I have created a debian package for Ubuntu (Hardy, 8.04.1) by converting the rpm with alien. I've tested it on a naive system (i.e. NEURON wasn't previously installed) which worked without any obvious problems. I would be happy to share the Debian package if anyone has some 4.2 MB of web space to donate.
Otherwise, here is how to create and install a debian package yourself:
Code: Select all
$ sudo apt-get install alien $ wget --no-check-certificate https://www.neuron.yale.edu/ftp/neuron/versions/v6.2/nrn-6.2.i686.rpm $ sudo alien nrn-6.2.i686.rpm $ sudo gdebi nrn_6.2-1_i386.deb
