I'm curious to know what ones... I don't recall having that problem.

Well there is also YUM.  See http://www.linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/

Similar to apt-rpm.  Written in Python.  I've never personally used it, but 
looking at its webpage it sounds good.  :-)

Also see http://www.rpm.org/software/updaters/ for some more choices.
