I have used ubuntu for a long time, and have collected a lot of Ubuntu
.deb packages which I may need for future installs. Most of these are grabbed from outdated or obsolete PPAs or from outside official sources.
I have a old system lying around, too old to run Ubuntu, and I am mulling installing Debian Squeeze with LDXE or something to convert it into a file/print server.
I know it is possible to install Ubuntu debs on Debian, but some will simply not install because of dependencies. Is there a easy way to install Ubuntu debs on Debian? How can I determine which will safely install and which have the potential to break the system? Is there a script for this?
