I added a Data Acquisition section to the physics wiki page[1] - so I

nice to have one.

We have been developing a data acquisition and control system for our beamline at the Advanced Photon Source. It can also be used for general purpose DAQ as long as we have drivers for the devices. The biggest problem is that the documentation is not quite ready for prime-time but there are already Debian packages on my private repository. We have been using these packages at the beamline for several years. My intent is to get it into lenny+1. The control system is called MX


and the repository is

deb http://debian-xray.iit.edu lenny main contrib non-free

I can put this on the wiki if people think it is a good idea.
