    Welcome to the forums!

    You have to have one of the package tools that you mentioned above installed if you want to use it to install packages. It's also preferable that it is the one that was actually meant for the distribution that you are running. Each of those package tools uses a certain kind of package for that particular package tool and they don't install tarballs. You can find a HowTo for installing software with both, package tools and from source, here:

    If you look in the x-linux manual, under "Install Your Program", it suggests compiling apps on a different system and manually installing the binaries et al to the embedded system. (In their example, they have an ftp server running to upload their programs to x-linux.)

    Download link for manual on this site:

    and if i make this on a different machine an transfer this on the embedded pc can't work because it's making for a 686 pc, and the system is a 486 pc...

    you can cross compile on some other platform for your target platform, there you will set flags in gcc
