if you installed NON suse prebuilt programs you might have installed INCOMPATIBLE versions of programs
that IS A big problem with using source code builds
random prebuilt software
Suse Enterprise Linux Server 11(SELS 11 sp 1) is a non free Server os
so you DO have the required support contract with Novell ???? right ???
the NON novell provided software might be causing a problem
if this is a NEW install
it will be faster to just reinstall the OS
otherwise a long and lengthy process of "debugging" it and manually removing programs is needed
30 minutes VS. Maybe up to 2 weeks
from your post i am GUESSING here that by "I don't get it running "
that you are referring to an Apache web server stack
that is a VERY complicated thing to get going
what EXACTLY is it you are trying to do ?
install the apache stack and get it up and running?
or something else ?
SELS is not free so you DID buy it ? right
if you are NOT going to pay for SELS-11sp1 then install he free OpenSUSE 12.2
but JUST installing
... and so on ...
will NOT "get a Apache server -- "going"
you might want to start by READING
and reading some more
then REREAD everything you read
-- installing an configuring a server is like taking a collage final exam
TREAT IT AS SUCH and STUDY
the 2.4 docs
the 2.2 docs
then the MySQL DB manuals
