apt-get installation

I'm more than sure someone already asked this question and i tried looking for it in the forum, but either i didn't type the right thing in the search or it's too old, but i couldn't find anything.

Basically i'm trying to install apt4rpm (apt-get) on SuSe 8.2 and the program has, hmm, let's say a billion unsatisfied dependancies. I've downloaded all the files from and tried to install each one as new dependancy problems came up but each one of those had another billion dependanices unsatisfied. Is there a standard set of packages i need to install on SuSe 8,2 to use apt-get and if there is, can some1 give it to me and the order in which i need to install all of them.

I've also seen in one of the posts that Yast has a feature to auto download needed files but i'm assuming it doesn't work if there's apt-get?

Any replies are welcome, i'm collecting all info i can get. Thank you.

You don't have apt-get yet so I wouldn't worry about that. Use Yast to search for some of those unmet dependencies and try to install from there. My best guess is that there are probably a lot of developer libs and packages that come with suse that you need to install. When you get your dependencies taken care of with yast, then install the apt4rpm package.

No, dependancy issues come up when i try to install apt-get, everything is fine with SuSe itself, all dependancies are met.

I'm using 9.0 but I've just installed apt4rpm and then done a full kde upgrade with no problems.
I only installed apt-libs-0.5, lua-5.0 & apt-0.5 (in your case, the i386 rpms) in that order using Konq to download each file and yast to install, and it didnt flag any dependancy failures.
