Paco is a source code package organizer for Unix/Linux systems, originally written to aid package management when installing an LFS system.

When installing a package from sources, paco wraps the "make install" command (or whatever is needed to install the files into the system), and generates a log containing the list of all installed files.

Technically, this is done by preloading a shared library before installation using the environment variable LD_PRELOAD. During installation this library catches the system calls that cause filesystem alterations, logging the created files.

Like any other package manager, paco also provides several options to show package information in different formats. It can remove packages too, among some other basic operations. See the man page for more details.

Gpaco is the GTK+ graphic interface of paco. It's included in the same tarball and installed by default, althought it can be disabled at
