Alien-GUI: an useful software tool to grafically convert deb and tar packages to RPM

Today, in our Linux Page (in Spanish) we added a brief news about Alien-GUI which is an interesting software developed to grafically (and automatically) convert tar, deb in RPM. As you already know, RPM is the package manager used to install software on different Linux system as (but not only) Mandriva, Fedora, Red Hat and Suse. Before installing Alien GUI, it is necessary to install Alien directly from Synaptics Package Manager (System – Administration). Alien GUi is very simple to use thanks to its intuitive graphic interface and it passed our test when we use it on a Mandriva. To sum up Alien Gui is a useful tool that sometimes could help all us to fastly solve some package compatibility problems in just few clicks. Recommended! AddThis mp3 link

This short manual (yes it is a manual because we included also the instructions to create: gz, bz2, tar.gz, tar.bz2, zip, lha, arj, zoo, rar files) is short but very clear and easy to use. We really hope you find our post useful. Please, let us know! AddThis
