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 problem with linux.....
The problem with you is that you don't use the right tool to install software. Installing software only with rpm, is just like compiling a software only with gcc.

For the second one, it's quite easier to do : $ make
For the first one, you must install and use yum

That doesn't mean that gcc is a bad compiler or rpm a bad software installer. They are some good critics against rpm
in the article of the author (espacillay rpms between various distros), but this one is a troll.

I agree it should be by default in the distro. It is in Mandrake (urpmi), and it will be in the next Redhat.
