GNuCash 2.0 build for Suse 10.1


I am trying to find a build of GNUCASH 2.0 for Suse 10.1.

I have downloaded the source but have been unable to figure out how to compile the source let alone use the package.

Does anyone have a site where I can download a Yast or RPM or whatever that will load in Suse 10.1.

Thanks

it's available here:
ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt...S.suser-crauch

but without using apt4suse it will be a nightmare to install all the dependencies

Thanks.

Even with apt I have been unable to resolve all the dependencies to get an install to work.

I am still finding and downloading dependencies and installing. I will post if I am succesful.

I have been unable to get GnuCash 2.0 to install.

I was able to obtain all other dependencies except for the following broken package error message.

Here is command trail of what I did.

linux:/home/lwgreen/MyDownloads # apt-get install gnucash-2.0.1-0.rauch.2.i686.rpm
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Selecting gnucash for 'gnucash-2.0.1-0.rauch.2.i686.rpm'
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gnucash: Depends: libofx.so.2
E: Broken packages

The latest version of libofx I can find is 0.8.2-42.oc2pus.cvs20060826 but this does not satisfy the dependency.

I have also downloaded libofx-0.8.0-2.2.x86_64.rpm and tried to install but get the following apt error

linux:/home/lwgreen/MyDownloads # apt-get install libofx-0.8.0-2.2.x86_64.rpm
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package libofx-0.8.0-2.2.x86_64.rpm

I am not sure how to proceed from here.

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to resolve the package problem with libofx.

Thanks

Thanks,

When I try to install the libofx links I get the following message.

linux:/home/lwgreen/MyDownloads # apt install libofx-0.8.0-2.20060206.4AS.i386.rpm
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
E: Package libofx-0.8.0-2.20060206.4AS.i386.rpm is a virtual package with no good providers.

Same for libofx-0.8.0-2.20060206.4AS.i686.rpm

Same for libofx-0.8.0-2.20060206.4AS.athlon.rpm

I have downloaded libofx-0.8.2.tar from the site you suggested but have no idea how to use it? I cannot find an rpm or similar install.

Thanks

unpack it with ark (right click choose extract,extract here.

from the command line cd to the directory that was just unpacked. read the readme or install files for instructions, it's usually ./configure, make, make install. most likely you don't have the compiler and development libraries installed (suse doesn't install them by default) so you will have to install them first

Thanks for all your help,

I have never compiled on Linux I think I will wait until GnuCash 2.0 is in a useable state without compiling.
