Installing progams in Suse 9.1 Professional


I'm trying to install a couple of programs that I downloaded for Linux. I am using Suse 9.1 Professional. One of the programs is an MP3 encoding program, LAME, and the other is a media player. I am new to Linux and Suse, and I was hoping that somebody out there could provide a walkthrough or something on how do install these programs. Also they are in the format of tar.gz. Thanks in advance.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=45094 - has a lot of installation information.

SuSE is an rpm based distro - you would be better of using those to install. Also, I think those packages should be available in YAST.

No probs - if you bought the box set, I would definitely recommend reading through the enclosed manuals. They are a good example of how computer manuals should be done.

Oh, and I forgot earlier, Welcome to LQ
