Thnks for teaching me, how to fish - while converting debs and rpms to tczs !
This will be helpful to me a lot whenever I need some older versions of a
package or a very recent version - which is not available in the repo.
By the way - while doing this rpm2tcz conversion, I got this permision
tc@box:~/d1$ rpm2cpio ../tar-1.13.19-4.i386.rpm | cpio -id
cpio: cannot create symlink from ./bin/gtar to tar: Operation not permitted
( I tried the same command pre-pending `sudo` to it, but the same error. I
do not know, why ! ) But anyhow, the resultant tcz was working OK !
Then I tried something more bigger, converted following (older, stock rpms
from the RH CD):
And frankly, I was NOT expecting any success, but again the resultant tczs
are working seamlessly OK !
Thouhgt, I should give the success-feedback to you - in anticipation ! So if
any newbees are interested in this rpm2tcz conversion - this may be helpful
( My next target is experimenting with Firefox and Xorg 7.5 ...) :|))
Thnks again !
