apt-rpm upgrade

Post by dishawjp » Wed Mar 03, 2004 2:52 pm

Hi All,

Not too sure that this is the proper forum for this, but since I got my pointer to it fom the fedora core mail list, I thought I'd put it here.

There have been some major upgrades to apt-rpm including adding the ability to resolve dependencies from .rpm files instaled from local drives or from the 'net. They've also added an interactive apt shell.

Pretty neat stuff! You can read about it here if interested.
