Meego uses the RPM Package Manager (like Fedora does) instead of dpkg that Ubuntu uses. So to install software :

yum install yourPackage

please answer me shortly: 1)is MeeGo a Fedora? 2)That means I can't use sudo. How to use root? 3)Can I use soft for Debian? 4)What are the major differences between Fedora and Debian? – Dan Aug 13 '11 at 8:22
sorry, I was in panic ))). It looks like MeeGo is Debian and uses sudo and all other stuff. Still I can't run sudo yum install apt-get – Dan Aug 13 '11 at 8:32
Meego is not a Fedora spin (but Fedora made a spin based on Meego). You can use sudo. You would need to recompile Debian software (most popular software have a .rpm download). You'll need to read on internet for the differences between fedora and Debian (The biggest difference probably is the package systems) – danjjl Aug 13 '11 at 8:36
Meego is not Debian based but has a Linux Kernel so yes sudo works. And no you can't install apt-get (it can't use .deb) – danjjl Aug 13 '11 at 8:38
You should ask your questions here : – danjjl Aug 13 '11 at 8:39

On Meego you can use zypper or yum:

 yum install example   


 zypper install example

sudo yum install apt-get shows there is no package apt-get – Dan Aug 13 '11 at 8:27
I was trying to say that you should use this instead of apt-get. – desgua Aug 13 '11 at 14:20
