The OpenPKG project released version 2.1 of their unique RPM-based cross-platform Unix software packaging facility.OpenPKG 2.1 consists of 495 selected (from a pool of 770) packages which include latest versions of popular Unix
software like Apache, Bash, BIND, GCC, INN, Mozilla, MySQL, OpenSSH, Perl, Postfix, PostgreSQL, Samba, Squid, teTeX and Vim — all carefully packaged for easy deployment on 21 different Unix platforms, including
FreeBSD 4.10/5.2, Debian GNU/Linux 3.0/3.1, Red Hat Linux 9, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, Fedora Core 2, SuSE Linux 9.0/9.1, and Sun Solaris 2.6/8/9/10.
