Welcome to www.non-gnu.uvt.nl, currently hosted on freitag.uvt.nl, which is maintained by Joost van Baal and Wessel Dankers.

This site offers packages for various Free Software projects.

Free Software (currently: Postfix Solaris package, and Nagios's nrpe and plugin packages, subversion RPMs and other stuff) is packaged for your convenience. Get it here.

Thanks to the Tilburg University for offering resources.

Debian packages

Debian packages are available using apt: add something like (a subset of):

deb http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian etch uvt
deb-src http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian etch uvt
deb http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian lenny uvt
deb-src http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian lenny uvt

to your /etc/apt/sources.list. Use pinning to specify which packages you want to fetch from this site: if you'd like e.g. the sysklogd package add

Package: *
Pin: release o=UvT
Pin-Priority: 200

Package: sysklogd
Pin: release o=UvT
Pin-Priority: 999

to /etc/apt/preferences. The Releases are signed with key

pub   1024D/211A1230 2007-03-20
      Key fingerprint = 6CAC C5BC B3A1 6AFB B461  BDC9 2D59 FE31 211A 1230
uid   Tilburg University Debian Archive Automatic Signing Key (http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian)

The signing key can be get from http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian/. Run

 # apt-key add - < uvt_key.asc

to import it in your list of trusted keys.

If you'd like to convince yourself this key is trustworthy before importing it, you could do:

$ curl http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian/uvt_key-with-signatures.asc | gpg --import
$ gpg --list-sigs 2D59FE31211A1230

Now decide if these signatures convince you. Once convinced, do

$ gpg --export --armor 2D59FE31211A1230 | sudo apt-key add -

and optionally

$ gpg --delete-key 2D59FE31211A1230

View the result by running

$ sudo apt-key list

If everything worked out well, you'll no longer see warnings from apt about missing public keys. See also the Debian secure apt wiki page.

If you don't like pinning voodoo, you could forget about /etc/apt/preferences, and just add (a subset of):

deb http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian sarge cpqarraid cracklib libnet-imap-simple-perl mailman mpd
deb-src http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian sarge cracklib libnet-imap-simple-perl mailman

to your /etc/apt/sources.list. Check out debian/ for details about the specific packages. Check out http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian/dists/sarge/ and http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian/dists/etch/ for a list of offered repositories which is likely more up to date than above example list.

Red Hat RPMs

Red Hat RPMs are available for download.

Solaris packages

Solaris packages can be found here. NB: be sure to take a look at blastwave.org and sunfreeware.com too. You might be interested in SchilliX and/or in Nexenta aka Debian GNU/OpenSolaris.

Sources, patches and documents

Sources for binary packages are stored near the binary packages. Available: patches for mailman, sources for fair. There are also some documents for GNU/Linux and Unix administrators.


2014-11-26: Published RPMs for the old Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4, for i386, for the new stunnel 5.08b6: better support for disabling the broken SSLv3 protocol (POODLE). Had to backport m4 and autoconf too, to get it to build: RPMS for m4 and autoconf for those wanting to rebuild.

2014-09-29: Published RPMs for the old Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 9), for i386, for the old bash 2.05b, with patches dealing with the "Shell Shock" bug.

2007-03-30: Removed some obsolete and unmaintained stuff from the sarge section: mutt, openssl, aselect-1.4.1 and yaz. You are better off getting these from Debian or other sources.

2007-03-20: Added support for secure apt to the Debian package archive (finally!). The signing key can be get from http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian/. Run

2006-06-30: The yaz packages from this site are obsolete: there are new upstreams. Chances the packages here get updated are not very high: Debian packages by upstream are good enough for us. (I still feel it'd be very useful if the yaz packages in Debian would be more up to date, 'though...)

2006-06-12: Thanks to Wessel Dankers, updated A-Select Debian packages are available:

deb[-src] http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian sarge aselect-1.5

2006-02-17: Subversion 1.1.4 client suitable for installation on Red Hat EL AS release 3 published. This build includes libapr, libaprutil and libneon. Unfortunately, it turned out building an RPM using this scheme was not cost effective :(

See also ITP Bug#318461.

2005-09-22: Thanks to Guus Sliepen: Good news for those of you who like to run A-Select on Debian GNU/Linux sarge machines: Add

deb http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian sarge aselect

to your /etc/apt/sources.list, run "aptitude update" and view the extra packages available by running "aptitude search aselect". This stuff needs a binary java package, as created by java-package from Debian contrib. The binary packages on non-gnu.uvt.nl come with source packages. However, these source packages include precompiled binary stuff from the "upstream" aselect package. Another issue is: the web.xml files are installed as symlinks to actual files in /etc, however tomcat does not allow those files to be symlinks. You have to fix this yourself at the moment.

2005-09-12: We now offer some code via the darcs revision control system.

2005-09-08: Build nagios-plugins-1.4.1-3.uvt.i386.rpm, for Red Hat 2.1 AS.

2005-09-05: Build valgrind for Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 4). See the valgrind area.

2005-08-23: Thanks to Guus Sliepen, the sysklogd 1.4.1-17uvt2 Debian package is now offered. This package fixes the very annoying bug #44523.

2005-08-17: Thanks to Gunnar Wolf, libnet-imap-simple-perl is now available from Debian unstable. I've backported the package from Gunnar (with new upstream) to Debian sarge: libnet-imap-simple-perl_0.104-1sarge1_all.deb is available.

2005-08-15: postfix-2.2.5_3 Solaris package released: this package is blessed stable. Lots of spiffy new features, see the additional notes on the package.

2005-08-12: postfix-2.2.5_1-sol9-sparc-pkg.gz Solaris Postfix package released, as well as sources for easy building of this package. Beware! Untested beta quality!

2005-07-04: fetched cpqarrayd_2.0-4_i386.deb from sid. The cpqarrayd package shipped with sarge is next-to unusable.

2005-06-27: re-added libnet-imap-simple-ssl-perl Debian package: backport to sarge from Gunnar Wolf's Debian unstable upload.

2005-06-27: New 2.4.31 kernel images available. Since today, the qla2x00-modules packages are apt-able.

2005-06-24: Some of the Debian kernel-image packages here now are apt-able too. Woohoohoo! We offer a spiffy empty packages for dependency tracking too: kernel-image-2[4,6]-*-uvt.

2005-05-24: uvtpostfix-2.0.19-setldkit.tar.gz postfix package for Tru64 unix v5.1 OSF published, as build in april 2004. This is a very preliminary package, installable with the setld(8) OSF Software subset management utility. Actually, it'd better get shipped in RPM format...

2004-06-18: Minor update of Debian-Pkg, a 5 minute howto on using the Debian package management system.

2004-06-07: The libnet-imap-simple-perl and libnet-imap-simple-ssl-perl Debian packages will get uploaded to the Debian archive, probably by Florian Ragwitz. Thanks a lot Debian Perl group!

2004-06-04, Debian packages for the Net::IMAP::Simple and Net::IMAP::Simple::SSL CPAN perl modules are available. See also the libnet-imap-simple-perl and libnet-imap-simple-ssl-perl wnpp RFP bugreports.
