apt-get on Suse


hey all,

I'm having a problem installing Apt-get on Suse 8.2. I think that it will run on Suse, but it is missing the libapt-pkg-libc6.3-5.so.0 file:

archimedes:/home/hamish/check # rpm -ivh apt-0.5.5cnc6-rb3.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
libapt-pkg-libc6.3-5.so.0 is needed by apt-0.5.5cnc6-rb3

Does anyone know where I can get this file?

I have been following instruction on http://www.dma.org/pipermail/linux-s...er/078615.html
but it suggests that I should install the Arklinux version of apt-get. When i tried this, it gave me even more dependencies.

Hopefully someone can help.

Thanks
hamish

thanks.

I have now got it installed!!

One last question: in RH one can "updatedb" (i think that is what it is called) to update the database of installed program (or whatever it does). Is there such a command in suse?

Thanks
Hamish

Yeah, open YaST > Install and remove programs > Search for "locate" > install findutils-locate package.

Then run updatedb. Then you can use locate <file> to find files.

The "whereis" is the best command to use when tracing conf-files, bin-files to programs, but just some programs will show results on whereis.

You can also use find / -name <file> but this will search your harddrive at the moment, but updatedb does it and locate searches in the database.
