What is an RPM file?
An RPM file is an installation package originally developed for the Red Hat Linux operating system, but now used by many other Linux distributions as well. RPM files are commonly used for installing programs on Linux systems.
RPM files can be converted to other formats, such as .DEB files, using a Debian program called Alien. The following Alien command converts the file package_name.rpm into a new file package_name.deb:
alien <options> package_name.rpm
