Alien not installing on F15


Hello all

I'm trying to install alien on Fedora 15 and I've "Google-ed" and yet no luck.
I also found a repository for alien on fedorapeople.org and yet no luck
It says that there are some broken deps and no thing fixed
I've followed those deps and not
If anyone has an idea please help

Isn't alien used to convert rpm into deb? why would you want to do that on a distro that already uses rpm's?

Alien : Easy to install from source
http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/pool...en_8.81.tar.gz

First : # yum install perl-devel

And : cd alien/ && perl Makefile.PL && make ; su ; make install

.
