Gentoo Linux is a versatile and fast Linux distribution for x86, PowerPC, Sparc, and Sparc64 that's geared towards Linux power users. Unlike other distros, it has an advanced package management system called Portage. Portage is a true ports system in the tradition of BSD ports, but is Python-based and sports a number of advanced features including dependencies, fine-grained package management, "fake" (OpenBSD-style) installs, path sandboxing, safe unmerging, system profiles, virtual packages, config file management, and more.

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.
