Although the its scalability is lower than that of IPVS (IP Virtual Server), it is flexible, because the content of the request is known before the request is redirected to the real server.
dmassage uses the information in a BSD system's dmesg to gather information about the system's hardware devices and present this information in a tree-like hierarchy. This information can then be used to build a more efficient kernel that only contains support for devices that are actually present. It can also be used to disable probes for absent devices, thus speeding up the boot process.
GENDIST (the Linux Distribution Generator) allows you to easily create your own special distribution. It creates a makefile-based build system for your distribution, and helps you to automate the following three tasks: maintaining your root filesystem, maintaining your "CD filesystem" (in case you create a bootable CD), and packaging everything on media.
The Familiar Project is composed of a group of loosely knit developers all contributing to creating the next generation of PDA OS. Currently, most of our development time is being put towards producing a stable, and full featured Linux distribution for the Compaq/HP iPAQ series of handheld computers, as well as apps to run on top of the distribution.
