lma-init is a set of shell scripts that aim at replacing the scripts run during system bootup and runlevel changes. At the moment, only serious hackers should attempt to install this package due to the lack of documentation. Apart from being colourful, it's ideal for large-site-administration with remote distribution systems since the whole configuration can be done using a single file, if necessary.

Vit 2.01

mmounter tries to mimic the behaviour of MacOS with regards to automatic monitoring and mounting of the volumes in your system (CDs, ZIP disks, floppies, HDs) using their volume name as the mount point. It will optionally eject devices and let users mount/umount them. Currently mmounter supports ext2, ext3, iso9660 (CD), HFS, and VFAT. This tool is user-space only (doesn't require any kernel patching) and should be fairly portable.
