Unhappy Zipped File = No Go!


Greetings,

Since installing Knoppix last week I've been searching for applications to download. Been unable to because there are usually several associated files, and I don't understand how dependencies, libraries, etc, work yet. I finally found a zipped file hoping it would be complete and install itself as needed, but it didn't work. Here's the info:

name
bdc
summary
BitDefender 7.0/Linux
version
7.0.1 -2
group
System Environment/Utilities
size
2255703
description
Bitdefender 7.0/Linux 7.0 beta This beta version of BitDefender for Linux should work on all Linux distributions. It was tested on RedHat 7.0 and Slackware 8.0
unsatisfied dependencies

filename
/root/.kpackage/ bdc-7.0.1-3.i386.rpm

What am I missing to get this file to open? Does "db3" refer to Debian?

Thanks.

hmm....
well i'm a debian user but i hear knoppix is based on debian so i'll give you a debian way of setting things up. first i assume you unzipped the file okay
Code:
unzip <name of application>
. what you are left with is an rpm(package format). this is redhat's and a fair amount of other distros. I am guessing that knoppix is supposed to support a bunch of different package systems. if so who knows. anyhow there is a debian program called alien
Code:
alien <name of rpm>
this should convert it to a deb file(debians package format). from there an
Code:
apt-get <name of new deb fille>
should go out and get all dependencies not filled in the system. and install what is needed. good luck.
