Red Hat uses Debian packages ? That sounds odd... FC uses RPM, Debian uses
deb packages. The problem with RPM is, as stated by David some time ago,
that a lot of info is missing in RPM that is present in deb. What is more,
it is known that using a lot of packages repositories leads to
incompatibilities and instabilities.
