CL apt-get repositories?

Where can I find apt repositories other than the ones provided by Conectiva itself?

I mean, the same way freshrpms/fedora/jpackage for RedHat and others... (jpackage has a "generic" repository, so I think it could be used at no risk)

Well, maybe those repositories can be used without problems, but I want to know if there any that directly supports Conectiva the way other rpm based distributions do or the way Debian do (with .deb)

Tks a lot.

go to, search the package you want and it will give you the "unofficial" apt-get repository. or add

deb stable main contrib

for the stable releases of debian (replace stable with testing or unstable if you wish)

i'm a debian user but i hear conectiva is close to debian and they should work.

hope it helps
