I've been packaging DFIR apps for openSUSE recently. Most are
currently in a security repo, but I hope to get them into the next
release of openSUSE which is scheduled for this summer.
I've got 10 or 15 done including sleuthkit which is already in the
current openSUSE 12.1 release.
I've just created a basic portal page that shows what apps are
available and how to install them into openSUSE.
If anyone would like to join me in this effort by either editing the
wiki page, working on additional packages, or even just recommending
additional packages to the list, please step up. It's easy (and free)
to get an openSUSE user account that allows you to edit the wiki or
work in the openSUSE Build Service (OBS).
OBS is where the packaging actually takes place. As an example
sleuthkit can be found here:
