Sounds like you are really new to Linux. Make your life easier and try to find the RPM packages you need for SuSE 9.3 and install them via YaST.

Try to find the packages you need from rpm.pbone.net Once you find the packages you need double click them and install using YaST. If you get dependency problems, search for the missing packages.

To make it easiser if you have a bunch of packages, before you install add the directory to YaSTs installation source.

As to compiling from source you need to have the compilers installed. Again use YaST to do this.

jordan-

Please be more specific. Your post was very vague. The procedure you described does not help if you do not have the packeages required to compile installed. SuSE is an RPM based distribution and if you find the right RPM then you don't have to compile anything.

he has the tarball already and i see that he did ./configure, as u know linux is case sensitive, theres his first problem, second if that package wouldnt work then why was he able to find it and download it. but you are right it is an rpm base distro but that command line would work just fine
