Red face reference manager(endnote similar software)

I searched this forum and tried to find something about the similar software of endnote, but I didn't get the answers. I am trying to use red hat 8 now, but my problem is that I can not find a good software like endnote in the windows to manage my references. I need dowload a lot of references, and I don't know how to manage them without endnote.

Is there anyone who knows some good software like endnote to manage the references? Or give me some advice about how to manage the references.

Thank you very much.
I am a beginner in the linux word. Thank you for your help.

Haven't tried any of them, just found
them on Freshmeat, using either
"endnote" or "manage reference"
as search criteria...

Exclamation HELP with sixpack !!!!


I've heard that the best reference manager is "sixpack". I've tried installing it on RH8.0 and havent been able to get it running. I installed:

perl-bp and sixpack from sorceforge, but sixpack also needs perl-Tk module. I installed perl-Tk from an rpm designed for RH 7, that I got from .

Sixpack rpm's detected the perl-Tk and installed correctly, but when I wanted to run sixpack by typing the comand "bib", the bloody thing gave me the follwoing error:

**** Failed to load Tk. Sixpack requires the perl/tk module for the GUI to work
Bareword "Tk::break" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at /usr/bin/bib line 5105.
Execution of /usr/bin/bib aborted due to compilation errors.

HELP....I need to get this thing running, I'm going nuts. I've tried installing different types of perl-Tk distros and nothing works. If anybody's got sixpack running on RH8, please give us directions...greatly appreciate it.

Additionally, I now installed perl-Tk-800.024-1.i386.rpm, the latest version of perl-Tk and sixpack wont recognize that one either. I know that it probably just needs a symlink, but I havent figured out where the symlink goes.

Hope this helps the guru's
