ok, STOP RIGHT THERE!!!!!!!!

go get these 2 packages - "apt" and "apt-devel" (or whatever it's called similarly)

install them both (rpm -ivh apt-*)

then to install anything, as long as you have a connection, do "apt-get name"

for instance, "apt-get xmms" will install everything you need to get xmms up.

there have been many posts about apt here. you might wanna look at them too.

p.s: you might want to update the /etc/sources.list file after installing those two.

tell me what "rpm -ivh apt-*" gives you. i want to see what you get when you try to install them together (both those files should be in the same directory)

hmm...
i dont know if that message means that you dont have those libs (btw, it must be messy if you donbt have the libs for elf files or the rpm system), or if you need to upgrade to those versions in the error message.

was there a reason (like from ur distro's webpages/README's) that you are using redhat rpm's? and how do you know which version of redhat you have to use (like how did u decide whether u get the rpm for fedora/redhat9/8/7...)?

when i boot my ark linux it comes up that i have a i686 computer and i have readed that i386 shall work to. When coming up searching rpms i have found a rpm package manger on my system so i started to explorer with my new nolage the web after rpms. I find that most of the red hat 9 x rpms uses i386 or i686 rpms. So i tried those and the computer hasent sad you cant use theese acept those darn evil errors but all os has its deflects.

Excuse my bad english

hmm ok. thing is, for every version of redhat (fedora, 9/8/7), ull find i386 packages (which you're right is what you need.)
but you cannot use rpm's from redhat 7 on redhat 8, or redhat 8 on redhat 9 .... which is why they are kept separate, and which is why i asked if you were sure which ones you need.

i just looked up ark linuxs' website, and am not sure if it's debian- or redhat-based.

do this - as root, in a terminal type in
Code:
apt-g
and hit <Tab>.
see if it completes automatically to "apt-get".
