When installing on SLES, you need to have openSUSE:Backports/SUSE Package Hub repositories as well:
GDAL is a translator library for raster and vector geospatial data formats that is released under an X/MIT style Open Source license by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation.
GEOS (Geometry Engine - Open Source) is a C++ port of the Java Topology
Suite (JTS). As such, it aims to contain the complete functionality of JTS
in C++. This includes all the OpenGIS "Simple Features for SQL" spatial
predicate functions and spatial operators, as well as specific JTS topology
functions such as IsValid().
GPSBabel converts waypoints, tracks, and routes from one format to another, whether that format is a common mapping format like Delorme, Streets and Trips, or even a serial upload or download to a GPS unit such as those from Garmin and Magellan. By flattening the Tower of Babel that the authors of various programs for manipulating GPS data have imposed upon us, it returns to us the ability to freely move our own waypoint data between the programs and hardware we choose to use.
It contains extensive data manipulation abilities making it a convenient for server-side processing or as the backend for other tools.
It does not convert, transfer, send, or manipulate maps. We process data that may (or may not be) placed on a map, such as waypoints, tracks, and routes.
ZBar is an open source software suite for reading bar codes from various sources, such as video streams, image files and raw intensity sensors. It supports many popular symbologies (types of bar codes) including EAN-13/UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, Code 128, Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5 and QR Code.
The purpose of this project is to test packages before they are submitted to Application:Geo
This project collects the user applications of all the geosciences.
This project contains various time archiving tools/utilities. While building is enabled for other distributions then Tumbleweed/Factory, primary purpose of this project is development, not backporting for older releases. Do not add this project repositories to your systems unless you know what you are doing and are willing to fix issues you encounter.
Lepton is a tool and file format for losslessly compressing JPEGs by an
average of 22%.
This can be used to archive large photo collections, or to serve images
live and save 22% bandwidth.
LZFSE is a Lempel-Ziv style data compression algorithm using Finite State
Entropy coding. It targets similar compression rates at higher compression
and decompression speed compared to deflate using zlib.
Parchive creates extra parity data over several volumes. These can be
used to restore the complete archive after some data loss or
par2cmdline is a program for creating and using PAR2 files to detect damage in
data files and repair them if necessary. It can be used with any kind of file.
The XAR project aims to provide an easily extensible archive format. Important
design decisions include an easily extensible XML table of contents for random
access to archived files, storing the toc at the beginning of the archive to
allow for efficient handling of streamed archives, the ability to handle files
of arbitrarily large sizes, the ability to choose independent encodings for
individual files in the archive, the ability to store checksums for individual
files in both compressed and uncompressed form, and the ability to query the
table of content's rich meta-data.
Zoo is a packer based on the Lempel-Ziv algorithm. Lots of files on
DOS/AmigaDOS and TOS systems used this packer for their archives. The
compression rate of gzip is not reached, and thus zoo should only be used
for decompressing old archives.
Zstd, short for Zstandard, is a lossless compression algorithm,
targeting real-time compression scenarios at zlib-level compression ratio.
Zstd can also offer stronger compression ratios at the cost of
compression speed. Speed vs. compression trade-off is configurable by
small increments. Decompression speed is preserved and remains
roughly the same at all settings, a property shared by most LZ
compression algorithms, such as zlib or lzma.
This project contains various backup/restore tools. While building is enabled for other distributions then Tumbleweed/Factory, primary purpose of this project is development, not backporting for older releases. Do not add this project repositories to your systems unless you know what you are doing and are willing to fix issues you encounter.
aespipe program is AES encrypting or decrypting pipe. It reads from standard
input and writes to standard output. It can be used to create and restore
encrypted tar or cpio archives. It can be used to encrypt and decrypt loop-AES
compatible encrypted disk images.
htop is an interactive text-mode process viewer for Linux. It aims to be a
better 'top' and requires ncurses.
libiscsi is a clientside library to implement the iSCSI protocol
that can be used to access resource of an iSCSI target.
The libStorageMgmt library will provide a vendor agnostic open source storage
application programming interface (API) that will allow management of storage
arrays. The library includes a command line interface for interactive use and
scripting (command lsmcli). The library also has a daemon that is used for
executing plug-ins in a separate process (lsmd).
This project contains various benchmarks and related tools. While building is enabled for other distributions then Tumbleweed/Factory, primary purpose of this project is development, not backporting for older releases. Do not add this project repositories to your systems unless you know what you are doing and are willing to fix issues you encounter.
Blogbench is a portable filesystem benchmark that tries to reproduce the load
of a real-world busy file server. It stresses the filesystem with multiple
threads performing random reads, writes, and rewrites in order to get a
realistic idea of the scalability and the concurrency a system can handle.
Meabo is a multi-phased multi-purpose micro-benchmark. It is a highly
configurable tool which can be used for energy efficiency studies, ARM
big.LITTLE Linux scheduler analysis and DVFS studies. It can be used for
other benchmarking as well.
The micro-benchmark is composed of 10 phases that perform various generic
calculations (from memory to compute intensive). None of the compute
kernels are optimized for a specific architecture. The micro-benchmark is
easily extensible, provides performance counter readings (today) and energy
readings (in the future), has multi-core and flexible pinning support, and
allows the user to run each phase in different configurations/
One of the main benefits of this tool is that it is scalable beyond the
aforementioned investigations, and is useful for anyone who would like
to understand system behaviour, whilst running small, simple and
well-understood computational kernels. The level of flexibility built into
the application is an added benefit, as it gives the user full control of
what is being run, where it is run, and whether it's single or
multi-threaded, all within the same run of the application.
An extensible Vulkan benchmarking suite with targeted, configurable scenes.
