Can I use the APT package manager on the CentOS5-based RightScale images? If so, how?
RightScale does not officially support APT on the CentOS 5 based images. You may have noticed that "yum install apt" results in "nothing to do." However, you can install it using YUM (centos uses YUM instead of APT). Since it requires downloading from a third party source (RPMforge). Please do so at your own risk.
wget http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
To get started with RightScale, try the Free Edition.
