There are utilities for fetching INQUIRY data and VPD, mode, and log pages. There is support for modern SCSI transports such as SAS and FCP. The package is written for Linux and has been ported to FreeBSD, Solaris, Tru64, and Windows. There is an earlier version of this package for Linux 2.2 series kernels called sg_utils.

Release Notes: Support for memory-mapped IO with sgm_dd, extensions to sg_rbuf, a new sg_read command to read continually from the same offset, and placing the isosize command in the archive directory since it is available in the util-linux-2.10s (and later) package.

Download Website 31 Dec 16:10 User-mode Linux 0.54-2.4.17


User-Mode Linux lets you run Linux inside Linux. It is a safe, secure way of running Linux versions and Linux processes. Run buggy software, experiment with new Linux kernels or distributions, and poke around in the internals of Linux, all without risking your main Linux setup. User-Mode Linux gives you a virtual machine that may have more hardware and software virtual resources than your actual, physical computer. You can assign your virtual machine only the hardware access you want it to have. With properly limited access, nothing you do on the virtual machine can change or damage your real computer or its software.

Release Notes: Updated to 2.4.17. UML consoles and serial lines may now be attached to host ports. It can be shut down by sending it SIGINT or SIGTERM. The GP registers are now properly stored in core files. Some buffer overruns in uml_net were fixed.

Input, if required by your template, may come from AutoGen definitions, CGI data, or XML files.

Release Notes: The file getdefs/proto.h: was previously left out of the distribution. A getdefs bug has been fixed: when an extracted value started on the line following the value name, it was prepended with the line prefix text.

Download Website 31 Dec 14:19 Install Kernel 0.8.2


Install Kernel (ik) is a bash script that installs the Linux kernel and automatically sets up LILO or GRUB. It also saves your kernel configuration each time you do an install. This allows you to restore the newest configuration file when you make a new kernel. This script is intended for two groups of people; people new to compiling kernels, and people who are tired of moving files around and editing their bootloader configurations every time they install a new kernel.

Release Notes: The hardcoded link check for the modules has been fixed. Another module check has been added which is used to check if the user once had modules off and then turned them back on. The check works by verifying the state of the modules (whether they are on or off) by checking the config file. One less command is used for removing and linking the new System.map when installing the kernel.

Release Notes: This release uses XML::LibXML instead of XML::XPath. Core Perl modules now install into the Perl tree. Support has been added to disable services or zone paths in the config file. You can now match MAC addresses when using limitFrom. A bug that would cause some paths to be skipped over if a zone was disabled and a path was processed referencing that zone has been fixed.

Download Website 31 Dec 08:25 udpcast 20011231


UDPCast allows to send data simultaneously to many destinations on a local net. This can for instance be used to install entire classrooms of PCs at once. The advantage over using other methods (nfs, ftp, whatever) is that udpcast uses Ethernet's multicast abilities: it won't take longer to install 15 machines than it would to install 2. The tool comes with a busybox bootdisk for easy loading of the tool. However, udpcast can also be started from the command line of an already installed system, and can be used for other purposes than just system installation.

Release Notes: socklib was fixed so that it no longer requires the presence of the in_addr_t type. The --mcast-addr flag was ignored in previous version, and has now been fixed. A new --mcast-all-addr flag was added in order to override the default broadcast/multicast address used for finding peers.
