Converting an .rpm package to a slackware9.1 filetype
ATI's graphics card drivers are in the .rpm format. I am using Slackware 9.1 and I would like to install these new drivers as soon as possible but I don't know how.
I downloaded Alien Extra for slackware 8.1 (its all they had) so I could convert the .rpm to something slackware will like but I don't know how to use it.
Can someone help me out here? Thanks

Run rpm -Uvh rpmfilename.rpm to see what dependancies are required.
Check if you have them and force an install using : rpm -Uvh --nodeps rpmfilename.rpm to install it.
Since you are using Slack, the RPM DB is empty so using the -Uvh will get a screaming result of unresolved dependancies.
I'm also looking for a program that repackes the RPM to package installers used by slack....
Let me know if you find a working app.---[ MS09-99896 - Vulnerability in All MS Windows OS ; Using Windows Could Allow Remote Code Execution. ]---
