xntp3

*download (180 Kb)
Version: 5.89-1 Last modified: Wed Mar 19 22:59:48 1997

Maintainer:
Bdale Garbee <bdale@gag.com>
Description:
Network Time Protocol clients and server The Network Time Protocol allows for the synchronization of clocks on networked computers. The xntpd daemon implements NTP, allowing Unix systems to participate in this synchronization.

NTP was designed with attention to details which might introduce systematic bias into the computations, and the protocol is capable of syncronizing with even the most precise external time sources.

The NTP protocol supported by xntpd is defined in RFC's 1059, 1119, and 1305 for versions 1, 2, and 3, respectively. For more information on how NTP works, and how to configure a campus of xntpd daemons, load the optional Debian package 'xntp3-doc'.

Depends:
libc5 (>= 5.4.0-0)

xlockmore

*download (204 Kb)
Version: 4.01-2 Last modified: Wed Mar 19 22:59:44 1997
Architecture: i386
Maintainer:
Dirk Eddelbuettel <edd@debian.org>
Description:
Lock X11 display until password is entered. xlock locks the X server till the user enters his/her password at the keyboard. While xlock is running, all new server connections are refused. The screen saver is disabled. The mouse cursor is turned off. The screen is blanked and a changing pattern is put on the screen. If a key or a mouse button is pressed then the user is prompted for the password of the user who started xlock. xlockmore extends the standard xlock program by adding many more modes that are highly configurable.

Note that under XFree86, the X11 implementation for Linux, Control- Alt-Backspace will defeat the locking mechanism and return your console back unless you put "DontZap" in your XF86Config file. 'xdm' returns to the login prompt. Control-Alt-F1 (among others) will defeat locking mechanism with virtual terminals, so make sure that you are not logged onto any virtual consoles.

Depends:
libc5 (>= 5.4.0-0), xlib6 (>= 3.2-0)
Conflicts:
xtrlock

Description:
A software watchdog The watchdog program writes to /dev/watchdog every ten seconds. If the device is open but not written to within a minute the machine will reboot. Each write delays the reboot time another minute. The ability to reboot will depend on the state of the machines and interrupts. To use this software at least a version 1.3.52 kernel is needed.

This comes by default with XEmacs.
