Conversii intre pachete rpm si deb

De multe ori mi s-a intamplat sa gasesc programe care din pacate pentru mine, nu erau disponibile pentru distributia mea linux. Trebuie sa recunosc acest lucru ma deranjeaza pentru ca intr-un fel este o discriminare, deoarece nu toti utilizatorii care au trecut la linux nu au idee despre a utiliza consola pentru instala un program folosind codul sursa. Astazi pot spune ca am dat peste un program care reuseste sa realizeze o conversie intre pachetele rpm si deb. Numele acestui pogram este alien.

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. Despite the large version number, alien is still (and will probably always be) rather experimental software. It has been used by many people for many years, but there are still many bugs and limitations. Alien should not be used to replace important system packages, like sysvinit, shared libraries, or other things that are essential for the functioning of your system. Many of these packages are set up differently by Debian and Red Hat, and packages from the different distributions cannot be used interchangably. In general, if you can’t uninstall the package without breaking your system, don’t try to replace it with an alien version.

Programul alien poate fi instalat folosind managerul de pachete al distributiei linux folosite; daca totusi acest pachet nu este disponibil il puteti obtine de aici. Ca si tutoriale pentru conversie pot spune ca acesta si acesta mi s-au parut destul de utile pentru cei care doresc sa foloseasca programul alien.
