RPM Sources

Hello all,

I'm used to using the apt-get installer for debian and new to rpms. Has anyone got any good sources or know a place I can look for them? The machine i'm using is running SuSE 9.1 and i'd rather more current package online.

Alternatively, just use apt for SuSE?

That's we do at RimuHosting for our Fedora, RH9 and Whitebox Linux distros. You get to use the commands you're familiar with. The apt install will automatically set you up pointing to the base RPM repositories. And you can easily keep your system up to date.
