Yes,I think so.but our procedure depend rpm format,and I found that it can't find files it need in deb DB,I had been tried to install it on debian,
    #rpm -ivh myproduct-xxx-xx.rpm
the program will prompt: myproduct need perl >5.6, and the bash must be installed
In fact,the 2 debian packages has been installed,I think rpm command will read info from only rpm DB on debian.(If make myproduct-xxx-xx.rpm to deb format,I think more codes need be fixed,this proccess is complex,but I hadn't tried this way yet,I should try it tomorrow.)
