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

fcr3_apt_get_rename_to_.rpm_.zip

Segmentation fault !! this is not a very good sign, it happend to me along time ago and i had to reinstall everything :(, but you may just be able to remove apt and all its dirs and files then reinstall it ( I hope )

As i alway tell everyone, try using the actual apt released by fedora.. it uses all the mirrors as repositories, and is updated faster then most other apt sources.

 

Apt-get fedora.us

anyweb,

 

add the following line into conf_mime_types.php in the forum root dir

 

"application/x-redhat-package-manager" => array(1,'zip.gif','RPM File'),

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
