6.24 Wajig Alien Packages

RedHat is another distribution of GNU/Linux that has a large installed base. Some packages (particularly commercial packages) are available as RedHat packages (with the rpm extension). These can usually be installed in Debian with little effort. The alien package is required to convert the rpm into deb format which can then be installed. This is taken care of by wajig:

  $ wajig rpminstall gmyclient-0.0.91b-1.i386.rpm
