i am running knoppix linux from a cd, when i download rpm's kpackage always gives an error, ive tried about 15 different rpms from different locations and the f**king program kept giving this error::
rpm: To install rpm packages on Debian systems, use alien. See README.Debian.
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - No such file or directory (2)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
i need help with this, its really starting to piss me off.
