 SAP database on Linux

I was wondering if anyone has had a chance to look at the SAP database that is currently being available to Linux users.
www.sapdb.org for more information

Yes I'll try it out.

I have a question, though, if the download file of the source is already in an rpm format, is there a way of "making" it into a .tar.gz format.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but is in it that an .rpm is Linux specific installation file?!?! ;^)

rpm's are redhat packages... specific for RH, but you can install the rpm package (ports/packages(sysinstall)). Just install that and rpm -i archive.rpm and i'll be decompressed normally in /usr/src i think.

check for the verbose command of rpm in the man after you installed it, you should be able to find out where it did install the sources.

Slackware has a tool (distributed in tarball) called rpm2tar, or close to that name. It converts the rpm to a basic tar.gz.

If I remember correctly, it has one problem and that is it has the files based off of / directory. Should slove the problem of getting the files without having linux that uses rpm's installed.

Hope this helps
