    That sounds like a terrible idea and a good way to break your system. Why do you want to do that?

    You're also trying to use an opensuse rpm package, which is another good way to try and mess up your system.

    If you haven't already considered it, YUM would probably be a better package tool for you unless there is some reason that you can't use it.

    we can use centos repo from link
    ht tp://

    and can get dpkg*.rpm also dependancies there.
    One more point i want to mension that only conversion from .deb to .rpm by alien package was not much useful in my case.
