The GNOME NetworkManager is a set of co-operative tools that make networking simple and straightforward. Whether wireless or wired, NetworkManager allows you to quickly move from one network to another: once a network has been configured and joined once, it can be detected and re-joined automatically at a later date. It was designed to auto-detect as much information as possible, seamlessly switches connections when necessary, and provides immediate feedback of the network state to users and applications.
BitRock InstallBuilder allows you to create easy-to-use multiplatform installers for Linux (x86/PPC/s390/x86_64/Itanium), Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86/Sparc), IRIX, AIX, and HP-UX applications. The generated application installers have a native look-and-feel and no external dependencies, and can be run in GUI, text, and unattended modes. In addition to self-contained installers, the installation tool is also able to generate standalone RPM packages.
Rally is a software component with a user interface which allows a user to install, update, and remove packages on RPM based operating systems. Primary functions (downloading software packages from network repositories and their installation) may be performed in parallel. The user interface is split into two independent parts: a graphical one and a command line utility. The graphical interface contains package searching and category browsing functions. Rally assumes the Fedora project as a reference platform.
UniPKG (Universal PaCkaGe manager) is a modular package manager. It supports the RPM, deb, Slackware TGZ, and ArchLinux package formats, and doesn't depend on any of the distribution tools or libraries. It is completely self-sufficient, as formats such as cpio or tar are reimplemented.
