cmictl sets some internal parameters of CMI 8338/8738-based sound cards. It allows you to utilize the S/PDIF out of your card. cmictl can control S/PDIF-in, S/PDIF-out, S/PDIF-loop, S/PDIF-monitor (SPDIF-in to Analog-out), S/PDIF-out voltage (5V / 0.5V), and S/PDIF frequency (48kHz / 44kHz). Some parameters are only available on CMI8738-based cards.
Dummynet is a flexible tool originally designed for testing networking protocols, and since then (mis) used for bandwidth management. It simulates/enforces queue and bandwidth limitations, delays, packet losses, and multipath effects. It also implements a variant of Weighted Fair Queueing called WF2Q+. It can be used on user's workstations, or on FreeBSD machines acting as routers or bridges.
BLAST is a set of similarity search programs designed to explore all of the available sequence databases regardless of whether the query is protein or DNA. It uses a heuristic algorithm which seeks local as opposed to global alignments, and is therefore able to detect relationships among sequences which share only isolated regions of similarity. It can be run locally as a full executable, and can be used to run BLAST searches against private, local databases, or downloaded copies of the NCBI databases. It runs on Mac OS, Win32, LINUX, Solaris, IBM AIX, SGI, Compaq OSF, and HP- UX systems.
Turn-Key Linux Audio is a scripted installation package for the core set of linux audio applications used at the Eastman Computer Music Center (ECMC). It includes many tools including powerful shell scripts, smart aliases, tutorials, documentation, shell-level environment variables for multi-media workstations, and a library of powerful templates and macros for Csound, Score11, SMS, PVC, Rt, and Vspace.
Swiss-PdbViewer is an application that provides a user friendly interface for analyzing several proteins at the same time. The proteins can be superimposed in order to deduce structural alignments and to compare their active sites or any other relevant parts. Amino acid mutations, H- bonds, angles, and distances between atoms are easy to obtain with the intuitive graphic and menu interface.
iVideo is multitrack video editing software, created in Cocoa (Objective-C) and using QuickTime. It was developed for all general video purposes, and to include all of the features of QuickTime Pro and iMovie. It is almost complete; you can import video from digital cameras (using FireWire) or from any QuickTime format supported file, then edit, modify, and mix them, and apply any video effect on or between them. You can then export them to any QuickTime supported format.
ffmpegX is a Mac OS X GUI designed to easily operate more than 20 powerful Unix open-source video and audio processing tools, including ffmpeg, mpeg2enc, and mencoder (the MPEG-4 encoder with subtitles support). ffmpegX includes a bitrate calculator, a video player, and a series of video tools which can split, join, or fix video, compress a DVD to 4GB, author many VCD/SVCD images into one DVD image, and convert SRT subtitles to DVD Studio Pro 1.5 format.
Romeo provides remote control of a Mac via Bluetooth and a compatible mobile device, allowing the user to control such programs as iTunes, DVD Player, and presentation applications. A mobile phone can be used as a mouse, a volume control, or a method of telling the machine when the user's there.
NFS Manager is a small tool that provides easy access to the NFS features of Mac OS X. As an operating system with a Unix core, Mac OS X is able to support the Network File System (NFS) protocol. NFS is the accepted industry standard for sharing files between Unix systems. Although NFS is a built-in component of Mac OS X, users cannot access this feature without special knowledge and use of the command-line. NFS Manager solves this problem by providing an easy-to-use Aqua interface for the definition of NFS connections.
iTerm is a terminal emulation program written using Cocoa. The letter i represents a native Apple look and feel of the program interface, and an emphasis on complete international support. It provides multiple tabs within one window, support for Applescript, transparent windows and custom background pictures, Rendezvous support, and support for all language encodings that are available with OS X.
The NAS Parallel Benchmarks (NPB) are a small set of programs designed to help evaluate the performance of parallel supercomputers. The benchmarks, which are derived from computational fluid dynamics (CFD) applications, consist of five kernels and three pseudo-applications. The NPB come in several flavors. NAS solicits performance results for each from all sources.
OpenJMS is an implementation of Sun Microsystems's Java Message Service API 1.1 specification. It features point-to-point and publish-subscribe messaging models, guaranteed delivery of messages, synchronous and asynchronous message delivery, persistence using JDBC, local transactions, message filtering using SQL92-like selectors, authentication, an administration GUI, XML-based configuration files, in-memory and database garbage collection, automatic client disconnection detection, applet support, and more.
this is great news
this is really a great news, such a CD will
make it much easier for free software to spread
around the world,
and I hope this will give one of the best
MacOS opensource compilation of the web.
macos X, not to be disturbed by the screen saver
I'm using MPlayer successfully on my Mac,
really much more optimised than Quicktime.
The only drawback I have is: When looking
at a film, the Mac doesn't notice that you're looking
something, and the screen dimmer is activated when you have not pressed a key since much time,
and then, goes to sleep if nothing is done.
Quicktime does not have this drawback, so
I presume it's related to an event that should be
added in code to get the right behaviour.
Could someone point me in the right direction
to help doing a patch ?
