from .deb to .rpm

Hi all,
i'm trying to install WineX but it seems that it requires a package : x-window-system-dev
I searched the web for it but i found only .deb files or ppl who got this package from "apt-get install x-window-system-dev" , since i have fedora 1 so i haven't apt-get, how can i install this package?
I tried yum and up2date but i found no results using the default servers, i just found a .deb from the web and i uploaded it here

I tried alien (without installing it) to convert this file to .rpm and i got this:

[root@localhost alien]# ./ -r x-window-system-dev_4.3.0.dfsg.1-1_i386.deb
Package build failed. Here's the log of the command (cd x-window-system-dev-4.3.0.dfsg.1; rpmbuild -bb  x-window-system-dev-4.3.0.dfsg.1-2.spec):
Processing files: x-window-system-dev-4.3.0.dfsg.1-2
Requires(rpmlib): rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1 rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files /home/sevenn/alien/x-window-system-dev-4.3.0.dfsg.1
error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:

RPM build errors:
    Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:
[root@localhost alien]#
Now, i'm desperate, can't someone convert for me this file and send me to sevenn AT email DOT it ? Or tell me a way to get it from YUM or up2date?
pleeaase help!!!
