Beim kompilieren darauf achten, das die RPM-Option beim ./configure angegeben wird, der default ist nämlich Debian
./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3 --with-rpm
If you're a Debian user, and you don't like much the graphical tools like aptitude or dselect, then it's likely you use apt-cache a lot. And you know how it can be painful to search for a package through many MANY "apt-cache search foo" and "apt-cache show bar" lines
The apt ioslave gives the ability to use apt-cache functionalities, as well as dpkg -S (searches the package containing a file) and dpkg -L (list the files in a package) - and the related functions in rpm - into Konqueror, and provides hypertext which makes browsing all this stuff easier :
* apt:/search?search expression
All URLs that don't match the above formats, including apt:/, show a page with a HTML query form. The same query form is showed at the bottom of every page generated by the ioslave. It shows also a form for accessing packages.debian.org (if dpkg is used) or rpmfind.net (for apt-rpm users).
