    if it's in .rpm,ie for RH/Suse,get a package called alien install it.then
    Code:
    prakash@etch:~$ alien --to-deb foobar.rpm
    
    for packages from source,run first steps as same like .configure,make.then run
    Code:
    checkinstall -D

    If you are talking about MAKING .deb files from scratch, this will help you

    But I think not... dunno, your question seems like you were asking that. Else the above answer is for you but it isnt always recommended to install stuff via rpm on deb systems.

    Sorry, same timestamp.

    Tell me, what do you need to install ? If its a gz/archive package, just extract, run the sh files and do a make install. What are you trying to install mate ? :)
