Convert .deb to .rpm


hey,

I need someone who can convert a deb package into a rpm package. I could use alien, but something strange on my server won't let me install it.

I need to have these 2 packages converted to rpm.

pure-ftpd-mysql 1.0.21-8 http://packages.debian.org/etch/pure-ftpd-mysql
pure-ftpd-common 1.0.21-8 http://packages.debian.org/etch/pure-ftpd-common


Thanks Nick

Why do you want to convert the packages instead of downloading rpms for your distro? It would probably work, but the native rpms are better anyway?

Right. What's your compelling reason for not getting pure-ftpd-1.0.21-9.fc6.src.rpm from Fedora extras and rebuilding "--with mysql"?

Well, the pure-ftpd-mysql has a special feature that let you select what file types you want to allow (others don't have this).
I'm making a new hosting cp (i need these packages for the free hosting cp, then i will have a premium panel for paied hosting, this one will use the normal pure-ftpd)

(or if someone is using debian, you can always download the source files from the 2 packages, then i can just upload it, configure it and install it ...)

Nice. You explained what you want to do and why but you failed to explain why you can't package it yourself.
