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.
ISO Master is an easy to use GUI CD image editor for Linux, BSD, and Windows. Basically, you can use this program to extract files from an ISO, add files to an ISO, and create bootable ISOs, all in a graphical user interface. It can open both ISO and NRG files, but can only save as ISO. It is based on bkisofs, a library for reading, modifying, and writing ISO images.
The GNOME Structured File Library is a utility library for reading and writing structured file formats. Support for MS OLE2 streams is complete, as is zip import. There is also support for document metadata and some initial work on decompressing VBA streams in OLE files for future conversion to other languages. This library replaces libole2 and is used in gnumeric, mrproject, abiword, libwv2, koffice. It is also part of the AAF format.
wget can be used to download a Web site, with all pages referenced by the originating one, but it saves all pages in a directory tree (or single directory). The intention of web-archive-creator is to join the power of wget and the usability of the .war format, which Konqueror is able to browse. The Web ARrchive format is simply a tarred and gzipped file containing the Web files. The web-archive-creator script performs the download with wget and writes an index.html linking to the starting pages/URLs wget fetched.
UniPackage is an alternative to distribution-specific packaging systems like dpkg and RPM. UniPackage is a simple system that works on any Linux distribution. UniPackage packages are tar.bz2 archives which contain a self-contained "AppDir" which can be moved anywhere in the filesystem without disturbing the application's installation. In most cases, this packaging does not require changes to the application's code. The issue of dependencies is avoided by bundling all required libraries in the AppDir.
KDE Disk archiver is a disk-based archiving and backup utility. It can perform differential backups, which means that it can quickly store the differences between a recent full backup and the current state of your data. An archive browser easily allows you to view the "table of contents" of your archive. A sophisticated file filtering mechanism allows you to select which files and directories to backup or restore, and which files to compress. The table of contents can be extracted from the archive and used as a reference when making differential backups, which means you don't need your archive CDs handy to do a differential backup of the entire filesystem.
gnome-pkgtool is a GTK+/GNOME front-end to Slackware package management tools (pkgtool). You can install/uninstall/upgrade .tgz packages, build packages from source and install them, and inspect package content. It relies on the installpkg(8) and removepkg(8) tools for installing and uninstalling packages, and on checkinstall for building packages from source.
