Packages for SuSE Linux 9.2                       Compiled by Volker Kuhlmann

If you would like me to create other packages for you, I will be more than happy
to do so. Please contact me for a quote.

* bibclean
  Pretty printer and syntax checker for BibTeX files.

* bibtool
  Manages bibliographic data bases in BibTeX format. Good pretty-printer and
  syntax checker.

* bibutils
  Conversion tools to convert different bibliography formats through a common
  XML (MODS) intermediate format. 

* cdrecord-dvdhack
* cdrecord-ossdvd
  Use dvd+rw-tools instead, it's shipped by SuSE.

* cowsay/cowthink  (view this with a fixed-width / monospaced / courier font)
  / Say it with the cow! The one gimmick you have to have... \
  \ Other speaking/thinking things available too.            /
          \   ^__^
           \  (oo)\_______

                  ||----w |
                  ||     ||

* dares
  DAta REScue. Rescue files from damaged ISO-9660 or UDF filesystems. Not so
  useful by itself, the program it goes with (h2cdimage) isn't available for

* dosemu
  Packages of the latest development version of dosemu.

* dvd+rw-tools
  Updated to version 6.1.

* dvdisaster
  Creates error detection/correction codes for DVD images, and can apply them
  when the DVD becomes faulty. Also reads defective DVDs to hard disk as far as
  possible. Version 0.63 adopts the strategy for reading defective disks
  described in c't-Magazin 16/2005 (and implemented in their not-for-Linux
  h2cdimage program, if the description is correct).

* fdupes
  Finds (and optionally deletes) identical files in directories, even if they
  have different names.

* flpsed
  Interactively place text over an existing postscript or pdf file - very good
  for filling in these pdf forms!

* gv
  The version which can transparently decompress bzip2 files is now shipped by

* html2text
  A current version is now shipped by SuSE.

* ImageMagick3
  This version of ImageMagick is made for makeimage, a tool for archiving and
  editing photos. Makeimage is now distributed separately (package scriptutils).
  To date, none of the available versions 4.x and 5.x of ImageMagick actually
  work correctly in all areas used by makeimage (and not many functions are
  used), newer IM versions are also noticably slower. This old version of
  ImageMagick has no bugs in those functions used by makeimage.
  To avoid collisions with other installed IM packages, the installation
  location for this package can be changed with rpm --prefix, default is
  /usr/local/X11R6. The IM3 wrapper will change the paths accordingly, so
  'IM3 convert' will call the convert of this package.

* iraf
  An image processing program, primarily for astronomy.
  Install the packages from SuSE 8.2.

* midas
  ESO-MIDAS is the European Southern Observatory - Munich Image Data Analysis
  System, developed and maintained by the European Southern Observatory. MIDAS
  provides general tools for image processing and data reduction with emphasis
  on astronomical applications.
  Install the packages from SuSE 8.2.

* msttcorefonts
  This is now integrated into yast; start the yast online update and install the
  "download Microsoft truetype core fonts".
  Also, SuSE now has a nifty font installation facility - copy all the X11 font
  files into some directory (e.g. under /usr/local) and place a symlink to
  it under /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/, then run SuSEconfig --module fonts.

* mutt
  Identical to SuSE's shipped version, except for
  1) A time stamp on mail files is updated when the file was modified by mutt.
  2) When a mail file is modified, chmod o-x is performed on the file, this
     works in with using a umask of 076 with procmail.

* nedit 5.5
  A very good graphical editor.  (
  The contrib area from is also included in these packages.

* openmotif21-libs
  Required for nedit. The version shipped with SuSE 9.2 is too buggy for nedit.

* par
  A paragraph formatter similar to fmt, but much more powerful.

* pdfbook
  Rearrange PDF files for booklet printing, or for printing multiple pages per

* pdftk  (
  The pdf tool kit.
  Concatenation, splitting, and manipulation of pdf files. Very useful.

* png2pdf
  Converts PNG images to PDF. Useful for pdflatex.

* proxytunnel

* pstotext
  Converts PostScript or PDF to plain text. This program sometimes works in
  cases where ps2ascii fails.

* scriptutils
  This collection of shell scripts helps with everyday tasks, often reducing
  the amount of typing otherwise required when using the standard utilities.
  Included are scripts for finding files, comparing directory trees, generating
  checksums, mastering and writing CDs, downloading URLs listed in special
  files via cron, and a few others.

* shorten
  Shorten is an audio compression program. It is similar to gzip, but
  works much better on sound files. Compression rates are very good for
  lossless compression, and even better for lossy operation. It handles
  a variety of file formats.

* smartmontools
  Controls and monitors storage devices using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and
  Reporting Technology System (S.M.A.R.T.) built into ATA and SCSI Hard Drives.
  SuSE ships a reasonably current version.

* spinner
  Spinner is an anti-idle program that transfers a few characters over a link in
  a set time interval. Prevents the link from being cut due to inactivity.

* susegrep, susegrep-data9.2
  A searchable index of the SuSE distribution media. Lists package descriptions,
  file lists etc. The package susegrep contains the program, but use
  scriptutils in preference. susegrep-data9.2 contains the index for 9.2. You
  may also install any of the susegrep-dataX.Y packages from previous SuSE
  versions in parallel.

* transfig
  see -> xfig / transfig

* wav2cdr
  Install the packages from SuSE 8.2.

* wipe
  A current version is now shipped by SuSE.

* WordNet
  Install the packages from SuSE 8.2.

* workman
  A CD-player program based on xview. This one is recompiled from the SuSE 9.1
  sources. It requires the lucida screen fonts in ISO8859 encoding,
  which are missing from SuSE's xorg packages.
  Install from SuSE 9.1 (and run SuSEconfig):
     From packages XFree86-fonts-{75,100}dpi
     the files /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/*/lu*-ISO8859*

* xfig / transfig 3.2.5alpha5
  Current alpha versions which have new features and work reasonably well.
  These packages are optimised for SuSE. All appliccable patches which SuSE
  applied to 3.2.4 are applied to this alpha version too. The binaries from are for Red Hat and don't run on SuSE 9.1 because
  of differences in libraries at binary level.
  Install the xfig for SuSE 9.2, and the transfig for SuSE 9.1.

* other/providers-NZ.conf
  Not a package, but copying this file to /usr/share/providers/NZ.conf makes a
  bunch of common New Zealand ISPs available in yast when configuring a modem.

* other/slmodem.diff
  A patch to make the smartlink-softmodem driver work on some laptops, including
  Acer Aspire 1703.
* other/sysconffiles-XXX.tar.bz2
  A basic set of additional shell configuration files, and some patches for a
  number of programs.
