Hi. I have a problem trying to install drivers for my Brother FAX-2820. I had manage to install the drivers on my Ubuntu but I don't know how to do it on Gentoo without destroying everything! :)

The Brother website provides .deb and .rpm files but not the source.

Do you think that I should try to install them by converting them into .tar.gz with the deb2targz utility that is at the portage???
Can there be irreversible damage to my system?

Do you suggest something different?

I am stuck. Is there any other way to make my printer to work??

Thank you,
Manos

how about installing it via rpm ?

rpm -ivh --nodeps *.rpm

works best for me ;)
