client to donate unused CPU cycles to distributed.net

Donate your extra CPU cycles to a worthy cause! . distributed.net started in 1997 as a project whose purpose was to win a series of contests sponsored by RSA Data Security Inc., to crack their RC5 encryption by brute-force methods. These contests were meant to show governments of nations such as the United States, who limit exports or use of cryptography, that the standards allowed are too weak for general use. . Since this time, distributed.net's focus has changed from solely cracking RSA's RC5 and DES projects to working on more diverse distributed computing problems. . The ongoing projects are RC5-72 and Optimal Golomb Rulers (28-mark), the latter of which has practical applications in science. There are also a number of other projects which are either periodic or upcoming. You may choose which project you wish to participate in. . Installing this package will allow unused CPU cycles on your computer to contribute to cracking the code. There should be no noticeable slowdown of your system, since the client runs niced, and only uses CPU time when your computer would otherwise be idle.

/non-free/hijra/hijra-applet

Hijri Islamic Calendar tray applet

Hijri Tray Applet for GNOME (also works with KDE) that uses Hijra Algorithm by Muayyad Saleh Alsadi provided by python-hijra package. . This algorithm is based on integer operations which that there is no round errors (given accurate coefficients) the accuracy of this algorithm is based on 3 constants (p, q and a) where p/q is the full months percentage [ gcd(p,q) must be 1 ] currently it is set to 191/360 which mean that there is 191 months having 30 days in a span of 360 years, other months are 29 days, and a is just a shift.

Intel MKL: Locale Files Used by All Shared Objects

IntelĀ® Math Kernel Library (IntelĀ® MKL) is a computing math library of highly optimized, extensively threaded routines for applications that require maximum performance. . This package ships the message catalog file for shared objects from MKL.


LDraw parts library

Collection of 3D LEGO parts, 3D part primitives and two example LEGO 3D models in LDraw format. This part library is needed by 3D CAD programs such as MLCAD, LeoCAD and Konstruktor which allow one to construct LEGO models from individual LDraw parts. It is also needed by rendering software such as LDView and LdGLite or instruction creation software like LPub4 or Lic.


LDraw mklist program

3D CAD programs and rendering programs using the LDraw parts library of LEGO parts rely on a file called parts.lst containing a list of all available parts. The program ldraw-mklist is used to generate this list from a directory of LDraw parts.

guest additions iso image for VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range of x86 operating systems such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a Linux system. . This package provides an iso image which contains the guest additions for Linux, Solaris and Windows to be installed on the host system. The guest systems then can mount the iso and install the guest additions from there.
