Here’s a quick wrap up of how to install APT for RPM:
For SUSE 9.2, install apt4rpm SuSE packages by executing the following command from a shell (as root):
rpm –install -hv ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/apt4rpm/9.2/apt{-libs,}-0.5.15cnc6-rb.suse092.6.i586.rpm
For SuSE 9.1, run the following command:
rpm –install -hv ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/apt4rpm/9.1/apt{-libs,}-0.5.15cnc6-0.suse091.rb.5.i586.rpm
For SuSE 9.0, run the following command:
rpm –install -hv ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/apt4rpm/9.0/apt{-libs,}-0.5.15cnc6-rb5.i586.rpm
For SuSE 8.2, run the following command:
rpm –install -hv ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/8.2-i386/RPMS.suser-rbos/apt{-libs,}-0.5.5cnc6-rb3.i386.rpm
Optionally, if you want a nice GUI for apt, install synaptic (SUSE 9.2):
rpm –install ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/apt4rpm/9.2/synaptic-0.55.3-0.suse092.rb1.i586.rpm

Use this one for SuSE 9.1:
rpm –install ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/apt4rpm/9.1/synaptic-0.53-0.suse091.rb.1.i586.rpm

Use this one for SuSE 9.0:
rpm –install ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt4rpm/9.0/synaptic-0.53-rb1.i586.rpm
And this one for SuSE 8.2:
rpm –install ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/9.0-i386/RPMS.suser-rbos/synaptic-0.44-rb1.i386.rpm
Initialize APT and check your system’s consistency by executing the following command as root:
apt-get check
Once you’ve got APT for RPM up and running, here’s how to use my APT repository:
Import the RPM signing key: rpm –import http://linux01.gwdg.de/~pbleser/guru-rpm.asc
As root, edit the file named /etc/apt/sources.list
In that file you’ll find a line like this:
# rpm ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/ SuSE/9.2-i386 update security
Remove the comment sign (#) in front of the line to activate that source, like this:
rpm ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/ SuSE/9.2-i386 update security
And finally, add the “suser-guru” module at the end of that line:
rpm ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/ SuSE/9.2-i386 update security suser-guru
(note: replace “9.2-i386” by “9.1-i386”, “9.0-i386” or “8.2-i386” if you’re using SuSE 9.1, 9.0 or 8.2 respectively)
Update the APT cache by executing the following command as root:
apt-get update

You’ll probably want to do that on a regular basis, as it is required to see new packages that have been added to APT repositories since your last “update”.
If you want to build from source RPMs, also add the following line:
rpm-src ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/ SuSE/9.2-i386 suser-guru
(note: replace “9.2-i386” by “9.1-i386”, “9.0-i386” or “8.2-i386” if you’re using SuSE 9.1, 9.0 or 8.2 respectively)
Once you’ve done all the above, as an example, here’s how to install or update “gaim” to its latest version:
apt-get install gaim
