there is no apt-rpm. just a tool called redhat-config-packages

u need to resolve the dependies the hard way. try install xine, take note of the required file, and do something like this:

rpm --redhatprovides fiilename_of_required file

then look for the package in the RHL disks. if it is not there, go to http:/ or at the xine deps should be posted there.

You can install apt-get for rpmīs (called apt-get not apt-rpm) you can get it at

And donīt forget too install synaptic, a nice frontend for apt:
