    This means you will have to install the packages mentioned in failed dependencies first.

    You can follw the tutorial even without installing and using debian. If you get a line like:

    apt-get install package1 package2 package3

    replace it with:

    yast -i package1 package2 package3

    The SuSe 10 perfect setup howto I've written uses this approach.

    Either you find the 64Bit RPM for apt and the 64Bit RPM repositories or you use yast instaed of apt as i posted above.

    The yast solution might be easier. The howto was written for 32 bit linux.

    Maybe you can install apt-get with yast (at least this works for SuSE 10.0), or you do what Till suggested: use yast instead of apt-get. The result will be the same.

    su93254144:/etc # rpm -ivh
    su93254144:/etc # rpm -ivh

    install apt on suse 9.3/64 bit

    su93254144:/etc/apt # vi sources.list
    # A very basic sources.list file.
    # Remove "base" in case you are behind a slow connection.
    # Fastest repository comes first, with netselect it is possible to determine
    # the fastest repository easily.
    # Visit the server to determine which apt components are provided.
    rpm SuSE/9.3-x86_64 update security rpmkeys
    rpm SuSE/9.3-x86_64 update security rpmkeys

    # The list with all available components can be found at:
    # Some components provide experimental software, select wisely!

    # Consult the link above if you want to include uri's for src rp

    su93254144:/etc/apt # apt-get update
    apt-get: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Then I suggest it's best to use yast instead of apt-get on SuSE 9.3 64-bit.

    after failure of the apt-get installation, i tried with yast -i packgeone command.
    Then i received this kind of error. I think this is because of apt-get mising library. please help me to work the yast -i packge command .

    when i enter yast -i packgename

    system said some system libries are missed . How do i resolve this and work with yast - i ?

    Do i need to uninstall the apt-get ? if so pls let me know the steps to uninstall the asp-get ?

    Thx in advance,

    Please try
    instead of
    yast -i <package name>

    to install a package ,
    we need to use "yast -i packagename" , Don't we?

    or how can we use only "yast " to install a packageone .

    pop up the "Yast Control Centre " .

    and when i went to the ,

    Software ----> Install and Remove Software .

    Result---> same as previous . missing library files screen was displayed .

    Then I recommend to do a full re-install of the system. It seems to be really messed up!
