I need to install .rpm package in Kali linux.
But shows command not found error.
i tried using with sudo but didn't help.
Does kali supports .rpm files? How can i install .rpm on Kali linux?
RPM packages are precompiled and built for
Red Hat Based Linux Distribution and can be installed only using
Zypper and RPM based package managers.
Since Kali Linux is based on Debian you can not install RPM packages directly using
dpkg package managers.
However, you can try a utility called Alien which can convert one package format into other but this doesn't mean every RPM will work since packages link to another packages for dependencies and this can cause troubles.
To install Alien and necessary package, run this command
$ sudo apt-get install alien dpkg-dev debhelper build-essential
To convert a package from RPM to debian format, use this command:
$ sudo alien packagename.rpm
To install the package:
$ sudo dpkg -i packagename.deb
