AGNULA (A GNU/Linux distribution for audio) – a project started by the European Commission, aimed at creating two Linux distributions that could be used to process music and sound: ReHMuDi (Red Hat Multimedia Distribution) and DeMuDi (Debian Multimedia Distribution). The project has developed as a multimedia harvester with many practical solutions that are not found even in commercial multimedia systems.

The project was coordinated by Centro Tempo Reale (Florence, Italy) and sees the participation of a range of actors from the research, university and business arenas.

The project was funded by the European Commission from April 1, 2002 to March 31, 2004. When the Commission stopped funding the project, volunteers continued work on DeMuDi, while work on the ReHMuDi branch was discontinued.

The purposes of AGNULA can be summarized as follows:
– support the development of GNU/Linux distributions completely dedicated to audio applications.
– provide coordinated access to the widest combination of Free audio software in a coherent environment. This will enhance state-of-the-art research and development in the audio field.
– provide a audio system based on Libre Software which will enhance customized usage (useful in cultural and artistic environments).
– help spreading sensibility on the topics of Libre Software (with specific attention paid to audio/video applications and content distribution).

WarBSD – a “tool for network testing” a wireless network based on FreeBSD 5.0, so-called war driving kit. Inspired by the WarLinux included.

Stacy Olivas merged a version of PicoBSD with the FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE-p7. Then he looked into WarLinux, examining how to use it as embedded Linux, and then realized that it could be done with PicoBSD.

He started the WarBSD project, which, according to the maker, is not a new *BSD code fork, but the BSD equivalent of WarLinux. WarBSD is a wireless network auditing tool.

Eclipse/BSD – an operating system which is the basis for testing the Quality of Service (QoS) that is being developed at the Information Sciences Research Center at Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies. Eclipse/BSD is based on FreeBSD version 3.4., and is compatible with FreeBSD, supporting the same system calls, protocols, drivers and applications.

The system developers have implemented hierarchical proportional share cpu, disk and link schedulers, the /reserv file system providing an API to manipulate “reservations” and a tagging mechanism for the association of reservations with schedulable operations.

Eclipse/BSD is being used to guarantee QoS to server applications, and in particular to differentiate the performance of different web sites hosted on the same platform.

The demand to provide Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees is increasing with the need to run multiple server applications, such as audio and video media servers and web servers, and host services for multiple entities (e.g., companies, individuals) on the same platform. QoS requirements may be client-based, service-based, contentbased, and so on.

CapROS (Capability-based Reliable Operating System) – an experimental capability-based operating system, based on EROS, KeyKOS, and Gnosis. Ports exist for the Intel IA-32 and ARM9 architectures. CapROS is an operating system that merges some very old ideas about capabilities with some newer ideas about performance and resource management. The result is a small, secure, real-time operating system that provides orthogonal persistence.

It is a pure capability-based system that features automatic persistence of data and processes, even across system reboots. Capability systems naturally support the principle of least authority, which improves security and fault tolerance.

The CapROS project is led by Charles Landau. It was under developed by Strawberry Development Group with funding from DARPA and others.
