I'm using RH 8 and I've installed apt and synaptic successfully, but whenever I try to use apt-het update it doesn't work. When I use synaptic, I get the following msg:
could not open RPM package list file /var/state/apt/lists/apt.freshrpms.net_redhat_8.0_en_i386_base_pkglist.os: (no error)
Problem opening /var/state/apt/lists/apt.freshrpms.net_redhat_8.0_en_i386_base_pkglist.os
The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.
Yeah, I tried searching Google but that didn't return any results, I'm stuck too. I never got it working, even in bash apt-get doesn't work.
I get something like this:
$ apt-get update
0% [apt server name or IP address]
and that's it, it's stuck, I have to press ctrl-C or ctrl-Z to get out of it.
That and synaptic ... :-/
