Utilities and other stuff for :

  • KDE
  • console
  • PLIB and OpenGL
  • Code snippets (extern, German)

  • Beside this utlities page there is also my gallery of computers.

  • I started a new project, CCS, a clearing center server. There is a draft about it and finally some source code.

  • There is a little help page for using the following packages.


    Here are some utilities for the K Desktop Environment :

    Troll Tech's tmake RPM

    rch A rc-script handler as a binary program. I read about r2d2,a script thatmanages the starting/stopping of your Unix system and the switching betweenrun levels much smarter. It uses one configuration file instead of determiningthe order by symlinks and numbered file names. As I had some problems with thescript (maybe because I didn't understand it) but liked the idea much morethan the convential approach, I wrote rch in C (r2d2 is a shell script).

    plib & OpenGL

    This is a beginning of a game - maybe. I'm still at the basics like modelling, animation, network communication and so on.
    If it gets so far, it may become an on-line RPG, but that may take a while.
    Only in German : Hier sind ein paar screenshots und einige Gegenstände zu sehen.
    Code snapshots:wd.tar.bz2 (~2.1M) July 3rd.
    wd-020710.tar.bz2 (~2.2M) July 10th.
    wd-020711.tar.bz2 (~2.2M) July 11th.
    wd-020715b.tar.bz2 (~2.4M) July 15th.

    Here are some examples of OpenGL programs from the SGI server (SIGGRAPH): advanced.zip.
