Linux I wrote an article a while ago on Linux packaging and Autopackage. There seemed to be quite a lot of interest in it so we got version 0.3 released today.

The download occurs when the support code is found to not exist. Currently, is does not search in the launch directory for the support code before it goes out to the internet.

To manually install support code:
expand archive and execute autopackage/INSTALL file.

Then if you execute any of the packages, the support code is found and it continues to finish the installation. If you want the GTK front end, it would be just like any other package installation - download and execute.

To remove packages and autopackage itself (user or root installs):
package remove gaim visual-ldd autopackage-gtkfe autopackage
