Libranet installs RPM's after a trivial setup: mkdir /var/lib/rpm, then
It's probably the same for generic Debian once the RPM suport packages
Some apps, e.g. Applix 5.0 and StarOffice 8, expect to install in an RPM
There are some workarounds, e.g. alien, but I have no major problems
installing these with the normal installation scripts once RPM support
is set up.
