package manager?

what would you suggest i use, it needs to have rpm deb and tgz files i haven't gotten to X yet (i'm on a 56k) so it happens to be console based

after that i need an x upgrade for it (so i can fix up for it)

I think the tgz files can be used now....

tar -zxvf <file>.tgz

I think there's a section in BLFS for pkgtool too.

For the others, check here and scroll down to the package manager section.
