makeself is a small shell script that generates a self-extractable compressed TAR archive from a directory. The resulting file appears as a shell script, and can be launched as is. The archive will then uncompress itself to a temporary directory and an arbitrary command will be executed (for example, an installation script). This is pretty similar to archives generated with WinZip Self-Extractor in the Windows world.

Payload Delivery Vehicle (PDV) is a program that builds an executable that contains a complete package (e.g. and RPM, System V package or tar file) and the commands required to install it. When the executable is run it will extract the payload (the package) and then execute another command (such as rpm -i, pkgadd -d etc.). The big advantage to this is that a developer can hand a user a single file to be executed - the end user does not need to know how to extract the package or get it installed.

VAInstall is a multi-platform installer written in Java. Through a simple config file, it allows the packager to pick files and directories from various places on disk, and not only one root dir like other installers. The packager can completely reorganize the files and dirs on the destination host. He can choose the install mode for the destination host (graphic, xtra, text, or ANSI). VAInstall takes minimum space on the destination host; it does not write any large temporary files on disk, and supports easy and powerful uninstallation.

Installwatch is a simple utility which keeps track of which files are created and modified during the installation of a new program. It's fast and easy to use. It doesn't require a "pre-install" phase because it monitors processes while they run. Installwatch works with every dynamically linked ELF program, by intercepting system calls that cause file system alterations.
