Question Kolab - openpkg - debian


I like to install Kalop on a Debian system.
There is no apt for kalop the only way to get it is with openpkg

I never used openpkg until now, but I have installed a bare bone Debian on my test box and installed openpkg.

Here are my questions.

Should I use apt-get to install apache2, php4, mySQL, bind9 etc and then only get Kalop from openPKG
should I install everything with openPKG?

I have installed openssl and bind9 with openPKG but can't figure out how to get it to work.

There is a whole new structure with etc, var, usr... folders in the openPKG folder - how do I get the system to recognize those configs and see the new software?

Also bind9 needed ssl but that was already installed via apt-get how do you solve the dependency problem?

Does anyone have any experience with this stuff?

Thanks for your input and help
