sopcast on gutsy

To celebrate liverpool winning today[not yet but I'm so sure :D],this post will show you how to watch tv on gutsy. First goto sopcast download page and get these two rpm files, qsopcast-0.3.5-2mgc.i686.rpm and sp-sc-1.0.2-1mgc.i686.rpm.
Then to convert rpm packages to deb we need alien

pnix@pnix-a7n:sopcast$ sudo aptitude install alien
[sudo] password for pnix:

now convert them to deb packages and install
pnix@pnix-a7n:sopcast$ ls
qsopcast-0.3.5-2mgc.i686.rpm sp-sc-1.0.2-1mgc.i686.rpm
pnix@pnix-a7n:sopcast$ sudo alien -k *
