Azureus Java BitTorrent Client GPL users A nice way to spread the SUSE ISOs

... and it's already in Fedora (Extras)... so include it! ;-)

Azureus versions greater than should work fine with GNU Classpath, it'd be really nice to have packages for Azureus that'd use that, so I don't have to bother with Sun's non-free Java platform. The Azureus package in Fedora Extras ( beta) works great without Sun's Java, and on both x86, x86_64 and PPC. --Tsuroerusu 21:49, 8 Aug 2006 (MDT)]

KNetStats KNetStats GPL A simple KDE network monitor that show rx/tx LEDs Very useful icon in tray in KDE.

A simple KDE network monitor that show rx/tx LEDs or numeric information about the transfer rate of any network interface in a system tray icon. The source code of the current version (v1.3) is avaliable for download at Sourceforge download and CVS servers.


  • See network activity and transfer rate of any network interface (including localloopback)
  • Support multiple network interfaces.
  • See simple statistics (packets and bytes received and transmitted).
  • Configurable Update Interval, View mode, Icon themes, etc.
  • GPL'ed, you can use and modify for free (Following GPL conditions)


This should be installed by default, maybe with a checkbox in the 'YAST-Control Center - Network Devices/Network Cards' when configuring a new network interface' to add the icon automatically. Also, not part of this package, but it could be very very nice to have, like in XP, a sub-menu in the start menu to show all network interfaces dans their status, for most users and admins it could be very usefull. In this 'Network Connections' menu we could have to state of the firewall on each interface and also PLEASE some 'translation' between the new interface ID system (eth-id-xx.xx.xx.xx.xx) and the old one (ethx) so it could be more easy to find and configure the right one.--Romainp

It has great detection for various download failures like premature close of connection, timeout on send etc. Just give it a file, and forget about it.

PuTTY Open source SSH client written by Simon Tatham MIT Licence Users who switch from Windows to Linux I was asked multiple times by Linux newbies who had freshly switched from Windows to install PuTTY for them, they were used to PuTTY and liked it so much, they wanted "to keep it". After some search I found a PuTTY RPM for SUSE. The package is not even one MB in size, it would fit easily onto the media.

PuTTY is currently available in the Build_Service home:peternixon repository

Rsync with ACL support in the inst-source path ! Fast Remote Sync Tool GPL2 admins needing ACLs backupped

No serious admin can live without rsync, and I cannot run backups without rsync supporting ACLs ! SuSE 9.2 and 9.3 had it, SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 has it, why not OpenSuSE as well ? Having to run an online-update to get such an essential feature sucks.

The rsync from 10.0 has ACL support. What is missing? --A jaeger 14:51, 11 February 2006 (UTC)

Request Tracker Helpdesk Ticketing System GPL Anyone with a bad memory

Even amateur admins need request tracker, and home users can use it to track friends with broken Win machines. OK, perhaps we shouldn't care about them ;) Request Tracker doesn't really need an introduction, as it is so well established it already has an O'Reilly book available.

tcptraceroute tcptraceroute is a traceroute implementation using TCP packets. GPL sysadmins
trickle trickle is a portable lightweight userspace bandwidth shaper. trickle runs entirely in userspace and does not require root privileges. BSD User Usefull if you want to borrow some bandwidth unnoticed or control the bandwidth used in downloads.

Trickle together with a tray app, and/or a YaST module could easily provide executable-name based firewalling (simply set bandwidth to zero). Even without trickle it would be a great feature to add firewall filters based on executable names (see Traffic Shaping and related how-to's)
