Posted by cbagger01 on July 22 2004,23:21If the package is an RPM, you can install the "alien" program and use it to convert the RPM into a DEB file.
The DEB file can then be installed into DSL or any other Debian-based distribution.
Now whether the Lexmark driver will actually work is a totally different issue.
