c2ctl is a frequency and voltage modification utility mainly intended for Intel Core 2 and Core CPUs. It should also work for other CPUs (namely processors with SpeedStep). The utility can also enable SpeedStep (e.g. if it was disabled by the BIOS due to overclocking) and read out frequency and voltage information. The main purpose of c2ctl is overclocking or "undervolting" and to enable SpeedStep.
k10ctl is a P-State utility for AMD family 10h (aka K10) processors. It can modify the P-States, i.e. alter processor and the northbridge frequencies and voltages, set or change the P-State, and read out frequency and voltage information. The main purpose of k10ctl is overclocking or "undervolting" the CPU and to configure Cool'n'Quiet settings.
SImg is a software for astronomical image processing. It contains a tool for visualization of highly dynamic images. The package consists of a library and applications which use it. Some of the features are deconvolution (various methods), Video4Linux support, PSF computation, approximation by linear combination of images and polynoms, various color transforms, automatic shifting of image sets (for addition and color composition), and more.
vfp (video for Pascal) is a Freepascal interface to video4linux. This package contains the unit videodev.pas (similar to videodev.h) and an object-oriented version which supplies the different functionalities via plugins. vfp also supports special video cameras modified for long time integration. vfp is a subpackage of the SImg software.
ztex is a firmware Kit with a corresponding Driver API which is especially designed for the ZTEX Modules but which should work with all other EZ-USB based hardware. The Firmware Kit is written in C and assembled using a powerful macro processor. This allows you to specify all required settings using by a few commands. The necessary USB descriptors and the descriptor handling routines are generated automatically. The package runs under Linux and Windows (porting to other operating systems should be no problem). The Java driver API allows the development of platform-independent device drivers.
Re: root Fixed now, it was a problem with the SysV IPC permissions. (Use the latest CVS version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/simg/)
