I've installed Suse 9.0 on my laptop. All seems well enough. However, I wanted to install a few extras, as you would
Anyway, it seems as thought the rpm facility doesn't work, not even on rpm's from Suse's own ftp site. When I either rpm -iv or try from Suse's YaST installer, it looks like it's about to install, but then just simply doesn't! No stalls, pauses. If it's in the command line, then it simply acts as if it's done something and shows the command line again (no feedback with the -v verbose mode set), and no installation if queried.
I'm trying to get GCC installed. Can't do it with the rpm as per the reasons above, and don't know where to start concerning compiling it without a subsequent compiler to compile it with!!
Any help much appreciated. Thnx!
[EDIT]: Forgot to add that YaST doesn't seem to be able to update or install from the Suse update site either. My internet connection is fine and other services are running okay over it. May be of some relavence?
