apt-rpm (also known as AptRpm) is a port of the original Debian apt-get (see also: apt) program for an RPM based Linux Distribution.

apt-get originaly only worked on Debian based systems. Apt-rpm does nothing else besides providing the package management, dependency sulving, package retriving funcionality of apt-get to RPM based platforms.

The first distribution that started using it was Conectiva, which sponsored the porting effort. Today, there are some (several?) other distributions using it.

apt-rpm was ported by Alfredo Kojima (also the author of the WindowMaker window manager).
