convmv can convert a single filename, a directory tree or all files on a filesystem to a different encoding. It only converts the encoding of filenames, not files contents. A special feature of convmv is that it also takes care of symlinks: the encoding of the symlink's target will be converted if the symlink itself is being converted.

It is also possible to convert directories to UTF-8 which are already partially UTF-8 encoded.

deborphan finds "orphaned" packages on your system. It determines which packages have no other packages depending on their installation and shows you a list of these packages. It is most useful when finding libraries, but it can be used on packages in all sections.

This package also includes orphaner, a text menu frontend to deborphan. Please install the recommended packages dialog, gettext-base and apt when you want a working and fully featured orphaner.

Dmidecode reports information about the system's hardware as described in the system BIOS according to the SMBIOS/DMI standard.

This information typically includes system manufacturer, model name, serial number, BIOS version, asset tag as well as a lot of other details of varying level of interest and reliability depending on the manufacturer. This will often include usage status for the CPU sockets, expansion slots (e.g. AGP, PCI, ISA) and memory module slots, and the list of I/O ports (e.g. serial, parallel, USB).

Beware that DMI data have proven to be too unreliable to be blindly trusted. Dmidecode does not scan the hardware, it only reports what the BIOS told it to.

WOL (Wake-on-LAN) is a standard that allows you to turn on a computer over an Ethernet connection. Computers with WOL-enabled network interface cards can be woken from sleep mode, or powered up from standby via a BIOS feature.

One feature that separates etherwake from other implementations is that it also supports WOL passwords.

fping is a ping like program which uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request to determine if a target host is responding. fping differs from ping in that you can specify any number of targets on the command line, or specify a file containing the lists of targets to ping. Instead of sending to one target until it times out or replies, fping will send out a ping packet and move on to the next target in a round-robin fashion.

hwinfo is the hardware detection tool used in SuSE Linux.

In Debian Edu (Skolelinux) hwinfo has shown better results than discover when detecting mouse, keyboard and monitor.

hwinfo collects information about the hardware installed on a system. Among others, libhd contains information about cdrom, zip, floppy, disks and partitions, network card, graphics card, monitor, camera, mouse, sound, pppoe, isdn, modem, printer, scanner, bios, cpu, usb, memory and smp.

This package does not include the binaries hwscan, hwscand and hwscanqueue. If you think one or more of these should be included in the package, please contact the maintainer at hwinfo@packages.debian.org.

iotop does for I/O usage what top(1) does for CPU usage. It watches I/O usage information output by the Linux kernel and displays a table of current I/O usage by processes on the system. It is handy for answering the question "Why is the disk churning so much?".

iotop can only run under a Linux 2.6.20 or later kernel built with the CONFIG_TASKSTATS, CONFIG_TASK_DELAY_ACCT, CONFIG_TASK_IO_ACCOUNTING and CONFIG_VM_EVENT_COUNTERS build config options on.

This package provides "less", a file pager (that is, a memory-efficient utility for displaying text one screenful at a time). Less has many more features than the basic pager "more". As part of the GNU project, it is widely regarded as the standard pager on UNIX-derived systems.

Also provided are "lessecho", a simple utility for ensuring arguments with spaces are correctly quoted; "lesskey", a tool for modifying the standard (vi-like) keybindings; and "lesspipe", a filter for specific types of input, such as .doc or .txt.gz files.

This package contains a plugin for the Name Service Switch, providing host name resolution for the locally configured system hostname as returned by gethostname(2). It returns all locally configured public IP addresses or -- if none are configured, the IPv4 address 127.0.1.1 (which is on the local loopback) and the IPv6 address ::1 (which is the local host).

A lot of software relies on that the local host name is resolvable. This package provides an alternative to the fragile and error-prone manual editing of /etc/hosts.

Installing this package automatically adds myhostname to /etc/nsswitch.conf.

Many programs use $TMPDIR for storing temporary files. Not all of them are good at securing the permissions of those files. libpam-tmpdir sets $TMPDIR and $TMP for PAM sessions and sets the permissions quite tight. This helps system security by having an extra layer of security, making such symlink attacks and other /tmp based attacks harder or impossible

Memtest86+ scans your RAM for errors.

This tester runs independently of any OS - it is run at computer boot-up, so that it can test all of your memory. You may want to look at `memtester', which allows to test your memory within Linux, but this one won't be able to test your whole RAM.

It can output a list of bad RAM regions usable by the BadRAM kernel patch, so that you can still use your old RAM with one or two bad bits.

Memtest86+ is based on memtest86 3.0, and adds support for recent hardware, as well as a number of general-purpose improvements, including many patches to memtest86 available from various sources.

Both memtest86 and memtest86+ are being worked on in parallel.

mlocate is a new implementation of locate, a tool to find files anywhere in the filesystem based on their name, using a fixed pattern or a regular expression. Unlike other tools like find(1), locate uses a previously created database to perform the search, allowing queries to execute much faster. This database is updated periodically from cron.

Several implementations of locate exist: the original implementation from GNU's findutils, slocate, and mlocate. The advantages of mlocate are:

  • it indexes all the filesystem, but results of a search will only include files that the user running locate has access to. It does this by updating the database as root, but making it unreadable for normal users, who can only access it via the locate binary. slocate does this as well, but not the original locate.

  • instead of re-reading all the contents of all directories each time the database is updated, mlocate keeps timestamp information in its database and can know if the contents of a directory changed without reading them again. This makes updates much faster and less demanding on the hard drive. This feature is only found in mlocate.

Installing mlocate will change the /usr/bin/locate binary to point to mlocate via the alternatives mechanism. After installation, you may wish to run /etc/cron.daily/mlocate by hand to create the database, otherwise mlocate won't work until that script is run from cron itself (since mlocate does not use the same database file as standard locate). Also, you may wish to remove the "locate" package in order not to have two different database files updated regularly on your system.

mtr combines the functionality of the 'traceroute' and 'ping' programs in a single network diagnostic tool.

As mtr starts, it investigates the network connection between the host mtr runs on and a user-specified destination host. After it determines the address of each network hop between the machines, it sends a sequence of ICMP ECHO requests to each one to determine the quality of the link to each machine. As it does this, it prints running statistics about each machine.

Nmap is a utility for network exploration or security auditing. It supports ping scanning (determine which hosts are up), many port scanning techniques, version detection (determine service protocols and application versions listening behind ports), and TCP/IP fingerprinting (remote host OS or device identification). Nmap also offers flexible target and port specification, decoy/stealth scanning, sunRPC scanning, and more. Most Unix and Windows platforms are supported in both GUI and commandline modes. Several popular handheld devices are also supported, including the Sharp Zaurus and the iPAQ.

The inetd server is a network daemon program that specializes in managing incoming network connections. Its configuration file tells it what program needs to be run when an incoming connection is received. Any service port may be configured for either of the tcp or udp protocols.

This is a port of the OpenBSD daemon with some debian-specific features. This package supports IPv6, built-in libwrap access control, binding to specific addresses, UNIX domain sockets and socket buffers tuning.

Resolvconf is a framework for keeping up to date the system's information about name servers. It sets itself up as the intermediary between programs that supply this information (such as ifup and ifdown, DHCP clients, the PPP daemon and local name servers) and programs that use this information (such as DNS caches and resolver libraries).

This package may require some manual configuration. Please read the README file for detailed instructions.

rsync is a fast and versatile file-copying tool which can copy locally and to/from a remote host. It offers many options to control its behavior, and its remote-update protocol can minimize network traffic to make transferring updates between machines fast and efficient.

It is widely used for backups and mirroring and as an improved copy command for everyday use.

This package provides both the rsync command line tool and optional daemon functionality.

Rsyslog is a multi-threaded implementation of syslogd (a system utility providing support for message logging), with features that include:

  • reliable syslog over TCP, SSL/TLS and RELP
  • on-demand disk buffering
  • email alerting
  • writing to MySQL or PostgreSQL databases (via separate output plugins)
  • permitted sender lists
  • filtering on any part of the syslog message
  • on-the-wire message compression
  • fine-grained output format control
  • failover to backup destinations
  • enterprise-class encrypted syslog relaying

It is the default syslogd on Debian systems.

strace is a system call tracer, i.e. a debugging tool which prints out a trace of all the system calls made by a another process/program. The program to be traced need not be recompiled for this, so you can use it on binaries for which you don't have source.

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.

Sysfs is a virtual file system in Linux kernel 2.5+ that provides a tree of system devices. This package provides the program 'systool' to query it: it can list devices by bus, class, and topology.

In addition this package ships a configuration file /etc/sysfs.conf which allows one to conveniently set sysfs attributes at system bootup (in the init script /etc/init.d/sysfsutils).

If you need sysfs queries in own programs, then you may want to use the libsysfs library directly (package libsysfs-dev).

This program allows you to dump the traffic on a network. tcpdump is able to examine IPv4, ICMPv4, IPv6, ICMPv6, UDP, TCP, SNMP, AFS BGP, RIP, PIM, DVMRP, IGMP, SMB, OSPF, NFS and many other packet types.

It can be used to print out the headers of packets on a network interface, filter packets that match a certain expression. You can use this tool to track down network problems, to detect attacks or to monitor network activities.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: pcapfix

The more traditional traceroute(8) sends out either UDP or ICMP ECHO packets with a TTL of one, and increments the TTL until the destination has been reached. By printing the gateways that generate ICMP time exceeded messages along the way, it is able to determine the path packets are taking to reach the destination.

The problem is that with the widespread use of firewalls on the modern Internet, many of the packets that traceroute(8) sends out end up being filtered, making it impossible to completely trace the path to the destination. However, in many cases, these firewalls will permit inbound TCP packets to specific ports that hosts sitting behind the firewall are listening for connections on. By sending out TCP SYN packets instead of UDP or ICMP ECHO packets, tcptraceroute is able to bypass the most common firewall filters.

Vim is an almost compatible version of the UNIX editor Vi.

Many new features have been added: multi level undo, syntax highlighting, command line history, on-line help, filename completion, block operations, folding, Unicode support, etc.

This package contains a version of vim compiled with a rather standard set of features. This package does not provide a GUI version of Vim. See the other vim-* packages if you need more (or less).

The package is enhanced by the following packages: halibut notmuch tpp vim-latexsuite vim-scripts

cpqarrayd is a userspace monitoring daemon for HP (Compaq) SmartArray hardware RAID controllers. These controllers usually come built-in to ProLiant, or as a PCI card for ProLiant or Integrity systems. This daemon reports status changes in the disk array to syslog and, optionally, to a snmp trap host.

The default is to only log to the syslog. You can specify traphosts with the -t parameter at the commandline. Multiple traphosts are allowed.

This tool works with the SmartArray drivers found in Linux kernels (cciss and ida drivers).

Contains a tool that is run by a cron job at regular intervals. By default it just updates the package list and downloads new packages without installing. You can instruct it to run anything that you can do with apt-get (or aptitude).

It can optionally send mail to the system administrator on errors, log to syslog or a separate log file.

Observe that this tool may be a security risk, so you should not set it to do more than necessary. Automatic upgrade of all packages is NOT recommended unless you are in full control of the package repository.

These programs are designed to integrate with standard shell tools, extending them to operate on the Debian packaging system.

 dglob  - Generate a list of package names which match a pattern
          [dctrl-tools, apt*, apt-file*, perl*]
 dgrep  - Search all files in specified packages for a regex
          [dctrl-tools, apt-file (both via dglob)]

These are also included, because they are useful and don't justify their own packages:

 check-enhancements
            - find packages which enhance installed packages [apt,
               dctrl-tools]
 checkrestart
            - Help to find and restart processes which are using old versions
              of upgraded files (such as libraries) [python3, procps, lsof*]
 debget     - Fetch a .deb for a package in APT's database [apt]
 debman     - Easily view man pages from a binary .deb without extracting
              [man, apt* (via debget)]
 debmany    - Select manpages of installed or uninstalled packages [man |
              sensible-utils, whiptail | dialog | zenity, apt*, konqueror*,
              libgnome2-bin*, xdg-utils*]
 dhomepage  - Open homepage of a package in a web browser [dctrl-tools,
              sensible-utils*, www-browser* | x-www-browser*]
 dman       - Fetch manpages from online manpages.debian.org service [curl,
              man, lsb-release*]
 dpigs      - Show which installed packages occupy the most space
              [dctrl-tools]
 find-dbgsym-packages
            - Get list of dbgsym packages from core dump or PID [dctrl-tools,
              elfutils, libfile-which-perl, libipc-system-simple-perl]
 popbugs    - Display a customized release-critical bug list based on
              packages you use (using popularity-contest data) [python3,
              popularity-contest]
 which-pkg-broke
            - find which package might have broken another [python3, apt]
 which-pkg-broke-build
            - find which package might have broken the build of another
              [python3 (via which-pkg-broke), apt]

Package name in brackets denote (non-essential) dependencies of the scripts. Packages names with an asterisk ("*") denote optional dependencies, all other are hard dependencies.

Hard dependencies of single tools are listed in the Recommends field of the package and optional dependencies of single tools in the Suggests field -- as common with many "collection" style Debian packages.

nvram-wakeup can read and write the wake up time in the BIOS (via /dev/nvram on recent 2.4.x kernels or direct I/O port access). On this wake up time the computer will be powered on automatically from the soft-off state. For the video disc recorder VDR, nvram-wakeup installs a hook script, that allows VDR to set a wake up time, when it powers down.

Valgrind is a system for debugging and profiling Linux programs. With its tool suite you can automatically detect many memory management and threading bugs, avoiding hours of frustrating bug-hunting and making your programs more stable. You can also perform detailed profiling to help speed up your programs and use Valgrind to build new tools.

The Valgrind distribution currently includes six production-quality tools:

  • a memory error detector (Memcheck)
  • two thread error detectors (Helgrind and DRD)
  • a cache and branch-prediction profiler (Cachegrind)
  • a call-graph generating cache and branch-prediction profiler (Callgrind)
  • a heap profiler (Massif) It also includes three experimental tools:

  • a stack/global array overrun detector (SGCheck)

  • a second heap profiler that examines how heap blocks are used (DHAT)
  • a SimPoint basic block vector generator (BBV)
