Yum is a nice client side tool to ease downloading and
updating RPMs.  It is hosted at http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/
and you can download prebuilt RPMs for it from freshrpms.net.
 From the Duke site:

"Yum is an automatic updater and package installer/remover
for rpm systems. It automatically computes dependencies and
figures out what things should occur to install packages. It
makes it easier to maintain groups of machines without
having to manually update each one using rpm."

To use the RTEMS Yum repository, add the following
lines as /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rtems.list:

rpm ftp://ftp.rtems.com/pub/rtems/linux/redhat/7.3/i386 apt rtems-4.6 
rpm-src ftp://ftp.rtems.com/pub/rtems/linux/redhat/7.3/i386 apt 
rtems-4.6 rtems-4.7

Then "apt-get -d update" to fetch the list of RPMs available
from ftp.rtems.com and you are ready to install a toolset
like this:

apt-get install rtems-4.6-automake-rtems
apt-get install rtems-4.6-autoconf-rtems
apt-get install rtems-4.6-${c}-rtems-binutils
apt-get install rtems-4.6-${c}-rtems-gdb
apt-get install rtems-4.6-${c}-rtems-gcc
apt-get install rtems-4.6-${c}-rtems-c++
apt-get install rtems-4.6-${c}-rtems-gnat

NOTE: 4.7 series tools will be available for download via the same
mechanism concurrent with the first 4.7 snapshot.  They will
follow the naming pattern "rtems-4.7-${c}-rtems4.7-TOOL".
