    Don't do that. Use 'alien' to convert the RPM package to a Debian
package and install *that*.

    If you absolutely *MUST* do it, then you'll have to initialize the
RPM database by yourself. Do the following:

    # rpm --initdb

    And you'd be all set. Read up on the rpm manual page, as
well. HTH, HAND.
