My advice will be to use Debian if you want to use apt-get. It is already reconfigured to work out of the box and it does a really nice job.

Good luck to you.

Yum is the 'standard' on CentOS...is there a reason you installed/want to use apt-get, instead of the built-in yum? You should just be able to type in "yum install libbz2"...

If I give "yum install libbz2" it says "No libbz2 package available".
Actually for my project I need to install EMOTIVE on CentOS.
Every command is with "apt-get".
If I replace "apt-get" with "yum" it says "No package available"

You are assuming that the package names are the same across distros, this isn't always true. Installing apt won't fix this issue. You need to find the equivalent package names for CentOS.

IIRC bzip2-libs is the equivalent package to the Debian/Ubuntu libbz2.

Use the yum search command with variants of a package's name. If you get some interesting, possible results then use the yum info command to get a little detail.

Another way to approach this would be to know one of the files within the package. Then you could search with yum provides instead. Spend some time with the yum man page and you will get an idea about the types of things you can do.
