Package maintenance system for Debian Linux
This package provides the low-level infrastructure for handling the installation and removal of Debian software packages. This package contains the tools (including dpkg-source) required to unpack, build and upload Debian source packages. This package also contains the programs dpkg which used to handle the installation and removal of packages on a Debian system. This package also contains dselect, an interface for managing the installation and removal of packages on the system. dpkg and dselect will certainly be non-functional on a rpm-based system because packages dependencies will likely be unmet.
