Installing Apt for Mandrake 9


I have been reading through the other posts for installing apt on non-Debian distros. Unfortunately, they are all RedHat (and others specific). When I try to follow the instructions I get a number of dependency problems - when I try to resolve them, I hit conflicts. BTW - if it would help to show the problems I am having, please let me know.

I suppose I have more than 1 question on this:

1. Has anyone else managed to install apt-get for Mdk9? If so, can they provide me with a step by step guide? Including, hopefully, help with Synaptic or similar GUI prog.

2. Is there a version of apt-get for Mdk9? - I'd hate to think that I am doing this and it can't/won't work. I have done Google searches and have come up blank.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Thanks for the links - I had seen the word urpmi, but knew nothing about it. Didn't realise that it would be so useful.....thanks again
