I installed cvs from software manager by placing the OS dvd. But still getting the same error. Well i dont understand the concept of i386, i586 architectures..Well is there anything to do with 32 bit or 64 bit and all.
Because my system is 32 bit and i dont know if i586 refer to 64 bit and thats the problem or not ?

Oh this is really annoying now. Wel i got the package kdesdk3-3.3.5 but when i try to install it gives me error i.e
There are no installable provider of kdelibs3>=3,5,6 for kdesdk 3-3.5.6-3.i586

Now where to get this from ?

And once again i tried to install kdevlop compiler without installing kdesdk and i got some other failed message i.e

Resolvable id 56980 does not exist.

Any idea m8s....

Thanks

x86 is generic Intel and i386, i586 are shorthand for specfic CPUs.
These are all 32 bit processors. In a nutshell:
i386 - 80386
i486 - 80486.
i586 - Pentium
i686 - Pentium MMX

Any code compiled for a i386 will work on later processors but not the reverse i.e. i586 compiled code will not work on 486 and earlier CPUs.

Your system is i686. Most 32-bit CPU's are, since Pentium PRO. Exept for AMD-K6, some VIA and Geode processors which are i586.

In doubt, use i386, it's sure to be OK.

Long time I didn't use SuSE, but ain't there an option for it to resolve deps ?

i386 is a kind of generic stuff, that works for everything above i386 (and Celeron is high above a 386 ) so you should use it until you are sure of what you do (in fact, for a Celeron I'm almost sure i586 will work)

Do you run Gnome or KDE ? Do you want to develop graphical applications ? (the choice of the IDE is important if you want to ...)

Personnaly, I use Code::Blocks, which also runs on Windows, but you have to build it yourself (it's not difficult, but newbies usually don't like to build stuffs ... If you want, just ask )

Because my first CPU was a 286 and I have upgraded since then.

"uname -a" might show you the platform (i386, i586, etc) as well.

See also http://www.kde.org/download/ for download of KDE SDK.
A quick Google search took me to http://www.kdevelop.org/index.html?f...uirements.html, which seems to be the website of KDevelop.
It lists all requirements and URLs where you can download them, so should be interesting for you.

http://developer.kde.org/tools/ might be worthwhile too.

Yeh after entering this command i can see something like "i686 i686 i386" (i assume its i686 only but dont knw why i386 was also written )
I dont have any problem in using any compiler as i have not used any till now. Basically i want to write providers for openWBEM in C++. so its programming for back end kind of thing, front end browser is already developed in java.

Is there any other compiler or code::bloacks which i could install without much hastles. I basically want to spend my time in coding rather then wasting my time in just installing the right compiler.

I dont know what is libcvsservice.so.0 as this time i am getting error about not having install provider for libcvsservice.so.0. Every time it gives new problem.

I think ill try for some other compiler...Any recommendation ?

I cannot believe SuSE package management is so clumsy. Usually there are online repositories, using these you can update/upgrade everything and install new software. Is it different with SuSE?

No actually i dont have internet connection on that system. So everytime i have to download the package from another machine and then install it over sles.
So which is now giving me a heading now.
I have installed all the pre-requisite mentioned in Kdevlop site but still having problem.

Otherwise SuSE helped out in many previous problems which i was facing with Fedora.

I'd recommend connecting it to the internet [temporarily] and do a full online update/upgrade before installing. This way you can avoid version conflicts and up-to-date software runs better because it is tested against newer components/libraries.
