The i810 console framebuffer driver supporting 16-bit color (65k colors) works as an effective framebuffer which is similar to the VESAFB console. It has been tested with LPP (the Linux Progress Patch), but you must apply the LPP patch to the kernel before applying the patch for this driver. There is an easy install script install-fb available now.
wavemon is a ncurses-based monitor for wireless devices. It allows you to watch the signal and noise levels, packet statistics, device configuration, and network parameters of your wireless network hardware. It has currently only been tested with the Lucent Orinoco series of cards, although it should work (with varying features) with all devices supported by the wireless kernel extensions written by Jean Tourrilhes.
rioutil is a utility designed for the use of interfacing with Sonic Blue/dnna's third, fourth, and fifth generations of flash MP3 players (Rio 600/800/900/S-Series/Riot/Cali/Chiba/Fuse and Nike psa[play). On many players, it goes beyond the packaged software by providing downloading.
cdstatus checks for drive errors, outputs disc information (such as type and table of contents), and is capable of ripping full CDs, using configurable track ranges and retry counts. It handles cddb lookups and makes use of per-user .cdstatus configuration files. It usually produces identical output to cdparanoia with much faster execution. It features direct-to-lame MP3 encoding and Ogg Vorbis encoding, as well as twolame support.
GtkGamma is a simple program that allows the user of an XFree86 station to easily alter his/her monitor's gamma correction. If a monitor's gamma curves haven't been tuned, colors half in the range from black to maximum tint (either red, green, blue, or white) tend to look different from a uniform pattern, formed by an equal number of black and maximum tinted pixels, although it should look exactly the same. GtkGamma provides a simple GUI that gives the user the feedback needed to correct these curves.
3M Touch Systems USB TouchScreen Driver is a package containing a kernel module which supports a USB touchscreen device made by 3M Touch Systems (formerly known as MicroTouch Systems Inc.). This touchscreen is also known as IBM SurePoint, and it is used for instance in IBM SurePOS 750. This kernel module is a pre version, and still requires a lot of improvements, but it works well. If anyone is interested in further development, we can move the sources to SourceForge.net. The driver was tested on kernel 2.3.99-pre9, and XFree-3.3.6-20.
