grimse, maybe take a look at NS2:

Not for sure but this is what you might be looking for, check out Cheops from http://www.marko.net/cheops/ . Only problem is for me it will not compile on new distros. It does work but on an old 2.2 kernel distro I still have around. If you can get it to work post how and what setup you did it on.

Couldn't wait, gave it a try. Well cheops-ng works pretty well on FC3 with kernel 2.6.11-8 on kde3.4.2a.
