Hi All,

I used this application for a long time.
It's work well for my Debian Dell servers. It used Alien to convert rpm packages to deb packages.

Unfortunately, now a lot of rpm packages have a version number which doesn't  start with a number. So Alien can't convert them to debian packages (Debian need version number of a package starting with a number).

I can't now update some firmware like PERC, .... with update_firmware -y command.

*Can Dell packagers use version number of their packa**ges starting with a number.**
**It will be very **useful for Debian users.

**We will very grateful f**or that. Thanks in advance.*

Sorry for my poor English.
