metapackage for CUDA-savvy BOINC client and manager

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a software platform for distributed computing: several initiatives of various scientific disciplines all compete for the idle time of desktop computers. The developers' web site at the University of Berkeley serves as a common portal to the otherwise independently run projects. . Regular users (righteously) often find it an unbearable nuisance to care for the exact configuration of BOINC for CUDA-savvy graphics cards. This package adds a series of dependencies from the non-free section to the regular boinc package. This also meant this binary package to be redistributed in the contrib section of Debian.


metapackage for AMD/ATI OpenCL-savvy BOINC client and manager

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a software platform for distributed computing: several initiatives of various scientific disciplines all compete for the idle time of desktop computers. The developers' web site at the University of Berkeley serves as a common portal to the otherwise independently run projects. . Regular users (righteously) often find it an unbearable nuisance to care for the configuration of BOINC for the OpenCL-savvy AMD/ATI graphics cards. This package adds a series of dependencies from the non-free section to the regular boinc package. This also meant this binary package to be redistributed in the contrib section of Debian. . This package is not perfect, yet. A major problem for the moment is the availability of the OpenCL driver for 32bit binaries for amd64. If this is planned, install the amd-app package provided through the AMD developer forum.

distributed social networking service - installer

Diaspora (currently styled diaspora* and formerly styled DIASPORA*) is a free personal web server that implements a distributed social networking service. Installations of the software form nodes (termed "pods") which make up the distributed Diaspora social network. . Diaspora is intended to address privacy concerns related to centralized social networks by allowing users to set up their own server (or "pod") to host content; pods can then interact to share status updates, photographs, and other social data. It allows its users to host their data with a traditional web host, a cloud-based host, an ISP, or a friend. The framework, which is being built on Ruby on Rails, is free software and can be experimented with by external developers. . Learn more about Diaspora at http://diasporafoundation.org . This dummy package downloads diaspora (also pulling in runtime dependencies as rubygems) and configures it to use PostgreSQL and Nginx. . Unlike the normal Debian package, this package installs exact versions of the dependencies supported by upstream.

/contrib/dynagen/dynagen

Cisco 7200 Router Emulator Command Line Interface

Dynagen is a text-based front end for Dynamips, that uses the Hypervisor mode for communication with Dynamips. Dynagen simplifies building and working with virtual networks: * Uses a simple, easy to understand configuration file for specifying virtual router hardware configurations * Simple syntax for interconnecting routers, bridges, frame-relay and ATM switches. No need to deal with NetIOs * Can work in a client / server mode, with Dynagen running on your workstation communicating to Dynamips running on a back-end server. Dynagen can also control multiple Dynamips servers simultaneously for distributing large virtual networks across several machines. * Provides a management CLI for listing devices, starting, stopping, reloading, suspending, and resuming virtual routers.

GeoLite binary database (downloader)

GeoIP is a C library that enables the user to find the country that any IP address or hostname originates from. It uses a file-based database. . This package contains a script that downloads the latest version of the binary flavor of the four MaxMind GeoLite databases (Country, IPv6 Country, City, and ASN). . These databases simply contain IP blocks as keys, and countries/cities/ASNs as values, which should be more complete and accurate than using reverse DNS lookups. . The MaxMind database itself is made available under a DFSG-compatible license. However, it is distributed directly in binary format and the source code for generating it is not provided.


MaxMind GeoIP/GeoIP2 database updates

The GeoIP Update program performs automatic updates of GeoIP2 and GeoLite2 binary databases, as supplied by MaxMind. These may be MaxMind's paid products, or their GeoLite variants that are less accurate but provided without charge.

/contrib/gns3/gns3

Graphical Network Simulator

GNS3 is a graphical network simulator that allows simulation of complex networks and to launch simulations on them. It is an excellent complementary tool to real labs for administrators of Cisco networks or people wanting to pass their CCNA, CCNP, CCIP or CCIE certifications. It can also be used to experiment with features of Cisco IOS or to check configurations that need to be deployed later on real routers. . You may configure devices ranging from Cisco routers, Cisco PIX firewalls, Cisco ASA Firewalls, Cisco IDS to JunOS routers using Qemu or Pemu. GNS3 uses dynamips as an emulation back end, an IOS emulator which allows users to run IOS binary images from Cisco Systems. . Cisco IOS, PIX, ASA or JunOS software images are not included.

/contrib/horst/horst

Highly Optimized Radio Scanning Tool

horst is a small, lightweight IEEE802.11 wireless LAN analyzer with a text interface. Its basic function is similar to tcpdump, Wireshark or Kismet, but it's much smaller and shows different, aggregated information which is not easily available from other tools. It is mainly targeted at debugging wireless LANs with a focus on ad-hoc (IBSS) mode in larger mesh networks. It can be useful to get a quick overview of what is happening on all wireless LAN channels and to identify problems. . * Shows signal/noise values per station * Calculates channel utilization ("usage") by adding up the amount of time the packets actually occupy the medium * "Spectrum Analyzer" shows signal levels and usage per channel Graphical packet history, with signal/noise, packet type and physical rate * Shows all stations per ESSID and the live TSF per node as it is counting * Detects IBSS "splits" (same ESSID but different BSSID \u2013 this is a common driver problem) * Statistics of packets/bytes per physical rate and per packet type * Has some support for mesh protocols (OLSR and batman) * Can filter specific packet types source addresses or BSSIDs * Client/server support for monitoring on remote nodes


Share a file over Tor Hidden Services anonymously and securely.

OnionShare lets you securely and anonymously share a file of any size with someone. It works by starting a web server, making it accessible as a Tor hidden service, and generating an unguessable URL to access and download the file. It doesn't require setting up a server on the Internet somewhere or using a third party filesharing service. You host the file on your own computer and use a Tor hidden service to make it temporarily accessible over the Internet. The other user just needs to use the Tor Browser and to enter the URL to download the file from you.

installer package for the publicfile HTTP and FTP server

Publicfile is an HTTP and FTP server, written by Daniel J. Bernstein in 1999; it didn't change a lot after that. Modern features are not supported. However, if you're looking for a small, simple and secure webserver, which integrates with the runit and daemontools UNIX service managers, publicfile will suit your needs. . This installer package downloads the publicfile .tar.gz file from the upstream website, combines it with Debian packaging information from the package maintainer's website; then builds a publicfile Debian package, and installs that. When installing this installer package, one is given the option to postpone downloading and installing publicfile.

/contrib/pvpgn/pvpgn

gaming server that emulates Battle.net(R)

The server currently implements most of the same functionality as the real Battle.net(R) servers from Blizzard Entertainment. You can chat, play games, use / commands, and things like account passwords, user icons, ad banners, and channel operators work too. It is by no means complete, though.
