Package Manager Cheatsheet

This matrix lists common tasks and the command arguments to perform the task with dpkg, rpm, apt, and yum. Note that apt and yum are really front-end tools for managing packages with dpkg and rpm. The RPM-oriented commands are known to work on Red Hat/Fedora; Mandrake, SUSE, etc are unknown, as some ship slightly older versions. urpmi is not included because I don't have a Mandrake installation to test it on. SysV packages are included because I'm using Solaris again frequently.
