Clonezilla is a partition or disk cloning tool similar to Symantec Ghost. It saves and restores only blocks in use on the hard drive if the file system is supported. For unsupported file systems, dd is used instead. It has been used to clone a 5 GB system to 40 clients in about 10 minutes.
Diskless Remote Boot in Linux (DRBL) provides a diskless or systemless environment for client machines. It works on Debian, Mandriva, Red Hat, Fedora, and SuSE. Unlike LTSP, it uses distributed hardware resources and makes it possible for clients to fully access local hardware. It also includes Clonezilla, a partitioning and disk cloning utility similar to Symantec Ghost.
xdata implements an interface to arbitrary key-value pairs which are accessible to simple shell and Perl programs. Applications for this include to-do lists, contact databases, browser bookmarks, and anything else which requires small pieces of data to be referenced by keys. xdata stores timestamps for the data it manages, and comes with a program to synchronise databases among cooperating hosts. This allows you to propagate information among hosts in a transparent fashion (creations, updates, and deletes are correctly handled). xdata consists of a set of shell-level utilities and a Perl module.
va (virtual administration) is a console based script for the administration of virtual Web, mail, and DNS servers for multiple domains hosted on one or two Linux machines. It configures the standard (suse) Linux servers, and allows you to make changes to the configuration files. It will configure the following servers: Web server, apache with virtual hosts (create and remove domains) ftp server, set up ftp upload accounts mail server, and bind (set up primary and secondary name servers).
@1 Auto Delete deletes all files (in a specific directory) with dates older than the specified number of days. It can be useful if you have pages generated through user's input. It can be run manually from a browser, through telnet, or automatically using crontab. There are only two variables to edit - the directory, and the file age.
pts-console-hu is a collection of fonts, keyboard layouts, and scripts that provide a good font (in several sizes) and several good keyboard layouts with the Euro key for the Linux virtual console (text mode and framebuffer). The package also provides Hungarian keyboard layouts for X11.
Lokiwall is a firewall script for Linux. In addition to the standard function of easily limiting network traffic, it features dual routing (using two Internet connections simultaniously), connection fail-over, load balancing, traffic control, advanced masquerading, advanced DNAT, and advanced marking (to direct specific traffic to a certain interface). The advanced features require some kernel patches. The standard features will work on a default Linux system with iptables and iproute2.
UNIforge is a Web-based software hosting system that supports collaborative development. Its features include issue tracking, version control via Subversion or CVS, and mailing lists. It is possible to host projects and assign members to these projects, with full control over their permissions. A plugin system allows easy writing of extensions for UNIforge.
Sshbak is very simple but powerful and secure remote backup utility. It performs a fast and comprehensible daily (usually) backup of multiple machines via remote SSH connections. The result is a simple set of tar+gzip files. It supports the backup of piped program output (allowing remote backup of mysqldump or pg_dumpall results), parallel backup of different machines, and more.
