Exclamation Nightmare help tar.gz


Please help me Everytime I try to install something for tar.gz it doesn't work

For e.g. I try to do make and winges about autoconf.
I try to install gcc, make and perl so I can use make which requires autoconf.
Everything I do with my SuSe 9.1 personal winges for dependency
All of them seem to be related to gnc

Does anyone know where I can get rpms for gnc, make, make install rpms and everything else so I can actually be able to install tar.gz programs whenever I want without probs. Please Help me. I don't want to install debian just to not have tar problems.

Try either:

http://linux01.gwdg.de/~pbleser/

or

http://packman.links2linux.de/

for Suse rpms; they are the best two places that I found when I used Suse. I think GNC is part of a gnome package (not sure which one) from the results that came up while googling. Which if I remember correctly Suse 9.1 presonal doesn't come with Gnome.

What's difference between kde and gnome I know kde more user friendly but gnome more powerful. But does gnome not have as much applications work with it?

The differences between KDE and Gnome are more of a personal preference than anything else. Which is why I think Suse should include both in the personal edition so newbies can try both and see which they like better. Since Personal is geared toward the newer user. Just my 2 cents.

You can set up Packman's site as a source in yast also.

in Yast got to change source; pick add HTTP; Server :"packman.iu-bremen.de ; dir add : suse/9.1

Hope that helps out.
