This package provides Linux kernel headers, the kernel API description
required for compilation of almost all programs. This is the userspace
interface; compiling external kernel modules requires
kernel-(flavor)-devel, or kernel-syms to pull in all kernel-*-devel,
packages, instead.


Programs and man pages for configuring and using the LVM2 Logical
Volume Manager.

A daemon for using LVM2 Logival Volumes in a clustered environment.


GNU m4 is an implementation of the traditional Unix macro processor.


The GNU make command with extensive documentation.


Nast is a packet sniffer and a LAN analyzer based on Libnet and Libpcap.

It can sniff in normal mode or in promiscuos mode the packets on a network interface and log it. It dumps the headers of packets and
the payload in ascii or ascii-hex format. You can apply a filter. The sniffed data can be saved in a separated file.

As analyzer tool, it has many features like:
* Build LAN hosts list
* Follow a TCP-DATA stream
* Find LAN internet gateways
* Discorver promiscous nodes
* Reset an established connection
* Perform a single half-open portscanner
* Perform a multi half-open portscanner
* Find link type (hub or switch)
* Catch daemon banner of LAN nodes
* Control arp answers to discover possible arp-spoofings
* Byte couting with an optional filter
* Write reports logging

It also provides a new ncurses interface


This package contains nbd-server. It is the server backend for the nbd
network block device driver that's in the Linux kernel.

nbd can be used to have a filesystem stored on another machine. It does
provide a block device, not a file system; so unless you put a
clustering filesystem on top of it, you can't access it simultaneously
from more than one client. Use NFS or a real cluster FS (such as
ocfs2) if you want to do this. nbd-server can export a file (which may
contain a filesystem image) or a partition. Swapping over nbd is
possible as well, though it's said not to be safe against OOM and
should not be used for that case. nbd-server also has a copy-on-write
mode where changes are saved to a separate file and thrown away when
the connection closes.

The package also contains the nbd-client tools, which you need to
configure the nbd devices on the client side.

This package contains essential programs for network administration and
maintenance: netstat, hostname, arp, ifconfig, rarp, and route.

netconsole is a kernel feature to log the dmesg output via the network.
The used network driver must support the polling function.

netconsole-server is a wrapper for insmod to load netconsole.o with the
correct options. Use netcat on the client side to receive the kernel

A interim network configuration library, currently implementing the
libnetcf interface for libvirt.

Command line tools for viewing and setting ACLs (Access Control Lists)
when using NFSv4 to access a remote filesystem. The remote filesystem
must also support ACLs.

Obex-Data-Server provides a obex dbus api. Used for bluetooth
applications to transfer and receive data.


For reference, read RFC2440. Due to some possible security problems,
the library also implements parts of

The aim of the library is not to replace any available OpenPGP version.
There is no real support for key management (sign, revoke, alter
preferences, etc.) and some other parts are only rudimentarily
available. The main purpose is to handle and understand OpenPGP packets
and to use basic operations. For example, to encrypt and decrypt, sign
and verify, and provide packet routines.

This package detects other OSes available on a system and outputs the results
in a generic machine-readable format. Support for new OSes and Linux
distributions can be added easily.


The PCRE library is a set of functions that implement regular
expression pattern matching using the same syntax and semantics
as Perl 5.


This tool allows you to edit Mac partition tables.

NOTE: This is **NOT** backwards compatible with the pre-1.99 versions.
This is entirely OO-based, hence any older scripts relying on the
old versions will need to be rewritten.

Provides modules: Net::Gen, Net::Inet, Net::TCP, Net::UDP, Net::UNIX,
Net::TCP::Server, and Net::UNIX::Server.

Net::IPv4Addr provides functions for parsing IPv4 addresses both in
traditional address/netmask format and in the new CIDR format. There
are also methods for calculating the network and broadcast address and
also to see check if a given address is in a specific network.

This module provides an object-oriented abstraction on top of IP addresses
or IP subnets, that allows for easy manipulations. Version 4.xx of
NetAdder::IP will will work older versions of Perl and does *not* use
Math::BigInt as in previous versions.

The internal representation of all IP objects is in 128 bit IPv6 notation.
IPv4 and IPv6 objects may be freely mixed.

This is an implementation of Term::ReadLine using the GNU
Readline/History Library. This package also has the interface with the
almost all functions and variables which are documented in the GNU
Readline/History Library Manual.


A parallel implementation of gzip for modern multi-processor,
multi-core machines


PolicyKit is a toolkit for defining and handling authorizations.
It is used for allowing unprivileged processes to speak to privileged

Powerpc32 is a simple utility for compiling PowerPC32 packages on
PowerPC64 machines. Powerpc32 creates an environment for the specified
program (shell) and all child processes. In the created environment,
uname -m returns ppc, so you can create 32 bit PowerPC programs.


pwgen generates random, meaningless but pronounceable and thus easy to
remember passwords. The also contained makepasswd gives even more
options which are more aimed at security.
