Apt for RPM is a dead technology ... The person who did apt is now doing


Smart PM works with yum repos :)


To answer your original question: No, you can't.

Apt does not work with architectures that can have multiple libraries
(aka. Multi-Lib arches).

A Multi-Lib arch is one that might have the same packages installed for
more than one glibc and can run packages from more than one arch.  An
example is the x86_64 arch .. it also runs i386 packages.  SPARC also
can be Multi-Lib, so there is no apt repo for it on CentOS.

The only distro where we build and apt repo is i386.
