Revolution R Enterprise is available as a red-hat rpm file. Normally I would use
alien to install an rpm file as explained in another more generic question about installing rpms , but the instructions for installing this package have an
install.py file that I am supposed to execute.
./install.py, I get the following instructions:
rpm: please use alien to install rpm packages on Debian, if you are really sure use --force-debian switch. See README.Debian for more details.
There is no
README.Debian file in the directory, and although I am not proficient in python, I can tell that there are at least four different directories with *rpm files in them.
Has anyone had success with this? If possible, I'd prefer to install the Enterprise version instead of community version in the Ubuntu repository so that I can test it out.
