Menu based console package manager?

I am looking for a text based menu driven package manager for fedora core 2.

On text based install you get to see something like it. I can use yum etc. But would like a tool like yast2.

Any suggestions

Hi there,

you can try slackwares packaging system, uses tarballs.. for info about the system check here: slackware packaging tool. Here's a direct download link from the slackware FTP site. It should work on other distro's to I guess. For extra functionality, you can search for pkgtool on freshmeat or sourceforge.
