I've been using RPM for a long time - built my own packages and installed Linux with nothing but the RPMs to do it with.
However, now that I'm using Ubuntu and Linux Mint regularly, I want to learn more about dpkg but don't know where to start.
Particularly, I find myself missing commands like:
- rpm --queryformat="..." (query database for data and print in user-defined format)
- rpm --whatrequires (find out what requires a package)
- rpm -qV (verify all files on the filesystem)
And there are more. Where can I find the best translator?
UPDATE: I've located two that I didn't know about when I wrote this question. One is APT and RPM Packager Lookup Tables from J. P. Vossen. The other is from Ubuntu and is called Switching To Ubuntu From Linux Red Hat Enterprise Linux And Fedora. Both pages are quite good.
