Well .rpm is redhat package manager. Used on distributions such as mandrake and Fedora core.

.deb is a debian package used by Debian etc.

As you can see Slackware (from your info) doesn't use either of these packaging methods.

Normally a program will be released in source code as well as binary. This would mean that any Linux distro can install it providing you have the correct compiler and dependencies. It doesn't seem to be the case here, they aren't releasing the source code, only the 2 binaries.

You might be able to look into a way of extracting all the neccesary files from the .rpm.

Or go for K3B

http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=7926 - there's the slackware (10.2) package

i've never used slackware for more than a few days but this - http://www.userlocal.com/articles/slackwaretools.php - mentions how to install packages in slackware. You will probably need these packages too - FFMpeg, FLAC, Lame, libsamplerate, libsndfile, Musepack, MusicBrainz, Ogg Vorbis, and Taglib according to the website - http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=7608

This - http://slackpkg.sourceforge.net/ - has info that might prove useful, i imagine K3B is on the official mirror, i prefer this sort of method because they tend to install dependencies (other programs/libraries required) for you.

Thumbs down

Why the hell did you delete the contents of the original post in this thread? By doing that you completely destroy the context of the thread and remove any usefulness it would have had for others who have the same or similar questions in the future.

Exactly the same output or a load of text that didn't make sense?

If you say what you did and didn't do (including command output etc), or didn't understand people are in a better position to help you.

i dont really need k3b i just want somthing that burns and for nero it worked but it said somthing about my DMA Accesselator (sorry cant spell it lo) and that my DVD/Burner wasnt installed or something

Edit: This is the error message i get when i click nero.

NeroLINUX has detected that some of your IDE devices are using the "ide-cdrom" driver. This driver is not useable with CD/DVD recording software such as NeroLINUX.Please use the 'ide-scsi' if you want to use the devices below.

/dev/hdc (CD-ROM Drive/G6D)
/dev/hdd (DVD-RW IDE1008)

I think this should help you alot to point me out in what i need to do to get these devices working
