Depot is a software management tool providing a simple, yet flexible, mechanism for maintaining third party and locally developed software in large heterogeneous computing environments. Depot integrates separately maintained software packages, known as collections, into a common directory hierarchy consisting of a union of all the collections. This common directory is defined as the software environment. A set of configuration options manages interactions and intersections between collections in the environment. Depot facilitates the introduction, update, and removal of collections in a software environment. Custom environments and complete test environments can be easily created for individual machines or for sets of machines. Collections with unexpected problems can be replaced with previous versions or simply removed. Individual collections or files can be moved from remote filesystems to the local disks of workstations without the worry that the files may become stale. All this is achieved with minimal wasted disk space and administrative overhead.
Libckpt is a portable checkpointing tool for Unix. It provides a mechanism for enabling fault-tolerance for long-running programs. Libckpt implements most optimizations that have been proposed to improve the performance of checkpointing. Additionally, it implements "user-directed" checkpointing, a new optimization unique to Libckpt.
The libsrtp library is an open-source implementation of the Secure Real-time Transport Protocol (SRTP) from Cisco Systems, Inc. SRTP is a security profile for RTP that adds confidentiality, message authentication, and replay protection to that protocol. It is specified in RFC 3711.
The Linux CD-ROM Game System shows you how to create bootable CD-ROMs that are designed for playing a single game that runs under Linux. The CD-ROM contains only the game to be played and the minimal Linux installation necessary to play it. Using one of these CD-ROMs makes a PC resemble a consumer game console. The PC used does not need to have Linux installed.
The SR-RTP library enables real-time streaming applications (such as streaming MPEG-4 video) to cope with packet loss, variable bandwidth, and variable delay on the Internet. It provides a means for selective retransmission of lost packets in a fashion that is backwards-compatible with RTP. Additionally, it provides integration with the Congestion Manager to provide a system capable of performing TCP- friendly streaming of real-time data.
XMX is a standalone utility for sharing an X Window System session on multiple X displays. It allows users to see and interact with the same applications at the same time from different locations. XMX takes advantage of the networked nature of the X Window System by acting as an intermediary between X clients and X servers. In this way, XMX works with any X clients and any X servers, without the need to modify either. The shared client applications appear to each participant in a virtual root window which is subject to local window management.
