View Full Version : [ubuntu] RPM to DEB conversion through Alien not working

January 14th, 2011, 05:04 AM
I'm not sure why this is happening, but if anyone knows about Alien and converting .rpm to .deb packages, it would be much obliged:

aurora@Aurora-Systems:~/Downloads$ chmod 755 range-2.2.10-1.i586.rpm
aurora@Aurora-Systems:~/Downloads$ sudo alien -i range-2.2.10-1.i586.rpm
[sudo] password for aurora:
dpkg --no-force-overwrite -i range_2.2.11-2_i386.deb
dpkg: error processing range_2.2.11-2_i386.deb (--install):
cannot access archive: No such file or directory
Errors were encountered while processing:
Unable to install at /usr/share/perl5/Alien/Package/Deb.pm line 92, <GETPERMS> line 426.
find range-2.2.11 -type d -exec chmod 755 {} ;
rm -rf range-2.2.11
