Re: Newbie Idea


I was wondering about a program like this when I was first trying to
understand why each distribution had its own program packaging system. Maybe
it is worth mentioning.

From Freshmeat:
Alien 6.34
Alien is a program that converts between the rpm, dpkg, stampede slp, and
slackware tgz file formats. If you want to use a package from another
distribution than the one you have installed on your system, you can use
alien to convert it to your preferred package format and install it.
