Mpkg is a ports collection. Each port contains the information necessary to automatically download, compile, and install a specific program, and also information about dependencies between programs. Ports collections are common on various BSD flavors, but mpkg is designed to be portable to any UNIX-like system. Development has been done on DEC OSF/1, GNU/Linux, and Solaris. Mpkg also tries to install all programs in separate directories, never touching the common directories like /usr and /etc.

SrcControl is a new form of package management system. It doesn't have a centralized package repository and packages don't have the actual data for the program it installs. What a package, or "source package", contains is information required to locate and properly download, extract, configure, compile, and install the newest version from the Internet. The whole point is to create an 'add-on' package management system supported by any Linux/Unix distribution. Programs that aren't supplied by a distribution can be easily installed without users having to figure out how to compile the program on their own.

A simple and trivial to use utility for keeping various 3rd party application packages installed on multiple machines. It leaves flexibility for making packages local to a host or remotely served from a central server. It is not the same sort of tool as RPM; rather it serves a related but different purpose. In particular, unlike most package systems, it can run independently of your main system (RPM, pkgadd, etc) and lets you install multiple versions of an appplication at the same time.

Wine-doors is an application designed to make installing Windows software on Linux, Solaris, or other Unix systems easier. It is essentially a package management tool for Windows software on Unix systems. It is developed and styled to fit in with the GNOME desktop, but is fairly portable and a user interface could be developed for KDE. The main goals are to replace winetools, allow flexible application management, provide Queue processing capabilities, provide Application Database integration, avoid global native overrides, automatically add items to the desktop menus, and allow users to manage their Windows applications with profiles and bottles.
