Description:
Downloader for pc532 monitor ROM. This is 'pc532down', a utility to support downloading to the monitor ROM on a pc532 system. If you don't already know what a pc532 is, you don't want to know, and you don't want this utility. This utility is also provided as part of the pc532 distribution of NetBSD under the name 'download.c'.

kernel-package

*download (44 Kb)
Version: 3.19 Last modified: Sat Mar 1 17:35:42 1997
Architecture: all
Maintainer:
Manoj Srivastava <srivasta@debian.org>
Description:
Debian Linux kernel package build scripts. This package provides the capability to create a debian kernel-image package by just running make-kpkg kernel_image in a kernel source directory tree. It can also build the kernel source package as a debian file, the kernel headers package. In general, this package is very useful if you need to create a custom kernel, if, for example, the default kernel does not support some of your hardware, or you wish a leaner, meaner kernel.

If you are running on an intel x86 platform, and you wish to compile a custom kernel (why else are you considering this package?), then you may need the package bin86 as well. (This is not required on other platforms).

Depends:
perl (>= 5.002-8), dpkg (>= 1.4), dpkg-dev

screen

*download (181 Kb)
Version: 3.7.2-2 Last modified: Fri Feb 21 11:54:08 1997
Architecture: m68k
Maintainer:
joost witteveen <joostje@debian.org>
Description:
A screen manager with VT100/ANSI terminal emulation. screen is a terminal multiplexor that runs several separate "screens" on a single physical character-based terminal. Each virtual terminal emulates a DEC VT100 plus several ANSI X3.64 and ISO 2022 functions. Arbitrary keyboard input translation is also available. Sessions can be detached and resumed later on a different terminal.
Depends:
libc5 (>= 5.4.17-1), ncurses3.0

gpm

*download (84 Kb)
Version: 1.10-6 Last modified: Fri Feb 21 11:53:11 1997
Architecture: m68k
Maintainer:
Martin Schulze <joey@infodrom.north.de>
Description:
General Purpose Mouse Interface This package provides a daemon that listens to the mouse when the console is displayed, and delivers them to applications.

The default when no application is running is to emulate "selection", i.e. allow cut-and-paste with the mouse on the console the same way as under X.

An Emacs lisp file is provided to use the mouse in emacs, when emacs is running on the console.

Depends:
libc5 (>= 5.4.17-1), ncurses3.0

eject

*download (9 Kb)

Architecture: i386
Maintainer:
Christoph Lameter <clameter@debian.org>
Description:
ejects CDs and operates CD-Changers under Linux This little program will eject CD-ROMs (assuming your drive supports the CDROMEJECT ioctl). It also allows setting the autoeject feature, currently supported by a number of the Linux CD-ROM drivers. See the documentation in /usr/src/linux/Documentation for more information on the autoeject feature.

On supported ATAPI/IDE multi-disc CD-ROM changers, it allows changing the active disc

lee

*download (96 Kb)
Version: 1.1-2 Last modified: Wed Feb 5 09:20:43 1997
Architecture: m68k
Maintainer:
Karl Sackett <krs@debian.org>
Description:
Latent Energy Environment. LEE (Latent Energy Environments) is both an Alife model and a software tool to be used for simulations within the framework of that model. The modeling of environmental complexity across different Alife experiments is perhaps the main motivation behind this project. LEE allows the specification of environments of graduated complexity. A spacially distributed series of "atomic elements" must be combined to transform their "latent potential energy" into "work" necessary for survival. Behavioral strategies must be evolved by the population such as to allow an efficient exploitation of the available energy. This latent energy can be used to measure the environment complexity with respect to the survival task.

Description:
obsolete utilities package miscutils is an obsolete package and may be removed safely. miscutils was replaced by the following packages: getty, login, util-linux, update, fdutils, debianutils, passwd.

Since fdutils is not required, it must be installed separately.

Version: 2.10-3 Last modified: Fri Jan 24 14:32:41 1997
Architecture: i386
Maintainer:
James Troup <jjtroup@comp.brad.ac.uk>
Description:
manipulate archives of files in compressed form Zoo is used to create and maintain collections of files in compressed form. It uses a Lempel-Ziv compression algorithm that gives space savings in the range of 20% to 80% depending on the type of file data. Zoo can store and selectively extract multiple generations of the same file.

libc5 (>= 5.4.0-0)
