    I get this error and it’s not anything found on search to solve it.

    Error: Unknown repo: 'epel-testing'

    I already have rpmbuild on my fedora. what’s gonna happen if I don’t enable epel-testing and skip the “yum –enablerepo=epel-testing install rpmrebuild”?

    Thanks a lot…
    conversion is possible, but version of libraries are very important for installation of converted packages

    • @Jalal,
      Yes – that is a possibility, but most libraries (if not all) that are required to run a program precompiled in a .deb or .rpm package are available for the other package format in the repositories. At least that has been my experience so far.
