start with tar -zxvf gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c.tar.gz

then start reading. get used to reading; people write things about the install process for a reason.

I dont know how Suse works, Im running Fedora Core2. This is the way I installed
open the terminal
tar -xvzf gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c.tar.gz
this will create a directory for gtk-gnutella(probably gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c). To be sure, after you uncompress the tarball, check to see what directory was created. The next step is to change directory . For example if after umcompressing the tarball , the gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c is created, then the command is

cd gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c

the next commands are
./configure
make
su
password
make install
that normally works. Good luck and if you have any questions, post them here so we can help you

Did you install the development libraries when you installed your distro? Or to be more specific, have you got make, autoconf, automake and gcc installed? Also, 0.92.1 is quite an old version of Gtk Gnutella, why don't you try 0.94? The configure script has a capital C now so don't forget to use ./Configure

yes, i installed the development libraries.
how do i make sure if i got those make, autoconf, automake and gcc?
when i type ./Configure it does'nt work.. see below. i think it's in lowercase.

c0d3-z3r0@linux:~/gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c/gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c> ./Configure
bash: ./Configure: No such file or directory
c0d3-z3r0@linux:~/gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c/gtk-gnutella-0.92.1c>

you won't get far without make/gcc... You might have the libraries, but you are missing the compiler...

pull out your distro CDs again, or get online -- you said you were running FC2 now?

try:
yum install gcc
etc.

reference your /etc/yum.conf (or wherever) file and look on the servers to get a clue as to what the actual files are called.
