RH8 user trying to avoid rpm
im trying to figure out how i can either:
1. avoid using them alltogether but im not sure how to go about that. I had heard that i could use debians .deb files instead.
2. configuring apt-get so that it doesnt only look at one depository for dependancies. i looked at the /etc/apt/sources.list but i dont know what to point it at.
so here are my questions.
can i install a .deb file on my rh8 machine?
and if so, does will the .deb file have all of the dependancies packaged with it, or will i have to use apt-get.
thanks for your time,
