Hi S at m,

The only way to convert a .rpm (even a source one) into a .deb is to use 
alien. The other alternative is to build your own .deb from the source. 
If the .deb is just for internal/personal use then you might want to use 
checkinstall to create it, however there are many caveats with 
checkinstall and it may not function correctly.

Thanks Nick
