The Bubbling Load Monitor  is a system CPU and memory load monitor for the GNOME panel.

Linux HeadQuaters  - The LinuxHQ Web Sites tries to organize and catalog many of the Linux related kernel patches in one central location. Also, this site maintains an active archive of the linux-kernel mailing list, as well as, some other useful Linux information.

syslog-notify  - a utilty for modern Linux (and other Unix-like) desktops, provides a convenient pop-up display for messages that would otherwise be written unnoticed to the system logs. The choice of messages to display (from all messages to only the most critical) is completely configurable through the standard syslog configuration files.

XFree86  - is the underlying software that is between the hardware and graphical user interface (aka gui) that people see and use. If you are using KDE, GNOME, Enlightenment, Blackbox, AfterStep, twm or fvwm then you are already using and running XFree86 as these run as our clients.

FAI  - is a non-interactive system to install, customize and manage Linux systems and software configurations on computers as well as virtual machines and chroot environments, from small networks to large-scale infrastructures and clusters. It's a tool for mass unattended Linux installation. You can take one or more virgin PC's, turn on the power, and after a few minutes, the systems are installed, and completely configured to your exact needs, without any interaction necessary.

Memtest86  - is a Stand-alone Memory Diagnostic for x86 architecture computers. BIOS based memory tests are only a quick check and often miss many of the failures that are detected by Memtest86. Memtest86 is released under the Gnu Public License (GPL).

pm-utils (Power Management Utilities)  - is a small collection of scripts that handle suspend and resume on behalf of HAL.

irqtune  - is a Linux IRQ Priority Optimizer. irqtune changes the IRQ priority of devices to allow devices that require high priority and fast service (e.g. serial ports, modems) to have it. With irqtune, a 3X speedup of serial/modem throughput is possible.

Phoronix Test Suite  - is the most comprehensive testing and benchmarking platform available for Linux and is designed to carry out qualitative and quantitative benchmarks in a clean, reproducible, and easy-to-use manner. This software is open-source and licensed under the GNU GPLv3 and consists of a lightweight core (pts-core) with each benchmark consisting of an XML-based profile with related utility scripts. The process from the benchmark installation, to the actual benchmarking, to the parsing of important hardware and software components is heavily automated and completely repatable, asking users only for confirmation of actions.

XHDBench  - graphisches LINUX-Tool aehnlich dem Adaptec-Bench fuer Windows, das sich nicht auf die Geraete am Adaptec beschraenkt.

Powertweak  - is a program to tune your kernel and hardware settings for optimal performance. It has both a graphical GTK GUI as a textmode interface.

Submount  - Its purpose is to automatically mount and unmount cd, floppy, and other removable media drives while remaining entirely invisible to the user.

ivman  - is a simple daemon to automount cd-roms, play audio cds or dvds,... Something like Gnome-Volume-Manager, but without all Gnome-deps, and (initially) no GUI, using Dbus and Hal.

UNetbootin  - allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for a variety of Linux distributions from Windows or Linux, without requiring you to burn a CD. You can either let it download one of the many distributions supported out-of-the-box for you, or supply your own Linux .iso file if you've already downloaded one or your preferred distribution isn't on the list.

x86-64 Linux  - This site is dedicated to porting open source software to the AMD64 architecture, including: GNU/Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD.

Linux USB  - This web site was created to serve as a central point of information for USB support under Linux.

GNU Parted  - is a program for creating, destroying, resizing, checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganising disk usage, copying data on hard disks and disk imaging. It contains a library, libparted, and a command-line frontend, parted, which also serves as a sample implementation and script backend.

GParted  - is the Gnome Partition Editor application. The purpose of GParted is to allow the individual to take a hard disk and change the partition organization therein, while preserving the partition contents. GParted uses GNU libparted to detect and manipulate devices and partition tables.

QTParted  - is a Partition Magic clone written in C++ using the Qt toolkit.

Partimage  - is a Linux utility which saves partitions having a supported filesystem to an image file. Most Linux and Windows filesystems are supported. The image file can be compressed with the gzip / bzip2 programs to save disk space, and they can be splitted into multiple files to be copied on CDs / DVDs, ... Partitions can also be saved across the network since version 0.6.0 using the partimage network support, or using Samba / NFS. If you don't want to install Partimage, you can download and burn SystemRescueCd. It's a live-cd that allows to use Partimage immediately even if your computer has no operating system installed (useful to restore an image), and it allows to save an image on a DVD on the fly.

Clonezilla  - is a partition or disk clone tool similar to Norton Ghost. It saves and restores only used blocks in hard drive. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (Server Edition).

Device Image  - is an easy to use software solution to perform a system disaster recovery or fast backup- restore operations of whole disk device or its partition without a deep knowledge of software functionality.

NTFS-3G Read/Write Driver  - is a stable, read/write NTFS driver for Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenSolaris, QNX, Haiku, and other commercial operating systems. It provides safe handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 NTFS file systems.

Linux-NTFS Project  - The goals are: create a new Linux kernel driver for NTFS, user space utilities (e.g. format, ntfs check, etc.) and a library to avoid code duplication and provide access to NTFS to other GPLed programs.

Ext2 Installable File System for Windows  - provides Windows NT4.0/2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008 with full access to Linux Ext2 volumes (read access and write access). This may be useful if you have installed both Windows and Linux as a dual boot environment on your computer.

XtreemFS  - is a distributed and replicated file system for the Internet. XtreemFS allows you to mount and access your files via the internet from anywhere. With XtreemFS you can easily replicate your files across data-centers to reduce network consumption, latency and increase data availability. XtreemFS implements striping of files over several storage servers for increased I/O bandwidth and capacity. This is similar to RAID0. Paralell I/O ensures that read/write operations are executed in parallel on the storage servers to exploit the full bandwidth.

GKrellM  - is a single process stack of system monitors which supports applying themes to match its appearance to your window manager, Gtk, or any other theme.

GKrellM skins repository  - offers a tarball with many GKrellM skins. You can also view the skins (sorted) to download only single GKrellM skins.

CheckInstall  - creates a Slackware, RPM or Debian compatible package and installs it with Slackware's installpkg, "rpm -i" or Debian's "dpkg -i" as appropriate, so you can view its contents with pkgtool or remove it with removepkg. It also leaves a copy of the installed package in the source directory so you can install it wherever you want, without having to recompile.

Sinstall  - is a flexible source package installer. It's able to build and install any kind of source, trace make install installations, and create uninstall records. It's also able to correct some configure and make errors, optimize the compilation, check existing installations, download packages, guess configure parameters and Makefile's targets, find dependencies, and create distribution packages.

the poldek  - is a full-featured frontend to RPM package manager. Its core features are similar to every modern package updater like APT. Features include package installation, upgrading and removal with automatic dependency handling, querying/ search the package database and many more.

APT for SuSE  - binary packages of APT and synaptic for SuSE Linux.

APT for Red Hat, Yellow Dog Linux and Fedora  - binary packages of APT for most Red Hat Linux releases, Yellow Dog Linux and Fedora.

APT4rpm  - At these pages an attempt is made to introduce the Advanced Package Tool (APT), originally developed for the Debian Linux distribution, to users of rpm based Linux systems.

yum  - is an automatic updater and package installer/ remover for rpm systems. It automatically computes dependencies and figures out what things should occur to install packages.

Emerde  - is the port of Gentoo's portage system that installs, removes, updates, mantains your system rapidly and easily. Furthermore on Slackware distribution it cooperates with the Slackware's db and allows to install .tgz files directly, using dependeces checking.

Alien  - is a program that allows you to convert LSB, Red Hat, Stampede, Slackware and Debian packages to any of the other formats. This is a tool only suitable for binary packages.
