Loki Setup is a graphical installer for Unix applications. It features descriptions of the package to install in XML, a GTK interface that can be dynamically redefined by the user with Glade, raw and ncurses console interfaces, and the automatic generation of uninstall scripts. It has been successfully used on many Linux and UNIX platforms. It includes tools for uninstalling, patching, and recovering installations. It operates independently from any package managers.
Dpsyco is a automated system to distribute system configurations to several computers. It is written mainly for the Debian distribution but should be portable (without too much difficulties) to other distributions or Unixes as well. It consists of a number of shell scripts to perform the desired actions. With it you can handle users, add ssh-public-keys, patch the system, update things using cfengine, install files (overriding other package files), and more.
Ice Sound Manager was designed to ease the management of sound events, sound themes, and the IceSound server in the IceWM window manager. It is also intended to be an improvement upon the noble but primitive icesndcfg. The main improvements over icesndcfg include a support for sound event "themes", more comprehensive help, easy management and configuration of the IceSound server, a cleaner GUI interface, automatic starting of the IceSound server, and a more conservative approach to disk space usage.
lt is a package management tool which can be used to install, query, check, update and remove software packages. Each package is located in its own directory, then symbolic links are used to make package files accessible in traditional common location (/usr/local). No database is used, and lt is simple and stateless.
IPFS (IPSquad Package From Source) is a system which allows you to trace an program's installation from sources and register it in your favorite packaging system (only the Slackware package system and RPM are currently supported). IPFS watches a command (generally make install), collects the list of added files, and then registers them in the chosen packaging system as if the install was made from a normal package. Unlike other similar products, IPFS is able to track both shared and statically linked programs.
