I dread ever trying to find anything on the Suse/Novell website. It

current software such as Mozilla 1.7.5 and OpenOffice 1.1.4

By far the easist way to do all this is to install apt4rpm - http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm


Thanks for the link.

I'm not sure I want to invest time in learning how to use another layer of dependency on more developers arranging things for me.

What I'd like is a system that isn't so dependent on customizations to packages that if you install the vanilla, the system breaks.

Perhaps that means Slackware.


Good day!
