Appendix A - On the Caldera OpenLinux 2.4 CDROM

OpenLinux eDesktop 2.4 is the most recent distribution of Linux from Caldera as this book goes to production (or ... not, as it came down, see the Preface for details). We have included a copy for you on CD-ROM at the back of the book. It is identical to the downloadable product from the Caldera Website, and contains none of the commercial packages that are incorporated with the retail distribution.

For details about the commercial packages, and the various flavors of retail OpenLinux products, visit the online store at

Before installation, we recommend reading Chapter 2, which provides guidance for planning a Linux installation. If you'd rather just jump right in at the deep end, then Chapter 3 starts right in on the nuts and bolts of installing OpenLinux eDesktop 2.4, which includes all of the software packages listed in the pages that follow.

Package Group Descriptions

Like most Linux distributions, the software is packaged. This means that all of the files that work together to provide a specific function or sub-function are placed together in single files, and these files are extracted to the system at installation time. Altogether, there are 655 packages in the non-commercial version of eDesktop 2.4. These are mixed and matched in package groups to provide specific sets of functionality for the completely installed system. Let's look at the package groupings.

These brief group descriptions repeat the coverage that is in Chapter 2 of this book. They are here to provide a legend and context for Table B-1 that follows. They are introduced in the order they appear on the installer screen. Each package group is numbered to correspond with the notations in the third column of the table. For instance, line 4 of the table is shown below, and is included in all of the package groups.

Herein, we omit the Custom group, since it is a user selectable package list mode of installation. However, the following table may be useful in deciding which packages to include in a Custom install.

All Packages

Taking up 1310 M, this installs (surprise) all the packages on the non-commercial install CDROM. The package selection includes software development tools for many different languages, graphic manipulation software, text processing utilities, all server programs, and much more. This is also disparagingly called a "kitchen-sink install" by Linux aficionados who are in favor of installing the tools you use and no more. We see that point of view, and gently suggest that until a person knows what she wants to use, let the experimentation continue in the easiest possible manner. In the table below, all packages is not noted explicitly - rather obviously, all of the line items are included in the All Packages group.

M - Minimum Installation

This setup requires only 220 Mb of space, but has minimum functionality. This is an ideal core installation for setting up a server, or a space-constrained machine where adding packages/functionality is going to be a one-at-a-time process. You can also use this installation option to give yourself a working base operating system, then add packages and functionality a bit at a time.

R - Recommended

Recommended installs all of the basic requirements for workstation and server use. 750 M of hard disk space is required. The graphical user environment is installed (X Window system plus KDE), along with a variety of user and server packages.

B - Business Workstation

This 610 M package selection offers the KDE environment, business productivity software, and Internet connectivity tools. This is a good basic install for someone that doesn't want to do any software development.

D - Development Workstation

At 910 M of required space, Development Workstation installs most of the packages from Business Workstation, and adds the tools for editing and debugging software. Language development support includes C/C++, Fortran, Java, Perl, Python and Tcl/Tk.

H - Home Computer

This collection is a superset of Business workstation, including more games and "entertainment value" packages.

Autoconf creates a configuration script for a package from a template file that lists the operating system features that the package can use, in the form of m4 macro calls.
automake1.4DAutomake is a Makefile generator inspired by the 4.4BSD make and include files, but aims to be portable and to conform to the GNU standards for Makefile variables and targets.
bash1.14.7MRBDHThis is GNU Bash, the GNU Project's Bourne Again SHell, an interactive shell with Bourne shell syntax (/bin/sh); but also with interactive command line editing, job control on architectures that support it, Csh-like history features and brace expansion, and a slew of other stuff.
bash22.03DHThis is GNU Bash V.2, the GNU Project's Bourne Again SHell, an interactive shell with Bourne shell syntax (/bin/sh); but also with interactive command line editing, job control on architectures that support it, Csh-like history features and brace expansion, and a slew of other stuff. Please note, that OpenLinux still uses bash V.1 as default! This packages is supplied primarily for compatibility testing. (And your convenience, of course!)
bc1.05aMRBDHbc is a language that supports arbitrary precision numbers with interactive execution of statements. There are some similarities in the syntax to the C programming language. A standard math library is available by command line option. If requested, the math library is defined before processing any files. dc is a reverse-polish desk calculator which supports unlimited precision arithmetic. It also allows you to define and call macros.
bdflush1.6.2MRBDHThis program flushes the disk buffers the kernel keeps to prevent them from growing too stale.
biff+comsat0.10The comsat daemon included in this package is able to notify users of newly arrived mail by printing a message to their screen.

dhcp2.0b1pl29RDhcp implements the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and the Internet Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP). DHCP allows hosts on a TCP/IP network to request and be assigned IP addresses, and also to discover information about the network to which they are attached. BOOTP provides similar functionality, with certain restrictions.
dhcpcd1.3.17p4MRBDHdhcpcd implements a DHCP client for dynamically allocating IP addresses. It gets the host information (IP address, netmask, broadcast address, etc.) from a DHCP server and configures the network interface of the machine on which it is running.
diald0.16HExternal IP network connections that go over phone lines, either via SLIP or PPP on a serial modem, or via PPP on an ISDN line, are normally explicitly turned on or off by operator intervention. Diald can be used to automatically bring a link up when there are Internet packets to be sent to another site, and to close the link down when it is idle.
dialog0.6RBDHDialog is a utility that allows you to build user interfaces in a TTY (text mode only). You can call dialog from within a shell script to ask the user questions or present with choices in a more user friendly manner. See /usr/doc/dialog-*/samples for some examples.
dialscripts0.1RHThis package provides the modem scripts for the German internet provider T-Online. Please configure /etc/ppp/t-online.up and pap-secrets before starting. Author: Mihnea Istinie, Caldera Systems,
diffutils2.7.2MRDHThe diff utilities can be used to compare files, and generate a record of the "differences" between files. This record can be used by the patch program to bring one file up to date with the other. All these utilities (except cmp) only work on text files.
dip3.3.7oRDIP can be used to establish SLIP dialup connections. It provides a flexible scripting language for communicating with your modem, and setting up the required parameters for the SLIP network link. Note that dip also provides a dial-in mode, where it can be used as the login program for SLIP clients. However, a more flexible tool for this is provided by the sliplogin package.

dump0.4b4Rdump and restore, as known from BSD/SunOS/..., is a quite reliable method for backup, because 'dump' gets all needed information directly from the storage media -- not via the high-level filesystem-interface (as tar, cpio, etc. do). Additionally the output format of dump is readable on other platforms (like SunOS, BSD) and vice versa. But BEWARE, this software is still under development (BETA)!!! Don't rely too much it -- but without testing, there would be no further improvement! Interleave with another backup method would be a good idea.
dviutils1.0RHThese utilities re-arrange TeX DVI files, creating DVI files as output. Dvibook rearranges pages so that the file can be printed as a booklet on a duplex printer. Dvitodvi rearranges pages according to a complex page specification. It can be used to rearrange for booklet printing, extract odd or even pages, overlay pages, and many other functions.

It retrieves mail from remote mail servers and forwards it to your local (client) machine's delivery system, so it can then be be read by normal mail user agents such as elm(1) or Mail(1).
fhs2.0RDThe Filesystem Hierarchy Standard document specifies a standard filesystem structure for Linux systems, including the location of files and directories, and the contents of some system files.
file3.28MRDHThis package is useful for finding out what type of file you are looking at on your system. For example, if an fsck results in a file being stored in lost+found, you can run file on it to find out if it's safe to 'more' it or if it's a binary. It recognizes many file types, including ELF binaries, system libraries, RPM packages, and many different graphics formats.
fileutils4.0MRBDHThese are the GNU file management utilities. Most of these programs have significant advantages over their Unix counterparts, such as greater speed, additional options, and fewer arbitrary limits. The programs that come with this package are: chgrp, chown, chmod, cp, dd, df, du, install, ln, dir, vdir, ls, mkdir, mkfifo, mknod, mv, rm, rmdir, sync and touch.

gd-devel1.6.3DThis package contains the development libraries and header files for developing with gd.
gd-devel-static1.6.3This package contains the gd static development libraries.
gdb4.18RDThe purpose of a debugger such as GDB is to allow you to see what is going on `inside' another program while it executes -- or what another program was doing at the moment it crashed. GDB is a shell-based debugger. If you prefer a graphical interface, you might want to use the emacs-gdb-mode, xxgdb or ddd.
gdb-doc4.18DAdditional documentation for gdb in html and texinfo format with a reference card and the complete gdb Changelog.
gettext0.10.35RDThis is the GNU gettext package. It is interesting for authors or maintainers of other packages or programs which they want to see internationalized. As one step the handling of messages in different languages should be implemented. For this task GNU gettext provides the needed tools and library functions.

glib1.2.6MRBDHGlib is a handy library of utility functions. This C library is designed to solve some portability problems and provide other useful functionality which most programs require. Glib is used by GDK, GTK+ and many applications. You should install Glib because many of your applications will depend on this library.
glib-devel1.2.6DStatic libraries and header files for the support library for the GIMP's X libraries, which are available as public libraries. GLIB includes generally useful data structures.
glib-devel-static1.2.6Static library version of GLIB. Wherever you can use the dynamic version. This is just here for completeness.
glibc2.1.2MRBDHContains the standard libraries that are used by multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and memory, as well as to ease upgrades, common system code is kept in one place and shared between programs. This package contains the most important sets of shared libraries, the standard C library and the standard math library. Without these, a Linux system will not function.
glibc-devel2.1.2RDTo develop programs which use the standard C libraries (which nearly all programs do), the system needs to have these standard header files and object files available for creating the executables.
glibc-devel-static2.1.2DWhile most programs are distributed dynamically linked, and therefore need access to the standard shared libraries, some developers prefer to ship programs statically linked, which includes all of the standard library code in the executable. While this results in significantly larger programs and increases their memory usage, it does increase the portability of programs between Linux systems.
glibc-localedata2.1.2MRBDHLocale data for the internationalization features of the GNU libc.
gnuchess4.0.pl80RHGnuchess is an updated version of the GNU chess playing program. It has a simple alpha-numeric board display, an IBM PC compatible interface, or it can be compiled for use with the chesstool program on a SUN workstation or with the xboard program under X-windows.
gnupg1.0.1MRBDHGnupg, the GNU privacy guard, is a highly secure public key encryption program intended to replace by Phillip Zimmermann.
gnuplot3.7RDGnuplot was originally intended as graphical program which would allow scientists and students to visualize mathematical functions and data. Gnuplot supports many different types of terminals, plotters, and printers (including many color devices, and pseudo-devices like LaTeX) and is easily extensible to include new devices. Gnuplot handles both curves (2 dimensions) and surfaces (3 dimensions). Surfaces can be plotted as a mesh fitting the specified function, floating in the 3-d coordinate space, or as a contour plot on the x-y plane. For 2-d plots, there are also many plot styles, including lines, points, lines with points, error bars, and impulses (crude bar graphs). Graphs may be labeled with arbitrary labels and arrows, axes labels, a title, date and time, and a key.
gperf2.7.1Dgperf reads a set of `keys' from keyfile and attempts to find a non-minimal perfect hashing function that recognizes a member of the key set in constant, i.e., O(1), time. If such a function is found the program generates a pair of C source code routines that perform the hashing and table lookup.
gphoto0.4.2HgPhoto is part of the GNU project; it is an universal, free GTK+ application and library framework that lets you download images from several different digital camera models or from the local harddrive. It will also automatically generate HTML albums suitable for web pages.
gpm1.17.8MRBDHThe gpm (general purpose mouse) daemon tries to be a useful mouse server for applications running on the Linux console. Its roots are in the "selection" package, by Andrew Haylett, and the original code comes from selection itself. This package is intended as a replacement for "selection", to provide additional facilities.
gpm-devel1.17.8DDynamic development libraries and header files for GPM mouse support.
gpm-devel-static1.17.8The static GPM mouse support library.
grep2.4MRBDHThe GNU family of grep utilities may be the "fastest grep in the west". GNU grep is based on a fast lazy-state deterministic matcher (about twice as fast as stock Unix egrep) hybridized with a Boyer-Moore-Gosper search for a fixed string that eliminates impossible text from being considered by the full regexp matcher without necessarily having to look at every character.

Utilizing DAV requires both a DAV-aware client and server. mod_dav provides complete class 1 and 2 DAV services to DAV clients via the Apache webserver (1.3.4 or later). The number of DAV-aware clients is growing and includes the 'Web Folders' used in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 and Office 2000.
mod_perl1.21Mod_perl incorporates a Perl interpreter into the Apache web server, so that the Apache web server can directly execute Perl code. Mod_perl links the Perl runtime library into the Apache web server and provides an object-oriented Perl interface for Apache's C language API. The end result is a quicker CGI script turnaround process, since no external Perl interpreter has to be started. Install mod_perl if you're installing the Apache web server and you'd like for it to directly incorporate a Perl interpreter.
mod_php33.0.14PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor Version 3.0 is an HTML-embedded scripting language.

mpg1230.59qRHThe mpg123 MPEG (1.0/2.0) audio player with layer 1,2 and 3 support reads one or more files (or standard input if `-' is specified) and plays them on the audio device (default) or outputs them to stdout. In addition to reading MPEG audio streams from ordinary files and from the standard input, mpg123 supports retrieval of MPEG audio files via the HTTP protocol, Such files are specified using a URL, which starts with ``http://''. When a file with that prefix is encountered, mpg123 attempts to open an HTTP connection to the server in order to retrieve that file to decode and play it. MPEG audio decoding requires a good deal of CPU performance, especially layer-3. To decode it in realtime, you should have at least a Pentium processor. You can also use the -singlemix option to decode mono only, which reduces the CPU load somewhat for layer-3 streams.
mt-st0.4RThe mt program can be used to perform many operations on tapes, including rewind, eject, skipping files and blocks, changing blocksize etc.

mysql3.22.32MySQL is a true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. SQL is the most popular database language in the world. MySQL is a client/server implementation that consists of a server daemon mysqld and many different client programs/libraries. The main goals of MySQL are speed, robustness and easy to use. MySQL was originally developed because we at Tcx needed a SQL server that could handle very big databases with magnitude higher speed than what any database vendor could offer to us. We have now been using MySQL since 1996 in a environment with more than 40 databases, 10,000 tables, of which more than 500 have more than 7 million rows. This is about 50G of mission critical data. The base upon which MySQL is built is a set of routines that have been used in a highly demanding production environment for many years. While MySQL is still in development, it already offers a rich and highly useful function set.

readline-devel-static4.0This is the package containing the static libaries for the rare(?) case of statically linking programs to the readline libary.
recode3.5RDGNU `recode' converts files between character sets and usages. When exact transliterations are not possible, it may get rid of the offending characters or fall back on approximations. This program recognizes or produces nearly 150 different character sets and is able to transliterate files between almost any pair. Most RFC 1345 character sets are supported.
rh-compat2.4MRBDHA collection of compatibility tools, files and symlinks to make vendors of commercial applications happy. Those are often build on RH-6.0 or later which has a really strange naming sceme for some libraries.
rhmask1.0Rrhmask is intended to allow the distribution of files as masks against other files. This lets new versions of software be freely distributed on public internet servers but limits their usefulness to those who already have a copy of the package. It uses a simple XOR scheme for creating the file mask and uses file size and md5 sums to ensure the integrity of the result.

rstatd-devel3.03DThis packages contains header and object files needed to build applications, that take advantage of rstatd.
rsync2.3.1RDrsync uses the "rsync algorithm" which provides a very fast method for bringing remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand. At first glance this may seem impossible because the calculation of diffs between two files normally requires local access to both files. A technical report describing the rsync algorithm is included with this package.
rvplayer5.0RBDHThe Ultimate Entertainment Center which plays all RealAudio and RealVideo on the Internet
samba2.0.6RBSamba provides an SMB server which can be used to provide network services to SMB (sometimes called "Lan Manager") clients, including various versions of MS Windows, OS/2, and other Linux machines. Samba also provides some SMB clients, which complement the built-in SMB filesystem in Linux. Samba uses NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) protocols and does NOT need NetBEUI (Microsoft Raw NetBIOS frame) protocol. Samba-2 features an almost working NT Domain Control capability and includes the new SWAT (Samba Web Administration Tool) that allows samba's smb.conf file to be remotely managed using your favourite web browser. For the time being this may be enabled on TCP port 901 via inetd. Please refer to the WHATSNEW.txt document for fixup information. This binary release includes encrypted password support. Please read the smb.conf file and ENCRYPTION.txt in the docs directory for implementation details. NOTE: Caldera OpenLinux uses PAM which has integrated support for Shadow passwords. Do NOT recompile with the SHADOW_PWD option enabled. Caldera OpenLinux has(?) built-in support for quotas in PAM.

This release understands "raw" files in various binary formats, raw textual data, Microsoft Windows .WAV files, MAUD files, Sound Blaster .VOC files, IRCAM SoundFile files, SUN Sparcstation .au files, mutant DEC .au files, Apple/SGI AIFF files, CD-R (music CD format), Macintosh HCOM files, Sounder files, NeXT .snd files, SUN ADPCM (compressed) .au files, Soundtool (DOS) files, and Psion (palmtop) A-law files. The sound effects include changing the sample rate, adding echo delay lines, applying low-, high, and band-pass filtering, examining sample loops and grabbing the looped parts, xlating between stereo and monophonic channels nicely, reversing a sample in order to search for Satanic messages, adding masking noise to avoid buzzing voices, and the infamous Fender Vibro effect.
sox-devel12.16libst Sound Tools sound sample file and effects libraries. Sound_Tools is a library of sound sample file format readers/writers and sound effects processors. Sound Tools includes skeleton C files to assist you in writing new formats and effects. The full skeleton driver, skel.c, helps you write drivers for a new format which has data structures. The simple skeleton drivers help you write a new driver for raw (headerless) formats, or for formats which just have a simple header followed by raw data.
strace4.1RDH'strace' is a useful diagnositic, instructional, and debugging tool. System adminstrators, diagnosticians and trouble-shooters will find it invaluable for solving problems with programs for which the source is not readily available since they do not need to be recompiled in order to trace them. Students, hackers and the overly-curious will find that a great deal can be learned about a system and its system calls by tracing even ordinary programs. And programmers will find that since system calls and signals are events that happen at the user/kernel interface, a close examination of this boundary is very useful for bug isolation, sanity checking and attempting to capture race conditions.
svgalib1.4.0RDHSVGAlib is a library which allows applications to use full screen graphics on a variety of hardware platforms. Many games and utilities are available which take advantage of SVGAlib for graphics access, as it is more suitable for machines with little memory than the X Window System.

SysVinit2.76.3MRBDHSystem V compatible 'init' program. The parent of all processes... Its primary role is to create processes from a script stored in the file '/etc/inittab' (see inittab(5)). This file usually has entries which cause 'init' to spawn 'getty's on each line that users can log in. It also controls autonomous processes required by any particular system. Also contained are equally vital programs closely related to 'init', like 'shutdown(8)' or 'sulogin(8)' and others needed mostly by 'SysVinit-scripts' (the vital configuration part to this package).
SysVinit-scripts1.05MRBDHThis package contains the scripts use to boot a system, change run levels, and shut the system down cleanly. It also contains the scripts that activate and deactivate most network interfaces.
tar1.13MRBDHThe Tape Archiver (tar) is the preferred tool for UNIX archiving, that is wrapping up whole sets of file trees into a single file or tape (hence the name), eventually compressed. You can recognize those archives by their ".tar.gz", ".tar.Z" or ".tgz" suffix (extension). For (de-)compression gzip is required. The tar program provides the ability to create tar archives, as well as various other kinds of manipulation. For example, you can use tar on previously created archives to extract files, to store additional files, or to update or list files which were already stored. Initially, tar archives were used to store files conveniently on magnetic tape. The name `tar' comes from this use; it stands for tape archiver. Despite the utility's name, tar can direct its output to available devices, files, or other programs (using pipes). tar may even access remote devices or files (as archives).
tcl8.0.4RDHTCL is a simple scripting language that is designed to be embedded in other applications. This package includes tclsh, a simple example of a tcl application. TCL is very popular for writing small graphical applications because of the TK widget set which is closely tied to it.

Xbae4.7RBDHLibrary that supplies Motif widgets `XbaeMatrix' and `XbaeCaption' What the widgets do: -------------------- XbaeMatrix: XbaeMatrix is a Motif widget which presents an editable array of string data to the user in a scrollable table similar to a spreadsheet. The rows and columns of the Matrix may optionally be labeled. Also, a number of "fixed" rows or columns may be specified - these behave similarly to the labels. While XbaeMatrix looks and acts like a grid oF XmTextField widgets, it actually contains only one XmTextField. This means that XbaeMatrix widgets with hundreds or thousands of rows have much less overhead than they would if they used an XmTextField for each cell. XbaeMatrix has callbacks for doing field validation and customizing traversal. It allows cells to be assigned independent colors. It allows rows, columns and regions of cells to be selected or highlighted. The matrix can be dynamically grown or shrunk by adding and deleting rows and columns at any position. The widget has many resources to allow individual customisation and can be made to look and behave like an extended list widget with added functionality. Pixmaps (both colour xpm and standard bitmaps) can be displayed in individual cells with the callbacks available in the widget. XbaeCaption: XbaeCaption is a simple Motif manager widget used to associate an XmLabel (caption) with it's single child. The label may be either an XmString or Pixmap and can be displayed in any one of twelve positions around the perimeter of the child. XbaeCaption's geometry management technique is to simply "shrink wrap" it's child and display the caption alongside it. By using XbaeCaption with an XmFrame child, groups of related widgets can be labeled similarly to the IBM CUA "Group Box", but with more flexibility. XbaeCaption is also useful for associating labels with individual XmTextField widgets.

xcdroast0.96exRHX-CD-Roast is a full X based CD-Writer-Program, and it is the successor of the cdwtools-0.93. It is a frontend for some CD related programs like cdwrite-2.1 and mkisofs-1.11. With some simple mouse-clicks you can copy or create your own CDs, without long study of any commandline-parameters. You can start xcdroast in paranoia mode as well (easy access via xcdroast_paranoia). It will then require you once to check a sample config file for cdparanoia before being able to use xcdroast in this mode. The advantage is, that in cdparanoia mode lot's of ATAPI and other CD drives are supported as an audio read device. Note, that for drives capable of reading/writing in higher speeds than offered in the menus you should leave the option set to 'default' to take advantage of the full speed.

XFree86-xsm3.3.6MRBDHThe xsm session manager for X11R6. A session is a group of applications, each of which has a particular state. xsm allows you to create arbitrary sessions - for example, you might have a 'light' session, a 'development' session, or an 'xterminal' session. Each session can have its own set of applications. Within a session, you can perform a 'checkpoint' to save application state, or a 'shutdown' to save state and exit the session. When you log back in to the system, you can load a specific session, and you can delete sessions you no longer want to keep.
XFree86-xterm3.3.6MRBDHThe xterm program is a terminal emulator for the X Window System. It provides DEC VT102 and Tektronix 4014 compatible terminals for programs that can't use the window system directly.

xmms-devel1.0.0DStatic libraries and header files required for compiling xmms plugins.
xpdf0.90RBDHXpdf is a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files. (These are also sometimes also called 'Acrobat' files, from the name of Adobe's PDF software.) Xpdf runs under the X Window System on UNIX, VMS, and OS/2. Xpdf is designed to be small and efficient. It does not use the Motif or Xt libraries. It uses standard X fonts. Xpdf is quite usable on a 486-66 PC running Linux.
xpm4.11MRBDHXPM (X PixMap) is a format for storing/retrieving X pixmaps to/from files. Here is provided a library containing a set of four functions, similar to the X bitmap functions as defined in the Xlib: XpmCreatePixmapFromData, XpmCreateDataFromPixmap, XpmReadFileToPixmap and XpmWriteFileFromPixmap for respectively including, storing, reading and writing this format, plus four other: XpmCreateImageFromData, XpmCreateDataFromImage, XpmReadFileToImage and XpmWriteFileFromImage for working with images instead of pixmaps. This new version provides a C includable format, defaults for different types of display: monochrome/color/grayscale, hotspot coordinates and symbol names for colors for overriding default colors when creating the pixmap. It provides a mechanism for storing information while reading a file which is re-used while writing. This way comments, default colors and symbol names aren't lost. It also handles "transparent pixels" by returning a shape mask in addition to the created pixmap.
xpm-devel4.11DHeader files and documentation to develope programs that use the X Pixmap library.
xpm-devel-static4.11Static library to develope programs that use the X Pixmap library.

xswallow1.0.17RBDHX Swallow is a plugin cobbled together to allow any X program to be used as an inline viewer for any appropiate MIME type. So a MIME type (e.g. x-world/x-vrml) for which there does not exist, as of the moment, a plug-in for Linux Netscape can be viewed inline with ordinary VRML viewers such as VRweb/Liquid Reality. Also, it has all the abilities of mimeplugin by Carl Shimer & Michael J. Long, on which Xswallow is based, and can be therefore be used to handle MIME types that are handled by programs with no graphical interface, audio formats for the most part. This RPM is configured to use acroread for PDFs and gv for Postscript Documents. Edit /opt/netscape/communicator/xswallow.conf to change.
xterm-color2.0RHThis is just a set of symlinks to help ancient scripts which used some replacement for the standard xterm. Now the xterm which came out of XFree86 has got much better. This includes ansi-xterm, color-xterm, xterm-color The version number is just a hint to rpm that would otherwise not replace version 1.1 (the actual).
xtoolwait1.2RXtoolwait starts an X client and waits for it to map a window. Xtoolwait notably decreases the startup time of an X session by reducing the load on the X server and the OS. Xtoolwait starts the X client command in the background. It then waits until a window is mapped on the root window and exits. Xtoolwait also exits if a time-out occurs (by default after 15 seconds), or if command exits.
xv3.10aRBDHThe xv program displays images in the GIF, JPEG, TIFF, PBM, PGM, PPM, X11 bitmap, Utah Raster Toolkit RLE, PDS/VICAR, Sun Rasterfile, BMP, PCX, IRIS RGB, XPM, Targa, XWD, possibly PostScript, and PM formats on workstations and terminals running the X Window System.
