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.
