Can debs be used
« on: October 12, 2010, 05:47:14 pm »
Can these be converted or used on this distro? Thanks.

What about apt-get?

You can convert various packages to .tgz with command;
Code: [Select]
alien --to-tgz /path/to/packagefileThis works best with simple programs, I would not use it for important system packages.

The command "slapt-get" is included. It is similar to apt-get, but syntax is different.
