"In this short tutorial I will show how to install and use
Debian's package manager apt on various rpm-based distributions
like Fedora, Mandrake (or Mandriva, they changed their name...),
RedHat, SUSE, and Yellow Dog Linux. apt for rpm is also known as
apt4rpm, or aptrpm.
"Why do I want to use apt instead of rpm? The answer is easy:
apt cares much better for package dependencies than rpm (apt
resolves all dependencies by itself!) and saves me a lot of trouble
and time. It lets me install, remove or upgrade packages with just
a single command, and I can even update my whole Linux distribution
to a new release...!"
