Question Can i use deb software on suse


i used to work on suse 10.1. then someone told that ubuntu repositories are far more extensive than suse. tried ubuntu, it was right. but ubuntu wasn't really that cool and techhy as suse.

Yes, afaik, but I'm not sure what the procedure is to make it tick. I know that, when set up right, Smart has pretty good deb support. Don't hold me to it, but I think Yast2 may have deb support out of the box.

What packages are you looking for? I've never had a problem finding what I need in rpm format.
