3 a2ps 4.14 GNU a2ps is an Any to PostScript filter. Of course it processes plain text files, but also pretty prints quite a few popular languages. Its slogan is precisely “ Do The Right Thing ”, which means that though it is highly configurable, everything was made so that a novice user can do complicated PostScript manipulations. For instance, it has the ability to delegate the processing of some files to other filters (such as groff, texi2dvi, dvips, gzip etc.), what allows a uniform treatment (n-up, page selection, duplex etc.) of heterogeneous files.
4 aaa_base 9 SUSE LINUX Enterprise Server 9 for x86. This package installs several important configuration files. Central scripts like SuSEconfig are also in this package.
5 aalib 1.4rc4 AAlib is an portable ascii art GFX library. If you wish to see some examples of AAlib technology, please browse AA-project homepage.

17 amarok 2.4.3 Amarok ( /??m?r?k/)[2] is a free software music player for Linux and other varieties of Unix, as well as Windows since version 2.0 (through KDE for Windows). It makes use of the KDE Platform, but is released independently of the central KDE Software Compilation release cycle.
18 amarok-xine 1.3 Package is obsolete (subpackage of amarok) This package provides the xine engine for amaroK, which you may prefer for some reason over the other engines (e.g., it is the lightest engine Dependency-wise).
19 amavisd-new 2.6.6 amavisd-new is a high-performance interface between mailer (MTA) and content checkers: virus scanners, and/or SpamAssassin. It is written in Perl for maintainability, without paying a significant price for speed. It talks to MTA via (E)SMTP or LMTP, or by using helper programs. Best with Postfix, fine with dual-sendmail setup and Exim v4, works with sendmail/milter, or with any MTA as a SMTP relay. For Courier and qmail MTA integration there is a patch in the distributed package.
20 ami n/a Not shipped this since RHEL 3 The Amazon Linux AMI is a supported and maintained Linux image provided by Amazon Web Services for use on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).

43 apmd 3.2.2-14 Utilities for Advanced Power Management (APM) On laptop computers, the Advanced Power Management (APM) support provides access to battery status information and may help you to conserve battery power, depending on your laptop and the APM implementation. The apmd program also lets you run arbitrary programs when APM events happen (for example, you can eject PCMCIA devices when you suspend, or change hard drive timeouts when you connect the battery). This package contains apmd(8), a daemon for logging and acting on APM events; and apm(1), a client that prints the information in /proc/apm in a readable format. apmd is notified of APM events by the APM driver in the kernel. Recent Debian kernels are built with APM support but it is disabled by default. You need to boot the kernel with the “apm=on” option if you want to enable the driver. (You may need to add this option to your lilo command line.)
44 apparmor-parser n/a The AppArmor Parser is a userlevel program that is used to load in program profiles to the AppArmor Security kernel module.
This package is part of a suite of tools that used to be named SubDomain.
45 apparmor-utils 2.5.1 This package provides the aa-logprof, aa-genprof, aa-autodep, aa-enforce, and aa-complain tools to assist with profile authoring. Besides it provides the aa-unconfined server information tool and the aa-eventd event reporting system. It is part of a suite of tools that used to be named SubDomain.
46 apr 1.3.12 The mission of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) project is to create and maintain software libraries that provide a predictable and consistent interface to underlying platform-specific implementations. The primary goal is to provide an API to which software developers may code and be assured of predictable if not identical behaviour regardless of the platform on which their software is built, relieving them of the need to code special-case conditions to work around or take advantage of platform-specific deficiencies or features.
47 argus 2.0.6.fixes.1 Argus is an IP transaction auditing tool that categorizes IP packets which match the boolean expression into a protocol-specific network transaction model. Argus reports on the transactions that it discovers, as they occur. Designed to run as a daemon, argus generally reads packets directly from a network interface, and writes the transaction status information to a log file or open socket connected to an argus client (such as ra(1)). Argus can also read packet information from tcpdump(1) , snoop(1) or NLANR’s Moat Time Sequence Header raw packet files. Argus can also be configured to write its transaction logs to stdout. Argus provides access control for its socket connection facility using tcp_wrapper technology. Please refer to the tcp_wrapper distribution for a complete description.
48 argus-client argus-client: IP network transaction auditing tool argus is a network transaction auditing tool that allows the user to easily classify connections using tcpdump(1) compliant expressions. Argus runs as an application level daemon, promiscuously reading network datagrams from a specified interface, and generates network traffic audit records for the network activity that it encounters. Auditing records can be used to ensure that access control policies are being enforced, identify network problems such as denial of service attacks and more. This package contains the client programs for the argus server. Please see the package argus-server for the appropriate server. From Debian 3.0r0 APT
49 arptables_jf 0.0.8 The arptables_jf utility controls the arpfilter network packet filtering code in the Linux kernel. You do not need this program for normal network firewalling. If you need to manually control which arp requests and/or replies this machine accepts and sends, you should install this package.
50 arpwatch 2.1a15 arpwatch is a computer software tool for monitoring Address Resolution Protocol traffic on a computer network. It generates a log of observed pairing of IP addresses with MAC addresses along with a timestamp when the pairing appeared on the network.
51 arts 1.5.10 aRts simulates a complete “modular analog synthesizer” on your – digital – computer. Create sounds & music using small modules like oscillators for creating waveforms, various filters, modules for playing data on your speakers, mixers, faders,… You can build your complete setup with the GUI of the system, using the modules – generators, effects and output – connected to each other.
52 Ash
53 aspell GNU Aspell is a Free and Open Source spell checker designed to eventually replace Ispell. It can either be used as a library or as an independent spell checker. Its main feature is that it does a superior job of suggesting possible replacements for a misspelled word than just about any other spell checker out there for the English language. Unlike Ispell, Aspell can also easily check documents in UTF-8 without having to use a special dictionary. Aspell will also do its best to respect the current locale setting. Other advantages over Ispell include support for using multiple dictionaries at once and intelligently handling personal dictionaries when more than one Aspell process is open at once.
54 astl 2.3.5r1 Android Stream I/O library
55 at 3.1.13 at and batch read commands from standard input or a specified file which are to be executed at a later time, using the shell set by the user’s environment variable SHELL, the user’s login shell, or ultimately /bin/sh.
56 atftp 0.7 atftp is a client/server implementation of the TFTP protocol that implements RFCs 1350, 2090, 2347, 2348, and 2349. The server is multi-threaded and the client presents a friendly interface using libreadline. The current server implementation lacks IPv6 support.
57 atk 2.2.0 ATK – Provides a set of interfaces for accessibility. The ATK library provides a set of interfaces for accessibility.By supporting the ATK interfaces, an application or toolkit canbe used such as tools such as screen readers, magnifiers, and alternative input devices.
58 at-poke 0.2.3 at-poke is another tool that can activate things using the same API (at-spi) that GOK and other software uses. Knowing the behavior at-poke causes helps to improve software. at-poke can be a very handy tool for diagnosing accessibility issues.
59 at-spi 1.32.0 at-spi’ is a part of the Gnome Accessibility Project. It provides a Service Provider Interface for the Assistive Technologies available on the GNOME platform, and a library against which applications can be linked.
60 attr 2.4.46 Extended attributes are name:value pairs associated permanently with files and directories, similar to the environment strings associated with a process. An attribute may be defined or undefined. If it is defined, its value may be empty or non-empty. Extended attributes are extensions to the normal attributes which are associated with all inodes in the system (i.e. the stat(2) data). They are often used to provide additional functionality to a filesystem – for example, additional security features such as Access Control Lists (ACLs) may be implemented using extended attributes.
61 audiofile 0.2.7 The Audio File Library handles reading and writing audio files in many common formats.

Key goals of the Audio File Library are file format transparency and data format transparency. The same calls for opening a file, accessing and manipulating audio metadata (e.g. sample rate, sample format, textual information, MIDI parameters), and reading and writing sample data will work with any supported audio file format. Likewise, the format of the audio data presented to the application need not be tied to the format of the data contained in the file.

62 audit 2.1.3 The answer is to use 2.6 kernel?s audit system. Modern Linux kernel (2.6.x) comes with auditd daemon. It?s responsible for writing audit records to the disk. During startup, the rules in /etc/audit.rules are read by this daemon. You can open /etc/audit.rules file and make changes such as setup audit file log location and other option. The default file is good enough to get started with auditd.
63 audit-libs 2.1.3 The audit-libs package contains the dynamic libraries needed for applications to use the audit framework.
64 authconfig 6.1.16 An interface for configuring system authentication resources.
65 autoconf 2.68 Autoconf is an extensible package of M4 macros that produce shell scripts to automatically configure software source code packages. These scripts can adapt the packages to many kinds of UNIX-like systems without manual user intervention. Autoconf creates a configuration script for a package from a template file that lists the operating system features that the package can use, in the form of M4 macro calls. Producing configuration scripts using Autoconf requires GNU M4. You should install GNU M4 (at least version 1.4.6, although 1.4.13 or later is recommended) before configuring Autoconf, so that Autoconf’s configure script can find it. The configuration scripts produced by Autoconf are self-contained, so their users do not need to have Autoconf (or GNU M4).
66 autofs 5.0.6 Automounters are available on most unices (at least on all, that I tried). They provide access to file systems on demand, i.e. they mount a filesystem when it is needed and unmount it when it is not needed.
67 automake 1.11.1 Automake is a tool for automatically generating `’ files compliant with the GNU Coding Standards. Automake requires the use of Autoconf.
68 autorun 3.17 Autorun automagically recognises all available CDROMs in your system, mounts them upon insertion and executes a possible ‘autorun’ executable on the CD. To allow an ordinary user to do this you have to add the options user,exec in /etc/fstab to the CDROMs you want to use.
69 autoyast2 SUSE Automatic Linux Installation and Configuration with YaST2.
70 autoyast2-installation
71 avahi 0.6.30 Avahi allows programs to publish and discover services and hosts running on a local network with no specific configuration. For example, a user can plug their computer into a network and Avahi automatically finds printers to print to, files to look at and people to talk to, as well as advertising the network services running on the machine.
72 avalon-framework 4.3 Avalon-Framework is a small but vital jar file distributed by the Avalon project, and some associated documentation. Avalon-Framework (often abbreviated as AF, or even AF4 for version 4 of the framework) defines several “lifecycle interfaces” that provide a common way for components to be created, initialized, configured, started, etcetera. Part of that lifecycle is support for Inversion of Control.
73 avalon-logkit 2.1 Apache Avalon began in 1999 as the Java Apache Server Framework and in late 2002 separated from the Apache Jakarta Project to become its own ASF top level project. Apache Avalon provided Java software for component and container programming and pioneered the use of design patterns such as Inversion of Control (IoC) and Separation of Concerns (SoC).
74 awesfx 0.5.1c utility programs for AWE32/64 and Emu10k1 driver
75 axis 1.4 AXIS is a modern-looking user interface for EMC with preview and backplot. It is implemented primarily in Python, with the user interface rendered by Tk and OpenGL.
76 backhand 1.2.2 ModBackhand is an Apache module that provides load balancing and high availability features for a cluster of webservers. Because it is part of Apache it works on a HTTP request basis (which also means it cannot be used for any other type of service, ie mail), this allows for smarter and more flexible distribution of requests. It also allows for features not found in lower level balancers like the affinity for servers based on user session, thus easing application development or clustering of existing applications that don’t have a shared session system. ModBackhand is also cross platform, allowing almost all Unices (that run Apache) to do the balancing and also support for Windows based application servers. ModBackhand allows you to also have the balancer on a machine which can also serve the actual requests, have it standalone on a machine with a stripped down Apache or even have multiple balancers for fault tolerance. It works by the participating servers in the cluster broadcasting (Multicast can also be used for multiple clusters on the same network) stats about themselves (Load, CPU idle time, spare Apache processes, etc.) allowing for the balancer to make informed decisions about distributing requests instead of a naive round robin approach (such as DNS RR).
77 banshee 2.2 Banshee is packaged for many Linux distributions, and is even the default media player for several. Here you can learn how to install or update Banshee for your distribution.
78 basesystem 10 Basesystem 8.0 – The skeleton package which defines a simple Red Hat Linux system. Basesystem defines the components of a basic Red Hat Linux system (for example, the package installation order to use during bootstrapping). Basesystem should be the first package installed on a system, and it should never be removed.
79 bash 4.2.10 Bash is an sh-compatible command language interpreter that executes commands read from the standard input or from a file. Bash also incorporates useful features from the Korn and C shells (ksh and csh).
Bash is intended to be a conformant implementation of the IEEE POSIX Shell and Tools specification (IEEE Working Group 1003.2).
80 bastille 3.2.1 The Bastille Hardening program “locks down” an operating system, proactively configuring the system for increased security and decreasing its susceptibility to compromise. Bastille can also assess a system’s current state of hardening, granularly reporting on each of the security settings with which it works. Bastille currently supports the Red Hat (Fedora Core, Enterprise, and Numbered/Classic), SUSE, Debian, Gentoo, and Mandrake distributions, along with HP-UX. Full Mac OS X is ready for download today. Bastille’s focuses on letting the system’s user/administrator choose exactly how to harden the operating system. In its default hardening mode, it interactively asks the user questions, explains the topics of those questions, and builds a policy based on the user’s answers. It then applies the policy to the system. In its assessment mode, it builds a report intended to teach the user about available security settings as well as inform the user as to which settings have been tightened.
81 bc 1.06 bc is a language that supports arbitrary precision numbers with interactive execution of statements. There are some similarities in the syntax to the C programming language. A standard math library is available by command line option. If requested, the math library is defined before processing any files. bc starts by processing code from all the files listed on the command line in the order listed. After all files have been processed, bc reads from the standard input. All code is executed as it is read. (If a file contains a command to halt the processor, bc will never read from the standard input.) This version of bc contains several extensions beyond traditional bc implementations and the POSIX draft standard. Command line options can cause these extensions to print a warning or to be rejected. This document describes the language accepted by this processor. Extensions will be identified as such.
82 bcel 5.2 The Byte Code Engineering Library is intended to give users a convenient possibility to analyze, create, and manipulate (binary) Java class files (those ending with .class). Classes are represented by objects which contain all the symbolic information of the given class: methods, fields and byte code instructions, in particular.
83 Beagle 0.3.9 Beagle is a search system for Linux and other such modern Unix-like systems, enabling the user to search documents, chat logs, email and contact lists in a similar way to Spotlight in Mac OS X, and Windows Search or Google Desktop (third party) under Linux or Microsoft Windows. It is not actively developed. Beagle grew out of Dashboard, an early Mono-based application for watching and presenting useful information from a user’s computer. It is written in C# using Mono and uses a port of Lucene to C# called as its indexer. Beagle includes a Gtk#-based user interface, and integrates with Galago for presence information. Beagle was developed and maintained by Joe Shaw, with help from the open source community. Other notable past contributors include Jon Trowbridge, Robert Love, Nat Friedman, and David Camp.
84 beecrypt 4.2.1 BeeCrypt is an ongoing project to provide a strong and fast cryptography toolkit. Includes entropy sources, random generators, block ciphers, hash functions, message authentication codes, multiprecision integer routines, and public key primitives.
85 bind 9.8.1 bind gives the socket sockfd the local address my_addr. my_addr is addrlen bytes long. Traditionally, this is called lqassigning a name to a socket.rq When a socket is created with socket(2), it exists in a name space (address family) but has no name assigned. It is normally necessary to assign a local address using bind before a SOCK_STREAM socket may receive connections (see accept(2)).
86 binutils The GNU Binary Utilities, or binutils, is a collection of programming tools for the manipulation of object code in various object file formats. The current versions were originally written by programmers at Cygnus Solutions using the Binary File Descriptor library (libbfd). They are typically used in conjunction with GNU Compiler Collection, make, and GDB. Originally the package consisted of only the minor utilities, but later the GNU Assembler (GAS) and GNU Linker (GLD) were included in releases, since their functionality is so closely related. Most of the binutils are rather simple programs. Most of the complexity is encapsulated in the Binary File Descriptor library and libopcodes libraries, which they share. The original BFD versions were written by David Henkel-Wallace and Steve Chamberlain. Past maintainers have included Ken Raeburn and Ian Lance Taylor. As of 2005[update] the current maintainer is Nick Clifton. Binutils for Linux is maintained by H.J. Lu.
87 bionic 2.3.5r1 Bionic libc, libm, libdl, dynamic linker
88 bison 2.5 Bison is a general-purpose parser generator that converts an annotated context-free grammar into an LALR(1) or GLR parser for that grammar. Once you are proficient with Bison, you can use it to develop a wide range of language parsers, from those used in simple desk calculators to complex programming languages. Bison is upward compatible with Yacc: all properly-written Yacc grammars ought to work with Bison with no change. Anyone familiar with Yacc should be able to use Bison with little trouble. You need to be fluent in C or C++ programming in order to use Bison.
89 blam 1.8.7 Blam is a tool that helps you keep track of the growing number of news feeds distributed as RSS. Blam lets you subscribe to any number of feeds and provides an easy to use and clean interface to stay up to date.
90 blktrace 1.0.3 Utilities for performing block layer I/O tracing
91 blocxx 1.0.0 A cross-platform, general purpose C++ framework for application development.
92 blt 2.4y Shared libraries for blt This is the shared libraries for BLT. You should only need this if you are using programs which are linked to blt, or are developing programs in BLT. BLT is an extension to the Tk toolkit, adding new widgets, geometry managers, and miscellaneous commands. It does not require any patching of the Tcl or Tk source files. An attempt is being made to unify the BLT libraries so that the package is independent of whatever tcl/tk library (e.g. 8.0,8.2,8.3) you are using. This will be via the tcl stubs interface. As part of this process, blt8.0 is obsolete and this package dynamically chooses the correct version of BLT library to match your situation. This makes is a lot bigger than if you choose the library versions yourself, but means that you always have the version you need (not always the case under the old system).
93 bluez-bluefw 4.96 Bluetooth firmware loader.
94 bluez-gnome 4.96 This package contains various GNOME applets to detect bluetooth adapters and configure them.
95 bluez-hcidump 2.1 Bluez-hcidump is the BlueZ project Bluetooth HCI data dumper. Hcidump lets you view raw HCI data to and from a Bluetooth device in a human readable way.
96 bluez-libs 4.96 The SDP client functionality of the Bluetooth library contains a potential security issue since the length checks of the incoming data are not always present. The following packages are fixing this by introducing safe versions for some function calls.
97 bluez-pin 4.96 Bluez-Pin is a very simple program which takes care of the PIN numbers used to pair Bluetooth devices. When a PIN is required for either an incoming or outgoing connection, it pops up a window to allow the code to be entered. PINs can optionally be saved in a persistent database, for use with dumb devices (e.g. my Nokia 6210) that are unable to remember pairing information across sessions.
98 bluez-sdp
99 bluez-utils 4.96 This is a transitional package to assist with moving people to the BlueZ 4.x stack.
100 bluez-utils-cups
101 boehm-gc 7.2 The Boehm-Demers-Weiser conservative garbage collector can be used as a garbage collecting replacement for C malloc or C++ new. It allows you to allocate memory basically as you normally would, without explicitly deallocating memory that is no longer useful. The collector automatically recycles memory when it determines that it can no longer be otherwise accessed. A simple example of such a use is given here. The collector is also used by a number of programming language implementations that either use C as intermediate code, want to facilitate easier interoperation with C libraries, or just prefer the simple collector interface. For a more detailed description of the interface, see here. Alternatively, the garbage collector may be used as a leak detector for C or C++ programs, though that is not its primary goal. The arguments for and against conservative garbage collection in C and C++ are briefly discussed in issues.html. The beginnings of a frequently-asked-questions list are here. Empirically, this collector works with most unmodified C programs, simply by replacing malloc with GC_malloc calls, replacing realloc with GC_realloc calls, and removing free calls. Exceptions are discussed in issues.html.
102 bogl 0.1.18 Bogl-bterm 0.1.9 – A Unicode capable terminal program for the Linux frame buffer. The bterm application is a terminal emulator that displays to a Linux frame buffer. It is able to display Unicode text on the console.
103 bonobo 1.0.22 The GNOME Bonobo System. Bonobo is a set of language and system independent CORBA interfaces for creating reusable components (controls) and creating compound documents. The Bonobo distribution includes a Gtk+ based implementation of the Bonobo interfaces, enabling developers to create reusable components and applications that can be used to form more complex documents.

114 bsh 2.0b4 Sh is the standard command interpreter for the system. The current version of sh is in the process of being changed to conform with the POSIX 1003.2 and 1003.2a specifications for the shell. This version has many features which make it appear similar in some respects to the Korn shell, but it is not a Korn shell clone (see ksh(1)). Only features designated by POSIX plus a few Berkeley extensions, are being incorporated into this shell. We expect POSIX conformance by the time 4.4 BSD is released. This man page is not intended to be a tutorial or a complete specification of the shell.
115 bug-buddy 2.9 A graphical bug reporting tool for GNOME The goal of bug-buddy is to make reporting bugs very simple and easy for the user, while making the reports themselves more useful and informative for the developer. It can extract debugging information from a core file or crashed application (via gnome_segv). It currently supports the bug tracking systems of Gnome, Helix, KDE, and Debian.
116 busybox 1.18.2 Tiny utilities for small and embedded systems. BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common UNIX utilities into a single small executable. It provides minimalist replacements for the most common utilities you would usually find on your desktop system (i.e., ls, cp, mv, mount, tar, etc.). The utilities in BusyBox generally have fewer options than their full-featured GNU cousins; however, the options that are included provide the expected functionality and behave very much like their GNU counterparts. This package installs the BusyBox binary but does not install symlinks for any of the supported utilities. You can use /bin/ busybox –install to install BusyBox to the current directory (you do not want to do this in / on your Debian system!).

135 cdrdao 1.2.3 Cdrdao records audio or data CD-Rs in disk-at-once (DAO) mode based on a textual description of the CD contents (toc-file).
136 cdrecord 3 Cdrecord is used to record data or audio Compact Discs on an Orange Book CD-Recorder. The device refers to scsibus/target/lun of the CD-Recorder. Communication on SunOS is done with the SCSI general driver scg. Other operating systems are using a library simulation of this driver. Possible syntax is: dev= scsibus,target,lun or dev= target,lun. In the latter case, the CD-Recorder has to be connected to the default SCSI bus of the machine. Scsibus, target and lun are integer numbers. Some operating systems or SCSI transport implementations may require to specify a filename in addition. In this case the correct syntax for the device is: dev= devicename:scsibus,target,lun or dev= devicename:target,lun. If the name of the device node that has been specified on such a system refers to exactly one SCSI device, a shorthand in the form dev= devicename:@ or dev= devicename:@,lun may be used instead of dev= devicename:scsibus,target,lun.

143 chkconfig 1.3.54 chkconfig provides a simple command-line tool for maintaining the /etc/rc[0-6].d directory hierarchy by relieving system administrators of the task of directly manipulating the numerous symbolic links in those directories. This implementation of chkconfig was inspired by the chkconfig command present in the IRIX operating system. Rather than maintaining configuration information outside of the /etc/rc[0-6].d hierarchy, however, this version directly manages the symlinks in /etc/rc[0-6].d. This leaves all of the configuration information regarding what services init starts in a single location.
144 chkfontpath 1.10.1 chkfontpath provides a simple method of configuring the directories contained in the X font server’s path. As of Red Hat 6.0, all fonts in X are served via this separate font server process, not through the main X server process. This speeds up font rendering, and also allows use of font servers which are not running on the local host.
145 cifs-mount 1.50c mount.cifs mounts a Linux CIFS filesystem. It is usually invoked indirectly by the mount(8) command when using the “-t cifs” option.

161 convmv 1.14 convmv converts filenames (not file content), directories, and even whole filesystems to a different encoding. This comes in very handy if, for example, one switches from an 8-bit locale to an UTF-8 locale or changes charsets on Samba servers. It has some smart features: it automagically recognises if a file is already UTF-8 encoded (thus partly converted filesystems can be fully moved to UTF-8) and it also takes care of symlinks. Additionally, it is able to convert from normalization form C (UTF-8 NFC) to NFD and vice-versa. This is important for interoperability with Mac OS X, for example, which uses NFD, while Linux and most other Unixes use NFC. Though it’s primary written to convert from/to UTF-8 it can also be used with almost any other charset encoding. Convmv can also be used for case conversion from upper to lower case and vice versa with virtually any charset. Note that this is a command line tool which requires at least Perl version 5.8.0.
162 coolkey 1.1.0 CoolKeys are part of complete PKI solution that provides smart card login, single sign-on, secure messaging, and secure email access.

164 cpio 2.11 GNU cpio copies files into or out of a cpio or tar archive. Archives are files which contain a collection of other files plus information about them, such as their file name, owner, timestamps, and access permissions. The archive can be another file on the disk, a magnetic tape, or a pipe. GNU cpio supports the following archive formats: binary,old ASCII, new ASCII, crc, HPUX binary, HPUX old ASCII, old tar and POSIX.1tar. By default, cpio creates binary format archives, so that they are compatible with older cpio programs. When it is extracting files from archives, cpio automatically recognizes which kind of archive it is readingand can read archives created on machines with a different byte-order. Install cpio if you need a program to manage file archives.

169 cracklib 2.8.18 CrackLib tests passwords to determine whether they match certainsecurity-oriented characteristics, with the purpose of stopping users from choosing passwords that are easy to guess. CrackLib performs several tests on passwords: it tries to generate words from a username and gecos entry and checks those words against the password; it checksfor simplistic patterns in passwords; and it checks for the password in a dictionary. CrackLib is actually a library containing a particular C function which is used to check the password, as well as other Cfunctions. CrackLib is not a replacement for a passwd program; it must be used in conjunction with an existing passwd program. Install the cracklib package if you need a program to check users’passwords to see if they are at least minimally secure. If you install CrackLib, you will also want to install the cracklib-dicts package.
170 crash 5.1.8 A kernel debugging utility, allowing gdb like syntax. The core analysis suite is a self-contained tool that can be used to investigate either live systems, kernel core dumps created from the Kernel Core Dump patch offered by Mission Critical Linux, or kernel core dumps created by the LKCD patch offered by SGI. o The tool is loosely based on the SVR4 crash command, but has been completely integrated with gdb in order to be able to display formatted kernel data structures, disassemble source code, etc. o The current set of available commands consist of common kernel core analysis tools such as a context-specific stack traces, source code disassembly, kernel variable displays, memory display, dumps of linked-lists, etc. In addition, any gdb command may be entered, which in turn will be passed onto the gdb module for execution. o There are several commands that delve deeper into specific kernel subsystems, which also serve as templates for kernel developers to create new commands for analysis of a specific area of interest. Adding a new command is a simple affair, and a quick recompile adds it to the command menu. o The intent is to make the tool independent of Linux version dependencies, building in recognition of major kernel code changes so as to adapt to new kernel versions, while maintaining backwards compatibility. From Debian 3.0r0 APT

181 cvs 1.11.23 CVS means Concurrent Version System; it is a version control system which can record the history of your files (usually,but not always, source code). CVS only stores the differences between versions, instead of every version of every fileyou’ve ever created. CVS also keeps a log of who, when and why changes occurred, among other aspects. CVS is very helpful for managing releases and controllingthe concurrent editing of source files among multipleauthors. Instead of providing version control for a collection of files in a single directory, CVS providesversion control for a hierarchical collection ofdirectories consisting of revision controlled files. These directories and files can then be combined togetherto form a software release. Install the cvs package if you need to use a version control system.

214 devfsd 1.3.25 The devfsd programme is a daemon, run by the system bootscripts which can provide for intelligent management ofdevice entries in the Device Filesystem (devfs). As part of its setup phase devfsd creates certain symbolic links which are compiled into the code. These links are required by /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt. This behaviour may change in future revisions .devfsd will read the special control file .devfsd in amounted devfs, listening for the creation and removal of device entries (this is termed a change operation). For each change operation, devfsd can take many actions. The daemon will normally run itself in the background and send messages to syslog. The opening of the syslog service is automatically delayed until /dev/log is created. At startup, before switching to daemon mode, devfsd willscan the mounted device tree and will generate synthetic REGISTER events for each leaf node.
215 devhelp 3.2.0 Devhelp is an API documentation browser for GTK+ and GNOME. It works natively with gtk-doc (the API reference framework developed for GTK+ and used throughout GNOME for API documentation). If you use gtk-doc with your project, you can use Devhelp to browse the documentation.

219 dhcdbd n/a Package is obsolete dhcdbd provides a dbus interface to dhclient allowing applications such as Networkmanager to query the state of and control interfaces.
220 dhcp 4.2.2 The Dynamic Host Configuration protocol allows the client to receive options from the DHCP server describing the network configuration and various services that are available on the network. When configuring dhcpd(8) or dhclient(8) , options must often be declared. The syntax for declaring options, and the names and formats of the options that can be declared, are documented here.
221 dhcp6 4.2.3 DHCPv6 is the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6. Although IPv6’s stateless address autoconfiguration removes the primary motivation for DHCP in IPv6, DHCPv6 can still be used to assign addresses statefully if the network administrator desires more control over addressing. It can also be used to distribute other configuration information as is the practice in IPv4. A notable case are Domain Name System servers used on a network, albeit other mechanism exist for this in the Neighbor Discovery Protocol.[1]
222 dhcpcd 1.3 Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Server.
223 dhcp-client 4.2.3 The Internet Software Consortium DHCP Client, dhclient, provides a means for configuring one or more network interfaces using the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, BOOTP protocol, or if these protocols fail, by statically assigning an address.
224 dhcp-relay 4.2.3 The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a service that runs at the application layer of the TCP/IP protocol stack to dynamically assign IP addresses to DHCP clients, and to allocate TCP/IP configuration information to DHCP clients. This includes subnet mask information, default gateway IP addresses, DNS IP addresses, and WINS IP addresses. The DHCP protocol is derived from the Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) protocol. The DHCP server is configured with a predetermined pool of IP addresses (scopes), from which it allocates IP addresses to DHCP clients. During the boot process, DHCP clients request IP addresses, and obtain leases for IP addresses from the DHCP server.
225 dhcp-server 6.87 The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is an auto configuration protocol used on IP networks. Computers that are connected to IP networks must be configured before they can communicate with other computers on the network. DHCP allows a computer to be configured automatically, eliminating the need for intervention by a network administrator. It also provides a central database for keeping track of computers that have been connected to the network. This prevents two computers from accidentally being configured with the same IP address. In the absence of DHCP, hosts may be manually configured with an IP address. Alternatively IPv6 hosts may use stateless address autoconfiguration to generate an IP address. IPv4 hosts may use link-local addressing to achieve limited local connectivity.
226 dhcp-tools 2.0.0alpha4 & Tools associated with DHCP.
227 dia 0.97 Dia is used to create diagrams. Dia has a number of basic tools, like lines and boxes but can also dynamically load “sheets”.

311 filesystem 2.4.44 A file system (often also written as filesystem) is a method of storing and organizing computer files and their data. Essentially, it organizes these files into a database for the storage, organization, manipulation, and retrieval by the computer’s operating system. File systems are used on data storage devices such as hard disks or CD-ROMs to maintain the physical location of the files. Beyond this, they might provide access to data on a file server by acting as clients for a network protocol (e.g., NFS, SMB, or 9P clients), or they may be virtual and exist only as an access method for virtual data (e.g., procfs). It is distinguished from a directory service and registry.
312 fillup 1.42 fillup merges files that hold variables. A variable is defined by an entity composed of a preceding comment, a variable name, an assignment delimiter, and a related variable value. A variable is determined by its variable name.

317 firstboot 16.4 firstboot is the program that runs on the first boot of a Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux system that allows you to configure more things than the installer allows. It also has a mode known as reconfig mode to let you reconfigure user settings that were originally set in the installer. This is generally useful to IHVs shipping hardware to an end user so that the end user can do things such as select their language, set their root password and configure their network. To start this mode, touch /etc/reconfigSys on your system. firstboot has a modular architecture such that each screen is a separate python module. This allows firstboot to be a framework that requires no knowledge of the underlying modules. The primary benefit of this is that additional steps can be added without having to modify firstboot itself. The Modules page describes how to create a firstboot module.

334 F-Spot 0.8.2 There are several advanced photo management programs that you can use to collect, organize, enjoy, and share all those pictures you have been taking with your digital camera. Which one is the best for you may depend on which version of Linux or which desktop environment you are using. For KDE based distributions, like Kubuntu, DigiKam works great. If you are using GNOME, the default desktop environment for Ubuntu, F-Spot is a good choice. F-Spot is actually pre-installed in Ubuntu, and you can directly launch it from the Applications -> Graphics menu. If you connect your digital camera through a USB connection, F-Spot can detect it and offers to import the pictures. You can than categorize them, edit them, run them in a slide show, or use any of the other functions.

The standalone version will be kept maintained and it is possible to install both versions on the same system. If you need to use different configuration files, you should make use of something like ‘gpg.conf-2’ instead of just ‘gpg.conf’.
450 gpgme 1.3.0 GnuPG Made Easy (GPGME) is a library designed to make access to GnuPG easier for applications. It provides a High-Level Crypto API for encryption, decryption, signing, signature verification and key management. Currently it uses GnuPG as its backend but the API isn’t restricted to this engine; in fact we have already developed a backend for CMS (S/MIME). Because the direct use of GnuPG from an application can be a complicated programming task, it is suggested that all software should try to use GPGME instead. This way bug fixes or improvements can be done at a central place and every application benefits from this. Especially authors of MUAs should consider to use GPGME. It is even planned to create a set of standard widgets for common key selection tasks.

491 hardlink F-13 split In computing, a hard link is a directory entry that associates a name with a file on a file system. A directory is itself a special kind of file that contains a list of such entries. The term is particular to file systems which allow multiple hard links to be created for the same file. This has the effect of creating multiple names for the same file, causing an aliasing effect: if the file is opened by one of its names, and changes are made to its content, then these changes will also be visible when the file is opened by an alternative name. By contrast, a soft link on such filesystems is not a link to a file itself, but to a file name; this also creates aliasing, but in a different way.

543 inetd SUSE The subsystem in UNIX responsible for starting most of the network services. This program works from the principle that one service can listen for incoming traffic on a socket, and when such traffic appears, it can launch the appropriate service to handle it. This allows a single box to support many services without actually having them all run at the same time. The file /etc/inetd.conf configures this service. Key point: A common backdoor technique is to place a root shell program in inetd.conf.

550 inn 2.5.2 News transport system `InterNetNews’ by the ISC and Rich Salz This is INN version 1.X, provided for sites which are not ready to upgrade to 2.X yet. New installations of INN should use Debian’s inn2 package instead. The news transport is the part of the system that stores the articles and the lists of which groups are available and so on, and provides those articles on request to users. It receives news (either posted locally or from a newsfeed site), files it, and passes it on to any downstream sites. Each article is kept for a period of time and then deleted (this is known as `expiry’). By default Debian’s INN will install in a fairly simple `local-only’ configuration. In order to make use of the services provided by INN you’ll have to use a user-level newsreader program such as trn. The newsreader is the program that fetches articles from the server and shows them to the user, remembering which the user has seen so that they don’t get shown again. It also provides the posting interface for the user.

567 ipv6calc 0.90.0 ipv6calc is a small utility written in programming languate C to manipulate (not only) IPv6 addresses. Intentions were convering a given IPv6 address into compressed format, convering a given IPv6 address into the same format like shown in /proc/net/if_inet6 and (because it was not difficulty) migrating the Perl program ip6_int into. Now only one utiltity is needed to do a lot.
568 ipvsadm 1.26 Ipvsadm(8) is used to set up, maintain or inspect the virtual server table in the Linux kernel. The Linux Virtual Server can be used to build scalable network services based on a cluster of two or more nodes.

573 isapnp 1.27 isapnp is a program to configure Plug-and-Play (PnP) devices on the ISA bus including internal modems. It comes in a package called “isapnptools” and includes another program, “pnpdump” which finds all your ISA PnP devices and shows you options for configuring them in a format which may be added to the PnP configuration file: /etc/isapnp.conf. It may also be used with the –dumpregs option to show the current IO address and IRQ of the modem’s serial port. The isapnp command may be put into a startup file so that it runs each time you start the computer and thus will configure ISA PnP devices. It is able to do this even if your BIOS doesn’t support PnP. See Plug-and-Play-HOWTO.
574 iscsitarget In computing, iSCSI (pronounced /a??sk?zi/ “eye-scuzzy”), is an abbreviation of Internet Small Computer System Interface, an Internet Protocol (IP)-based storage networking standard for linking data storage facilities. By carrying SCSI commands over IP networks, iSCSI is used to facilitate data transfers over intranets and to manage storage over long distances. iSCSI can be used to transmit data over local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), or the Internet and can enable location-independent data storage and retrieval. The protocol allows clients (called initiators) to send SCSI commands (CDBs) to SCSI storage devices (targets) on remote servers. It is a popular Storage Area Network (SAN) protocol, allowing organizations to consolidate storage into data center storage arrays while providing hosts (such as database and web servers) with the illusion of locally-attached disks. Unlike traditional Fibre Channel, which requires special-purpose cabling, iSCSI can be run over long distances using existing network infrastructure.

579 ispell 3.3.02 International Ispell (an interactive spelling corrector) Ispell corrects spelling in plain text, LaTeX, sgml/html/xml, and nroff files. [x]Emacs and jed have nice interfaces to ispell, and ispell works from many other tools and from the command line as well. No dictionaries are included in this package. Ispell looks in /usr/lib/ispell/default.{aff,hash} and in / usr/share/dict/words by default. Those files may be provided, respectively, by an ispell-dictionary package and a wordlist package. (You must have an ispell dictionary before you can use ispell; a wordlist is only required for ispell’s (L)ookup command.) This ispell package supports either the “new-style” idict-(language) dictionaries or the “old-style” i(language) dictionaries. As of February 2001, only old-style dictionaries are available, because the dictionaries-common standards and package have not been finalized. When dictionaries-common and the idict-( language) dictionaries become available, this version of ispell will be able to use them. (For more information, please see the dictionaries-common package and ispell’s Debian changelog).

581 jack 1.9.7 Rip and encode CDs with one command Jack has been developed with one main goal: making MP3s or OGGs without having to worry. There is nearly no way that an incomplete rip goes unnoticed, e.g. jack compares WAV and OGG file sizes when continuing from a previous run. Jack also checks your HD space before doing anything (even keeps some MB free). Jack is different from other such tools in a number of ways: – it supports different rippers and encoders – it is very configurable – it doesn’t need X – it can “rip” virtual CD images like the ones created by cdrdao – when using cdparanoia, cdparanoia’s status information is displayed for all tracks, so you can see if something went wrong – it uses sophisticated disk space management, i.e. it schedules it’s ripping/ encoding processes depending on available space. – freedb query, file renaming and id3 tagging – it can resume work after it has been interrupted. If all tracks have been ripped, it doesn’t even need the CD anymore, even if you want to do a freedb query. – it can do a freedb query based on OGGs alone, like if you don’t remember from which CD those OGGs came from. – freedb submissions

Day-to-day development takes place on the Linux kernel mailing list. The Linux kernel was initially conceived and created by Finnish computer science student[8] Linus Torvalds in 1991. Linux rapidly accumulated developers and users who adopted code from other free software projects for use with the new operating system.[9] The Linux kernel has received contributions from thousands of programmers.[10] Many Linux distributions have been released based upon the Linux kernel.

679 kinput2 3.1 Kinput2 is an X window application to input Japanese text. It acts as a front-end for other applications that want kana-kanji conversion. When invoked, after some initialization (which will take about a few to 30 seconds depending on your machine) kinput2 waits quietly for a Japanese text input request from another client (i.e. no windows appear). When kinput2 receives a request, it pops up a window and starts conversion process. It sends the converted text back to the client when the text is fixed. Kinput2 has some big improvements over its predecessor, kinput, which was contributed to X11R4.

685 klibc 1.5 Now obsolete In computing, klibc is a minimalistic subset of the standard C library developed by H. Peter Anvin. It was developed mainly to be used during the Linux startup process, and it is part of the early user space, i.e. components used during kernel startup, but which do not run in kernel mode.[1] These components do not have access to the standard library (usually glibc) used by normal userspace programs. The development of klibc library was part of the 2002 effort to move some Linux initialization code out of the kernel.[2][3][4] According to its documentation, the klibc library is optimized for correctness and small size.[1] Because of its design, klibc is also technically suitable for embedded software in general. Unlike many other open source libraries, klibc is licensed under the full GPL license, which (unlike LGPL) imposes itself on any code linked with it. (This only applies to klibc as a whole due to embedding some Linux kernel derived files; most of the library source code is actually[5] available under a BSD licence from UCB or the Historical Permission Notice and Disclaimer.) This may limit its applicability to commercial embedded software.[6] During the Linux startup process, klibc is loaded from within a temporary RAM file system, initramfs. It is incorporated by default into initial RAM file systems that are created by the mkinitramfs script in Debian [7] and Ubuntu. Furthermore it has a set of small Unix utilities that are useful in early user space: cpio, dash, fstype, mkdir, mknod, mount, nfsmount, run-init, etc.

In particular, color management attempts to support WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) on-screen previewing (soft-proofing) ability for color work such as retouching prior to printing. Note that in practice, best is determined according to some algorithm and may not correspond well to what a human eye would consider best.

Also, less does not have to read the entire input file before starting, so with large input files it starts up faster than text editors like vi (1). Less uses termcap (or terminfo on some systems), so it can run on a variety of terminals. There is even limited support for hardcopy terminals. (On a hardcopy terminal, lines which should be printed at the top of the screen are prefixed with a caret.)
706 lftp 4.3.2 Sophisticated command-line FTP/HTTP client programs Lftp is a file retrieving tool that supports FTP and HTTP protocols under both IPv4 and IPv6. Lftp has an amazing set of features, while preserving its interface as simple and easy as possible. The main two advantages over other ftp clients are reliability and ability to perform tasks in background. It will reconnect and reget the file being transferred if the connection broke. You can start a transfer in background and continue browsing on the ftp site. It does this all in one process. When you have started background jobs and feel you are done, you can just exit lftp and it automatically moves to nohup mode and completes the transfers. It has also such nice features as reput and mirror. It can also download a file as soon as possible by using several connections at the same time. Lftp can also be scriptable, it can be used to mirror sites, it let you copy files among remote servers (even between FTP and HTTP). It has an extensive online help. It supports bookmarks, and connecting to several ftp/http sites at the same time. This package also includes lftpget – A simple non-interactive tool for downloading files.

736 libevent 2.0.10 The libevent API provides a mechanism to execute a callback function when a specific event occurs on a file descriptor or after a timeout has been reached. Furthermore, libevent also support callbacks due to signals or regular timeouts. libevent is meant to replace the event loop found in event driven network servers. An application just needs to call event_dispatch() and then add or remove events dynamically without having to change the event loop. Currently, libevent supports /dev/poll, kqueue(2), event ports, select(2), poll(2) and epoll(4). The internal event mechanism is completely independent of the exposed event API, and a simple update of libevent can provide new functionality without having to redesign the applications. As a result, Libevent allows for portable application development and provides the most scalable event notification mechanism available on an operating system. Libevent can also be used for multi-threaded applications; see Steven Grimm’s explanation. Libevent should compile on Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X, Solaris and Windows

Key point: Most programs go through a high-level interface (like sockets) in order to send traffic on the network. Sometimes, for security or hacking reasons, a program needs to construct its own network headers. The existing TCP/IP stack is unable to build these headers, so you must bypass it and go directly to the hardware drivers. Libnet is a library that makes custom packet generation easier. Misunderstanding: Some people believe that libnet will not work on Win95 or WinNT because these systems do not support raw sockets. This is false — libnet has been widely used on these platforms.
802 libnetpbm n/a Package is obsolete (duplicate of netpbm). libnetpbm is a C programming library for reading, writing, and manipulating Netpbm images.

963 microcode_ctl 1.17 microcode.ctl: Intel IA32 CPU Microcode Utility The microcode_ctl utility is a companion to the IA32 microcode driver written by Tigran Aivazian ( [email protected]). The utility has two uses: a) it decodes and sends new microcode to the kernel driver to be uploaded to Intel IA32 family processors. (Pentium Pro, PII, Celeron, PIII, Xeon, Pentium 4 etc.) b) it signals the kernel driver to release any buffers it may hold The microcode update is volatile and needs to be uploaded on each system boot i.e. it doesn’t re-flash your CPU permanently, reboot and it reverts back to the old microcode. The ideal place to load microcode is in BIOS, but most vendors never update it! To enable microcode update, I need some kernel support, thus I need the linux kernel 2.2.18 or later, or 2.4.0 or later. From Debian 3.0r0 APT

968 mkbootdisk 2.4.2-2 The mkbootdisk program creates a standalone boot floppy disk for booting the running system. The created boot disk will look for the root filesystem on the device mentioned in /etc/fstab and includes an initial ramdisk image which will load any necessary SCSI modules for the system.
969 mkinitrd n/a Mkinitrd creates filesystem images for use as initial ramdisk (initrd) images. These ramdisk images are often used to preload the block device modules (SCSI or RAID) needed to access the root filesystem. In other words, generic kernels can be built without drivers for any SCSI adapters which load the SCSI driver as a module. Since the kernel needs to read those modules, but in this case it isn’t able to address the SCSI adapter, an initial ramdisk is used. The initial ramdisk is loaded by the operating system loader (normally LILO) and is available to the kernel as soon as the ramdisk is loaded. The ramdisk image loads the proper SCSI adapter and allows the kernel to mount the root filesystem. The mkinitrd program creates such a ramdisk using information found in the /etc/ modules.conf file.
970 mkisofs n/a This is the mkisofs package. It is used to create ISO 9660 file system images for creating CD-ROMs. Now includes support for making bootable “El Torito” CD-ROMs.

987 module-init-tools 3.15 The module-init-tools are a set of programs for loading, inserting, and removing Kernel Modules for Linux (versions 2.5.48 and above). It serves the same function that the modutils package serves for Linux 2.4. They are necessary because starting with 2.5.51, modules are handled differently. Every symbol of a module has versioning information, so that the Kernel can read the module and what hooks it uses, compare it to an internal database of what’s critical and what’s not, and decide whether the module can be used, even if it wasn’t compiled specifically for the current running Kernel. This adds a lot more flexibility for people forced to run BinaryDrivers.
988 Modules 3.1.1 The Environment Modules package provides for the dynamic modification of a user’s environment via modulefiles.

1056 nmap 5.51 The Network Mapper nmap is a utility for port scanning large networks, although it works fine for single hosts. The guiding philosophy for the creation of nmap was TMTOWTDI (There’s More Than One Way To Do It). This is the Perl slogan, but it is equally applicable to scanners. Sometimes you need speed, other times you may need stealth. In some cases, bypassing firewalls may be required. Not to mention the fact that you may want to scan different protocols (UDP, TCP, ICMP, etc.). You just can’t do all this with one scanning mode. And you don’t want to have 10 different scanners around, all with different interfaces. Thus I incorporated virtually every scanning technique I know into nmap. Specifically, nmap supports: Vanilla TCP connect() scanning, TCP SYN (half open) scanning, TCP FIN (stealth) scanning, TCP ftp proxy (bounce attack) scanning SYN/FIN scanning using IP fragments (bypasses packet filters), UDP recvfrom() scanning, UDP raw ICMP port unreachable scanning, ICMP scanning (ping-sweep), and Reverse-ident scanning. nmap also supports a number of performance and reliability features such as dynamic delay time calculations, packet timeout and retransmission, parallel port scanning, detection of down hosts via parallel pings, and flexible target and port specification. From Debian 3.0r0 APT

It should have general read permission (many utilities, like ls(1) use it to map user IDs to user names), but write access only for the superuser.
1132 patch 2.6.1 Security updates to products are often referred to as “patches” because they fix one small part of the product rather than updating the entire product. Analogy: Imagine that you are in a rubber raft that seems to be sinking. You look around on the boat and see small holes. You use your patch kit to fix the small holes rather than building yourself a new boat. Key point: The software you are using today likely has security holes that nobody has discovered yet. It seems unlikely, but this has been the historical precidence, whether you are using open-source (e.g. Linux), Microsoft products, or class UNIX systems (e.g. Sun). Therefore, if you don’t keep up with the latest software, you will eventually get hacked. From Hacking-Lexicon

1146 perl-BerkeleyDB 0.49 This Perl module provides an interface to most of the functionality available in Berkeley DB versions 2, 3 and 4. In general it is safe to assume that the interface provided here to be identical to the Berkeley DB interface. The main changes have been to make the Berkeley DB API work in a Perl way. Note that if you are using Berkeley DB 2.x, the new features available in Berkeley DB 3.x or DB 4.x are not available via this module.
1147 perl-Bit-Vector 7.1 A bit vector is just an array of bits; subsets of bits within the bytes have some meaning. That allows more compact storage for certain types of data. For example, if you only needed boolean on-off values, you can store eight values in one byte. If your values require more than byte sized bits, the bits you require can still be packed more efficiently; if you need 10 bits, you can pack eight of those in an ten byte string (rather than the 16 or 32 bytes you might otherwise use).
1148 perl-Bootloader 0.4.32 Perl-Bootloader response for kernel post-install bootloader update script. Current target is ensure, that you have in your bootloader actually kernel and also that entries for old kernel is removed. This is problematic for some complex or manually enhanced configuration. In this case perl-Bootloader should somehow break your settings (this mean you still can boot, but your enhancement or extra sections can dismiss). This should change in future as noticed in bugzilla .

1175 perl-Filter 1.39 This article is about a little-known feature of Perl called source filters. Source filters alter the program text of a module before Perl sees it, much as a C preprocessor alters the source text of a C program before the compiler sees it. This article tells you more about what source filters are, how they work, and how to write your own.
The original purpose of source filters was to let you encrypt your program source to prevent casual piracy. This isn’t all they can do, as you’ll soon learn. But first, the basics.

You can use the module read the XML from a file and write the XML to a file. Perl objects are blessed back to their original packaging; if the modules are installed on the system where the perl objects are reconstituted from xml, they will behave as expected. Intuitively, if the perl objects are converted and reconstituted in the same environment, all should be well. And it is.
1226 perl-XML-Encoding 2.08 This module, which is built as a subclass of XML::Parser, provides a parser for encoding map files, which are XML files. The file maps/encmap.dtd in the distribution describes the structure of these files.

This package contains command line programs used to access and manipulate RRDs.
1395 rsaref SUSE RSA Reference Implementation. This was a fairly open implementation of the RSA algorithm that has been embedded into many problems. This is not the source code that RSA sells to vendors, but an open-source version that has been imbedded within freeware/open-source products (like ssh). A patent-license is still required when using this code in commercial products, though. Key point: RSAREF has been supported by RSA (the company) for a long time, and a number of security holes have been found in this implementation. RSA wants people to use the BSAFE development kit instead. In late 1999 in particular, a bug was found that allows ssh to be hacked.

1401 rt-watchdog 1 BROKEN – The rt-watchdog program, written by User:Vhmauery is a general userspace watchdog program to prevent the system from being taken over by runaway real-time processes. It launches two threads: the first a SCHED_FIFO 99 thread that runs periodically; the second, a SCHED_OTHER thread that is the canary. When the canary is starved, it stops singing and the watchdog presumes that some (often the number of CPUs) number of processes are hogging all the CPU time. When this happens, it takes some action to remedy the situation. The default action is to kill one or more processes. So it looks at all the real-time threads and processes currently running and determines which ones are taking the most time and kills them systematically.

1412 sash 3.7 Stand-alone shell. sash serves as an interactive substitute for /bin/sh, for use when /bin/sh is unusable. It’s statically linked, and inludes many standard utilities as builtins (type “help” at the prompt for a reference list). If you’ve installed sash before rendering your system unbootable, and you have some knowledge of how your system is supposed to work, you might be able to repair your system using init=/bin/sash at the boot prompt. Some people also prefer to have sash available as the shell for a root account (perhaps an under an alternate name such as sashroot) Configuration support is included for people who want this. Note: sash is not intended to serve as /bin/sh, and has few of the interactive features present in bash or ksh. It’s designed to be simple and robust, for people who need to do emergency repair work on a system. Also note: sash doesn’t include a built-in fsck — fsck is too big and complicated. If you need fsck, you’ll have to get at least one partition or disk working well enough to run fsck. More generally, sash is but one tool of many (backups, backup recovery tools, emergency boot disks or partitions, spare parts, testing of disaster plans, etc.) to help you recover a damaged system. From Debian 3.0r0 APT

1437 scsi SUSE Small Computer System Interface, or SCSI (pronounced scuzzy[1]), is a set of standards for physically connecting and transferring data between computers and peripheral devices. The SCSI standards define commands, protocols, and electrical and optical interfaces. SCSI is most commonly used for hard disks and tape drives, but it can connect a wide range of other devices, including scanners and CD drives. The SCSI standard defines command sets for specific peripheral device types; the presence of “unknown” as one of these types means that in theory it can be used as an interface to almost any device, but the standard is highly pragmatic and addressed toward commercial requirements.
1438 scsi-changer 0.2 This is a driver for SCSI Media Changer devices, for example tape libraries or CD-ROM/MOD Jukeboxes.
1439 scsirastools 1.6.4 This project includes changes that enhance the Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) of the drivers and tools that are commonly used in a Linux disk management and Linux RAID-1 configuration. Linux Root Disk Mirroring (RAID-1) is the technique of using redundant disks to record multiple copies of the data so that a failure of one disk does not cause data loss. This does not necessarily address the needs of hardware RAID adapters. The RAID adapter vendor should be the source of tools for that.
1440 scsi-target-utils 1.0.18 The scsi-target-utils package contains the daemon and tools to setup iSCSI targets.
1441 SDL 1.2.14 SDL < > is a library by Sam Lantiga (graduate of UCD, yeah!).

Sgrep implements a query language based on so called region expressions. Like grep, sgrep can be used for any kind of text files. However it is most useful for text files containing some kind of structured text. A file containing structured text could be defined as a file, which obeys some syntax. Examples of structured text files are SGML, HTML, C, Tex and mail files.
1460 shadow-utils The shadow-utils package includes the necessary programs for converting UNIX password files to the shadow password format, plus programs for managing user and group accounts. The pwconv command converts passwords to the shadow password format. The pwunconv command unconverts shadow passwords and generates an npasswd file (a standard UNIX password file). The pwck command checks the integrity of password and shadow files. The lastlog command prints out the last login times for all users. The useradd, userdel and usermod commands are used for managing user accounts. The groupadd, groupdel andgroupmod commands are used for managing group accounts.

1462 sharutils 4.11.1 The sharutils package contains the GNU shar utilities, a set of tools for encoding and decoding packages of files (in binary or text format) in a special plain text format called shell archives (shar). This format can be sent through email (which can be problematic for regular binary files). The shar utility supports a wide range of capabilities (compressing, uuencoding, splitting long files for multi-part mailings, providing checksums), which make it very flexible at creating shar files. After the files have been sent, the unshartool scans mail messages looking for shar files. Unshar automatically strips off mail headers and introductory text and then unpacks the sharfiles. Install sharutils if you send binary files through email very often.

1474 Sonance SUSE Sonance is a brand spankin new audio player based on the GStreamer media library and is developed on the Open Source Mono .NET Platform, written in C#. It uses the gst-sharp GStreamer bindings, which are currently only available via CVS. Version 0.2 now supports shuffle/repeat modes, playlist searching, recursive directory additions, and saves the window/widget states in GConf. Sonance may currently act as a simple drop-in XMMS/Beep replacement. It sports a basic playlist, with add/remove/clear/reorder support, and metadata support through GStreamer. Now that Sonance has a stable base, the goal is to create an entire music organization and playback platform, much like Rhythmbox and iTunes. However, Sonance will have a much smaller footprint, and will be more versatile: you dont have to utilize a music library. Sometimes its just nice to have a standalone player that isnt dependent on any kind of database. Sonance is multi-threaded. Playback is always smooth and fast, based on a solid, featureful GStreamer core, and adding lots of files to the playlist is no problem, because additions are done in a separate thread. Sonance is easy to use, simple, yet powerful, and its future is very bright..

The list of supported languages also includes non-scripting languages such as C#, Common Lisp (CLISP, Allegro CL, CFFI, UFFI), Go language, Java, Lua, Modula-3, OCAML, Octave and R. Also several interpreted and compiled Scheme implementations (Guile, MzScheme, Chicken) are supported. SWIG is most commonly used to create high-level interpreted or compiled programming environments, user interfaces, and as a tool for testing and prototyping C/C++ software. SWIG is typically used to parse C/C++ interfaces and generate the ‘glue code’ required for the above target languages to call into the C/C++ code. SWIG can also export its parse tree in the form of XML and Lisp s-expressions. SWIG is free software and the code that SWIG generates is compatible with both commercial and non-commercial projects.

1623 watchdog 5.9 The Linux software watchdog is a timer that continuously counts down from a specified start value. Once it reaches zero a function named ?watchdog_fire? is called that logs the event and initiates a hard reset. A watchdog daemon is therefore needed to refresh the timer. As long as the daemon is present the timer will never fire, but if the daemon stops working for some reason, the timer will fire and reboot the machine. However, with no additional hardware, the watchdog is not able to recover from every possible hang up. For instance, if the interrupt system itself hangs up, the software watchdog is no cure at all.

1872 zlib 1.2.5 zlib is designed to be a free, general-purpose, legally unencumbered — that is, not covered by any patents — lossless data-compression library for use on virtually any computer hardware and operating system. The zlib data format is itself portable across platforms. Unlike the LZW compression method used in Unix compress(1) and in the GIF image format, the compression method currently used in zlib essentially never expands the data. (LZW can double or triple the file size in extreme cases.) zlib’s memory footprint is also independent of the input data and can be reduced, if necessary, at some cost in compression. A more precise, technical discussion of both points is available on another page.
