Hi Guys

Basically I use UnRPM all the time and really do think its a shame that it isn't included with puppy as a default application. Oh well anyways whenever I download it from dotpups.de and try to install it, I always get some stupid error and have to remove it from the temp files and manually move it to the correct directories. What a pain. So I just repackage it as a pet package and now it installs painlessly Smile enjoy
ttuuxxx

to use it just open a console in the folder where the package is.
type undeb package-name.deb
or unrpm package-name.rpm
unrpm.pet
Description 
pet

Hey buddy

It actually undeb's and unrpm's packages, what i'm going to do is included with the Gslapt application, so when you install Gslapt you also get undeb unrpm, which is great I think anyways. Smile

Hey Jeff
I needed the sources to add support to a dragNdrop script


I have to have sources for all packages compiled

here is the source code
http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/d/dpkg/dpkg_1.14.29.tar.gz

http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/r/rpm/rpm_4.7.2.orig.tar.gz

I know someone else will need it

Joe

Sub_title: unrpm folder to download it
 

In which folder should be placed unrpm to work?
How does unrpm work? I downloaded to My-applications folder, but it does't work. Every time I download a new application, there is an error suggesting to use unrpm. Please advice. Thank you.

hi open a terminal and type unrpm and the full path to the file like
unrpm /root/Downloads/Python-2.7.rpm
first open a terminal and type unrpm with a space
just right click any file and click rename, that will give you the full path.
then copy the name and on the terminal window press the middle scroll wheel on the mouse and that will paste it after the text where you made the space.
