Unhappy Synaptic package manager on Fedora Core 3


I'm trying to install Synaptic Package manager on Fedora Core 3, but no success.
I need the packages APT and RPM.. but I can't find them anywhere...
Can anyone tell me where I can get them?

Thanks in advance,
Joao

I would personally not use synaptic on RH / FC since it was designed for debian, and not really well supported on FC. Debian is actually quite a bit easier to use than it used to be, though.
As far as gettoing apt and rpm, you should have them, buit you can use yum to get them too...

try reading `man yum`

mrGenixus apt and synaptic work very well on rpm based distros.

Anyway you can get apt add the code below to your /etc/yum.conf
Code:
[extras]
name=Fedora Extras - $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/$releasever/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/RPM-GPG-KEY-Fedora-Extras
Then do
Code:
#yum install apt
#yum install synaptic

I stand corrected, my information was bad. thought synaptic was debian-specific.

never the less, my information was correct.

Not to worry many people who use Debian still think that apt is only available for their distro and its derivatives. Quite a few RPM based distros use apt and synaptic as their sole package managers e.g. Yoper.

What do you mean a bad key? More information about your problem will be useful.
