Bonjour,
deb packages are `ar' archives, so, if you really need you can extract them with
the ar x *.deb and then you need to explose the data.tar.gz into / (you must be
in / to do the tar xvfz data.tar.gz).
This should work, but you lose all the pre- post- installation script, and you
should run them manually and you need to check manually the dependencies.


Of corse it is better to find a .rpm package and use it :-)
