Can rpm packages from other linux distribution be used on Debian?
Our product is base on redhat,I will porting it to Debian,but in this
system,many procedure depend redhat rpms,for example:
At the start,I wanted to try install these rpm packages(from redhat) On
debian,but I found that thers is a lot work to do,some rpm packages even can't
be installed on it.(perhaps these rpms packages from redhat can't be used on
debian at all).I think 2 ways to settle this problem,But I am not sure these
ways is doable,and I wish to get some advices about it.these problem are:
1. Use a certain tool to translate these packages(glibc*.rpm..) from redhat
to rpm packages that can be used on debian.Is there such tools exist on
2. On Debian,after I install rpm,rpm DB and deb DB exist,Can I make some
mapping bettwen betwwen rpm DB and deb DB? when I run rpm command,the OS will
invoke debian DB.for example:
# rpm -qv gcc
package gcc is not installed
#dpkg -l |grep gcc
ii gcc-3.0 3.0.4-7 The GNU C compiler.
this means gcc*rpm isn't installed but gcc*deb is installed on debian. after I
make this mapping,I can use rpm to access deb DB.
# rpm -qv gcc
if this way is feasible,How to do it?
I am a new debian user,not too familiar with this OS, If above ways are
impossible,is thers other ways to attain my purpose?
