Linux

This page is not too interesting, except to serve as a place holder as a collection of links for software I'm using or developing or using for Linux.

Cryptographic software

Crypto++

Multimedia software

This is a combination of stuff to use, and some development tools I'm keeping handy, for when I begin my development.

decss.zip This is a DVD decoder, that allows you to watch a DVD you own on your computer.  It is the subject of many legal battles in the USA, but as far as I know, is legal in Australia.

css-auth.tar.gz  Part of the same package of files, described above.

LiVid.tgz  An under development Linux Video player.

Xine

This is a video player for Linux.  It supports a ton o' playback formats, and can even use Windows codecs, if they're available.  You can also download a plugin that will allow you to play back encrypted DVD's.  I bought a few DVDs a month or so back, and this is the only way I can seem to be able to play them back on my Linux box.  For ease and 'cause I keep losing his address, here is a local copy of the d5d playback plugin for Xine.

Favourite Linux related links.

http://slashdot.org  The mighty Slashdot.  Love it or hate it, it is a great source of Linux advocacy and mindless ranting about all things anti-Microsoft.
http://www.redhat.com  We all know who they are.
http://www.debian.org/  Another distribution of Linux.  They are a very pure GPL distro, and as such, command and deserve a great deal of respect in the community.
