Autodist
'Autodist' is a source distribution management system that lets users define what is included in and excluded from a distribution and what license is used. It is especially targeted at large software projects that create multiple distributions from a source tree. Autodist supports distribution management in directory, file, and file content level, and automatic relicensing of a distribution. Please note that Autodist is not a binary packaging system. It is specifically used to create source distributions. A binary packaging system, however can be hooked to the distribution creation process, if needed.
Batchput
'Batchput' transfers files from a local directory, matching a specified regex, to an FTP server. It is mainly for transfering "incoming" files continually to another host by being called regularly from crontab or similar. It does this safely and efficiently by using per-directory locking to avoid collisions between different batchput processes, allowing configuration of notification in case of error, and moving transferred files to a local backup location where they can be archived or deleted.
Bleachbit
BleachBit deletes unnecessary files to free valuable disk space, maintain privacy, and remove junk. It removes cache, Internet history, temporary files, cookies, and broken shortcuts. Some common uses include:
  • Free disk space
  • Reduce the size of backups and the time to create them by removing unnecessary files
  • Maintain privacy
  • Improve system performance (by vacuuming your browser's database, for example)
  • Prepare whole disk images for compression (common for "ghost" backups and virtual machines) by wiping free disk space
Bootstrapper
The bootstrapper program creates a customized bootstrap script by scanning the autoconf macros in a project's configure.in file and using them to determine which programs need to be used to create a usable configure script. It then creates a bootstrap script which is custom tailored to your project's configuration. The resulting bootstrap script is useful for rebuilding the configure script and Makefile.in files, particularly for a project which may be downloaded off of a cvs server. By including a bootstrap script in a cvs repository, all auto generated files related to configure can be excluded from the cvs repository. It is also useful for a developer importing a new project onto a cvs repository. Running `make distclean' then `./bootstrap --clean' removes all auto-generated files, instead of removing them by hand.
Bras
Bras is a rules-based command execution system, a la 'make'. It helps to keep targets (usually, but not neccessarily, files) , up-to-date with respect to a set of dependencies. For every target, a (freely definable) rule describes what it means for the target to be out-of-date and what has to be done to refresh it. Bras can follow targets into other directories. It acts there according to the local brasfile to update the target and then reports the result back. Because no recursive execution of bras is necessary, the result of the reasoning for that other directory is not lost. Bras is implemented in Tcl. Rules can be mixed with procedural parts. In particular control structures can be used to automatically collect lists of targets, find out platform specifics or selectively activate rules. 'Bras' normally runs from the command line, but its rule eveluation functionality is available as a TCL module and can be used in a GUI application implemented in Tcl/tk.
Busynode
This is a candidate for deletion: Marked as decommissioned. Drw (talk) 09:01, 18 July 2018 (EDT) 'busynode' is a simple host reservation system, primarily designed for cluster installations. It lets users communicate with others on what hosts they currently use, or plan to use in the near future. Reservation information is stored as text files on a shared filesystem (such as an NFS mount). When executed without any options, busynode behaves as an enhanced ruptime tool.
Calamares
Calamares is a distribution-independent system installer, with an advanced partitioning feature for both manual and automated partitioning operations. It is the first installer with an automated “Replace Partition” option, which makes it easy to reuse a partition over and over for distribution testing. Calamares is designed to be customized by distribution maintainers without need for cumbersome patching, thanks to third party branding and external modules support.
Caspar
'Caspar' offers Makefile snippets for tasks like installing files maintained using a version control system, or typesetting documents in certain markup languages. If you need to maintain and distribute lots of files, you will probably find 'Caspar' useful. It can also automate typesetting if you write documents in a markup language like LaTeX, DocBook XML, DocBook SGML or POD.
Cfengine Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Intended for sys admins, cfengine is a tool for setting up and maintaining BSD and System 5-like operating systems optionally attached to a TCP/IP network. The program focuses on a few key areas that scripts tend to mishandle. From a single configuration files (or set of files) you specify, using classes, your network configuration; cfengine then parses the file and carries out the instructions, warning you about errors (or fixing them) as it goes. You can think of cfengine as a very high level language, higher than Perl or shell: a single command can result in many hundreds of operations being performed on multiple hosts. You can also use it as a net-wide front end for 'cron.'
Change Suffix
'chsuf' changes the suffix of file and/or directory names. It also can be used to add or remove a suffix to/from a list of files. chsuf can be useful for changing DOS-style three character extensions to more readable variations (e.g. from .htm to .html), or for adding an extension to filenames for use on platforms which depend on filename extensions.
CheckInstall
'CheckInstall' keeps track of all files installed by a "make install" or equivalent, creates a Slackware, RPM, or Debian package with those files, and adds it to the installed packages database, allowing for easy package removal or distribution.
Cleanlinks
The cleanlinks program searches the directory tree descended from the current directory for symbolic links whose targets do not exist, and removes them. It then removes all empty directories in that directory tree. It is useful for cleaning up a shadow link tree created with 'lndir' after files have been removed from the real directory.
ClusterIt
'ClusterIt' is a suite of software to allow easy maintenance of large groups of machines. It does not provide a parallel programing environment, but is used to managing one, or to manage massive server farms. Its features include parallel rsh, parallel copy, parallel virtual xterminals (xterms), and job scheduling facilities for performing parallel compiling. It also has programs to allow barrier syncing in shell scripts.
Coas
The Caldera Open Administration System project is designed to improve the way users administer their GNU/Linux systems. It will be a collection of tools, each of which will include multiple user interfaces. The system will also let users choose the tools they want to use.
Comfigure
'comfigure' simplifies the './configure'ing of packages. It remembers the 'configure' options for each one, and uses them automatically if called without options. 'comfigure' automatically recognizes the package name and version from the directory from which it was called. If the stored version is not equal to the current one, 'comfigure' calculates an MD5 digest sum over the output of './configure --help' to see if the available options have changed. If they have, the program asks the user what to do.
Config General
With Config::General you can read and write config files and access the parsed contents from a hash structure. The format of config files supported by Config::General is inspired by the Apache config format (and is 100% compatible with Apache configs). It also supports some enhancements such as here-documents, C-style comments, and multiline options.
Confstore
'confstore' is a configuration backup utility. It scans a system for all recognised configuration files and then stores them in a simple archive. It knows what to scan for by reading a definitions file. Confstore can also restore configuration from backup archives it has previously created, upload them to a FTP server, and mail them to an email account.
Congruit
Congruit is a lightweight configuration management and automation tool. It is written in Go but works through Bash. It manages shell scripts you created to configure your GNU/Linux platforms.
Convmv
'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. 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. It can also convert from normalization form C (UTF-8 NFC) to NFD and vice-versa.
Cpuid
This is a fairly complete CPU identification utility that executes the CPUID instruction on x86-family CPUs and decodes the results into English descriptions. It has been tested on several Intel, AMD (including Athlon/Duron) and Cyrix CPUs. If the Pentium III serial number misfeature is present and enabled, this program will display it.
Createusers
Createusers adds users in bulk. It also sets up new users' home directories for personal Web space with Apache. The companion program, removeusers, eliminates users from the system. The latest release includes a graphical user interface, based on Tcl/tk.
Cryptsetup
ryptsetup is utility used to conveniently setup disk encryption based on dm-crypt kernel module, including plain dm-crypt volumes, LUKS volumes, loop-AES and TrueCrypt compatible format. Cryptsetup is backwards compatible with the on-disk format of cryptoloop, but also supports more secure formats. This package includes support for automatically configuring encrypted devices at boot time via the config file /etc/crypttab. Additional features are cryptoroot support through initramfs-tools and several supported ways to read a passphrase or key.
Current
Current is a server implementation for Red Hat's up2date tools. It's designed for small to medium departments to be able to set up and run their own up2date server, feeding new applications and security patches to workstations/servers. The program is specifically intended for the experienced sysadmin with many machines to deal with.
Daemon
'daemon' turns other processes into daemons. Many tedious tasks are required to set up a daemon process; 'daemon' performs these tasks for other processes. This is useful for writing daemons in languages other than C, C++, or Perl (e.g. sh, Java). If you want to write daemons in languages that can link against C functions (e.g. C, C++), see libslack, which contains the core functionality of daemon.
DataStatix
DataStatix is a free software for GNU/Linux and Windows useful to manage data of every kind (although it has been written to manage biomedical data), to create descriptive statistics and graphs and to export items easily to R environment or to other statistic softwares. In order to handle properly big amount of data and many concurrent users, DataStatix works with MySql database and it has been developed and tested with MySql community edition 5.5. Some features of the software are: users management (create, delete, modify password) within the software; different users levels of data access (administrator, default, read only); user defined templates (models) of data, to create new databases easily; importation and esportation of data in CSV format (used also by Calc and Excel); updating of existing data from a CSV file created with DataStatix; descriptive statistics from every data (some more kind of statistics to come); graphs from every data.
Dbtoy
DBToy is a FUSE-based filesystem for GNU/Linux that lets you browse the contents of a relational database through a set of directories and XML files. Additional formats can be obtained through XSL stylesheets.
DebSync
'DebSync' helps synchronize Debian GNU/Linux machines with respect to the list of packages installed. It retrieves the list of installed packages from a master host, and then installs or removes packages on other hosts to match the master's package list. It works over either ssh (default) or rsh, and does not have to be installed on any of the machines you want to manage.
Debfoster
Most Debian application packages depend on other packages, containing libraries or other utilities. When the application package is removed, the dependencies are still on the system. Debfoster can detect such "orphaned" dependencies (unlike apt and dpkg) and will clean them up. It can be used as a front-end to apt or standalone.
Delta Reporting
CFEngine promises and classes are stored in a central database and made available for advanced searches and reports via the command line and a modern Web interface.
Depot
'Depot' is a software management tool kfor maintaining third party and locally developed software in large heterogeneous computing environments. It integrates separately maintained software packages ('collections') into a common directory hierarchy (the 'software environment') consisting of a union of all the collections. A set of configuration options manages interactions and intersections between collections in the environment. Custom environments and complete test environments can be created for machines or sets of machines. Collections with problems can be removed or replaced with previous versions. Individual collections or files can be moved from remote to local filesystems.
Detect
'detect' can be used in any program that needs hardware detection features such as configuration tools, installation programs, etc. You can use it to detect sound cards, CPUs, networking devices, webcams, joysticks, etc. It scans the IDE, PCI, ISA, USB, and SCSI busses to find hardware.
Detox
'detox' is a utility designed to clean up filenames, especially those created on other operating systems. It replaces non-standard characters, such as spaces or Latin-1 characters, with standard equivalents. It also removes or replaces CGI escaped ASCII characters, and trims excessive underscores and hyphens. It will not overwrite to a file that already exists, and does not touch special files normally (although it can be asked to).
Devlabel
This is a candidate for deletion: Links broken. No links to page. Email to maintainer broken.Poppy-one (talk) 13:03, 29 July 2018 (EDT) 'Devlabel' dynamically creates symbolic links to disk/partition names. It uses the disk's and/or partition's unique identifiers to keep the symlink pointed to the correct location even if the underlying partition's name has changed. So, regardless of whether /dev/sdb6 becomes /dev/sdc6, devlabel points the symlink to the correct data.
DirList
DirList is a user directory system that runs as a CGI to serve up user lists, search for various user attributes, view their web sites, define personalised user attributes, and keep it all synchronized automatically with the underlying operating system's user database on periodic intervals with cron.
Diradm
'diradm' is a script for managing POSIX users and groups stored in a LDAP directory, offering the same features as the traditional passwd file utilities useradd/usermod/userdel and groupadd/groupmod/groupdel. It uses the ldapsearch, ldapadd, ldapmodify, and ldapdelete utilities from the OpenLDAP project to perform the needed queries against the LDAP database.
Disktype
The purpose of disktype is to detect the content format of a disk or disk image. It regonizes 36 different file systems, partition tables, archive and compression formats, and boot codes.
Distribulator
'Distribulator' is an SSH-based command execution and file transfer utility that includes support for batch, console, and shell integration modes, multiple server environments, and auditing via syslog.
Ds
ds [-x] [@<container>] <command> [<arg>...] DockerScripts is a shell script framework for Docker. Each container is like a virtual machine that has an application installed inside. Each container has a base directory where the settings of the container are stored (in the file settings.sh). The command ds picks the parameters that it needs from the file settings.sh in the container's directory. Normally the commands are issued from inside the container's directory, however the option @<container> can be used to specify the context of the command. The option -x can be used for debugging.
DupeFinder
' DupeFinder' locates, moves, renames, and deletes duplicate files in a directory structure. It's good both for users who haven't kept their hard drives very well organized and need to do some cleaning to free space, and for users who like to keep lots of backup copies of important data "just in case" something bad should happen.
Dupmerge
'dupmerge' reads a list of files from standard input (eg., as produced by "find . -print") and looks for identical files. When it finds two or more identical files, all but one are unlinked to reclaim the disk space and recreated as hard links to the remaining copy.
Dupseek
Dupseek groups files by size, then reads and compares small chunks of the files of the same size. It creates smaller groups depending on these comparisons. It proceeds with bigger and bigger chunks (of size up to a hard-coded limit). It stops reading from files as soon as they form a single-element group or they are read completely (which only happens when they have a very high probability of having duplicates). The program does remove files, but it asks first. Dupseek aims for maximum efficiency by keeping file reads to a minimum and is much better than other similar programs when dealing with groups of large files of the same size. It can be interrupted at any moment. The user is then presented with partial results and can either intervene manually or go on with the reading and computation, on a group-by-group basis.
Durruter
Durruter is a command-line wizard to manage iptables entries like in a hardware router web interface. Forward ports and ranges from multiple interfaces, allow internet traffic from multiple nets to multiple network interfaces.
E2fsprogs
The Ext2 Filesystem Utilities (e2fsprogs) package contains essential ext2 filesystem utilities which consists of e2fsck, mke2fs, debugfs, dumpe2fs, tune2fs, and most of the other core ext2 filesystem utilities.
EPM
The ESP Package Manager (EPM) is a simple tool that generates software and patch distributions in various formats, including AT&T software packages ("pkg") used by Solaris, Debian ("dpkg"), HP-UX software packages ("swinstall" or "depot"), IRIX Software Manager ("inst" or "tardist"), portable (installation and removal scripts with tar files), and Red Hat Package Manager ("RPM").
Epkg
This is a candidate for deletion: 1. Cannot download files: Reference: http://web.archive.org/web/20150620013703/http://www.encap.org/epkg/ Usable unofficial source: https://github.com/DanGrayson/epkg 'epkg' is a package manager which uses the Encap Package Management System, a method for flexibly handling installation and management of third-party software on a Unix system. Encap places each package in its own subdirectory, then automatically manages symlinks to their appropriate places in /usr/local. epkg supports the Encap 2.0 package format, which includes postinstall scripts and prerequisite checking. Other features include builtin tar/gzip extraction, optional builtin FTP support, transaction logging, and the ability to automatically upgrade a package to the latest version.
Extended Operating System Loader
Extended Operating System Loader is a project to creats a free boot manager with a true GUI interface, where ease of use, usability and user interface are the main concerns. A secondary goal is reuse: where possible, any part of the project should be developed in such a way that it is reusable for other related and unrelated projects. This includes, but is not limited to, the source code for specific and general modules. The package currently contains a kernel, some drivers and a windowing system.
FAI
FAI installs a Debian GNU/Linux operating system on a PC cluster. You take one or more virgin PCs, turn on the power, and the program installs, configures and runs GNU/Linux on the whole cluster without any interaction necessary. FAI uses the Debian distribution and a collection of shell- and Perl-scripts for the installation process. Cfengine, shell, and Perl scripts make changes to the configuration files of the operating system. Using FAI, a fully automatic installation of a GNU/Linux cluster which consists of 16 dual Pentium PC's was performed. FAI's target group are system administrators who must install Debian onto one or even hundreds of computers. Because it's a general purpose installation tool, it can be used for installing a beowulf cluster, a rendering farm or a GNU/Linux laboratory or a classroom. Also, large-scale linux networks with different hardware and different installation requirements are easy to establish using FAI.
FAUS
FAUS is a Perl CGI script that manages users for both Smaba and *nix systems through a Web interface. It uses sudo to give the rights to the Apache user to run some (limited) scripts as root, features different forms of authentication when using Apache, offers multilanguage support, and has log support.
Fdisk Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Fdisk‎ provides libparted-based alternatives to classic partitioning tools like util-linux fdisk and cfdisk. Implementations targeted are also:
  • util-linux sfdisk
  • mac-fdisk
  • FreeBSD fdisk
Fdutils
'fdutils' contains utilities for configuring and debugging the GNU/Linux floppy driver, for formatting extra capacity disks (up to 1992K on a high density disk), and for sending raw commands to the floppy controller. It includes:
# superformat: formats high capacity disks # fdmount: automatically mounts/unmounts disks when they are inserted/removed # xdfcopy: formats, reads and writes OS/2's XDF disks. # MAKEFLOPPIES: creates the floppy devices in /dev # getfdprm: prints the current disk geometry # setfdprm: sets the current disk geometry # fdrawcmd: sends raw commands to the floppy driver # floppycontrol: configures the floppy driver
