Hi,The sipp package in EPEL is too old so I have solved installing it from source. The same thing for VLC: I need a version >= 1.0 but in the repository there is version 0.9.9a.

I have 12.4, and I have a package that is a Recursive Package Manager (rpm). I need to install it. There is also a Fedora version of the package, but its the same thing. When extracting the package, I have no idea where it goes. I have also tyred the "Alien" program in the terminal, but it didn't really seem to work, unless the program extracts it into an unknown location.
Suppose I have an installer program or source tarball for some program I want to install. (There is no Debian package available.) First I want to create a .deb package out of it, in order to be able to cleanly remove the installed program in the future (see Uninstalling application built from source, If I build a package from source how can I uninstall or remove completely?).
