Hi All,

I do not have a Debian system, but would like to start installing 
.deb packages. I have converted he tools (dpkg, deselect etc.) using 
alien, and installed them. I think I need some kind of database in 
/var/lib/dpkg to keep track of packages, and receive an error "unable 
to create update files list for package foo: No such file or 
directory" when using "dpkg -i foo". Same kind of error trying 

Could someone please inform me how to get everything configured to be 
able to install .deb packages?

Thank you
