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.
