Carl,

Thanks for the help - I should have mentioned that I have opensuse 10.0

I downloaded install-apt4suse and installed it OK. However, when I try to use it I get this error:

Do I just need to create a folder called pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/10.0-i386/RPMS ?


Linux:/home/nathan # install-apt4suse
/usr/bin/install-apt4suse: line 144: [: missing `]'
/usr/bin/install-apt4suse: line 144: 10.1: command not found
Setup apt for SuSE Linux 10.0 on i386...

Downloading apt and apt-libs packages...

unlink: No such file or directory
No such directory `pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/10.0-i386/RPMS.'.

Done.
error: File not found by glob: /tmp/apt-*
