Convert deb package to rpm

DEB packages are the installers for Debian and Ubuntu like RPM for Linux.

Converting of  DEB to RPM is simple one step  process with  “alien” command in Ubuntu/Debain, for this one first we need to install alien.

Install alien command on Debian / Ubuntu

To install alien package you need root privilege.

# apt-get install alien

Once the alien package is installed we can start the converting of DEB to RPM.

# alien your-DEB-to-convert.deb

your-DEB-to-convert.rpm generated

Now you can start the installation of the RPM.
