5 WhitePhoenix...RTFM...It's called a CLI application for a reason. I can't live with out it. RedHat has some usefull little apps that we now can have thanks to Alian.

1 Installed it and it never showed up in the Menu or when clicking on an RPM file. A program is useless if you can’t find it or activate it.

1 After installing the converted files I couldn't find them plus it's cheesy. So I will definitely remove alien asap.

2 Although it works very well I also don't suggest to convert packages. It can cause serious problems in your system when a program depends from others. So just carefully.

1 Only crazy people would try to install foreign packages. Try checkinstall using tar.gz sour archives instead.

4 necessary for me with all the different linux disks at home, if there's something I like on the Fedora or OpenSUSE disk that I want I can install it without downloading the .deb package
