libpackman (Package Management) library provides a single API for accessing multiple package formats and package databases.
Libpackman's module support allows for other developers to quickly provide support for new package formats and database formats.
Libpackman is in the alpha stage. It currently supports reading of RPM packages, partial reading of Debian packages, reading of the RPM database, and reading/writing of the GNUpdate database. Packages can be queried, but installation is, for the moment, disabled.
NOTE: This is a development release, and may harm your system if you use it to install packages. We take no responsibility for corrupted package databases or filesystems.
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
Then compile it:
And finally, install it:
$ make install
