Recommended Posts

cheers to Enigma for finding it !






once downloaded (if from here) do


[anyweb@localhost ~]$ mv fcr3-apt-get_rename_to_.rpm_.zip fcr3-apt.rpm


then login as root (su -) and rpm -ivh fcr3-apt.rpm

apt is a package mangement tool that was developed by debian. It has been ported for rpms. It allows you to install a rpm package and then it will figure out what other rpms are need and auto install those so you don't have to install all the depandancies yourself.


Its also a great way to keep your system updated with current rpm's

needed to fix my apt-get cuz it was screwed so i found this thread. BUT it would appear microsoft has bought the link that flukex put up. i found it elsewhere just wanted to warn everyone that the link will take you to an MS sight and not to an apt-get rpm.

peace out, tek
