If u download the 9.1 personal edition disk, u just burn it 2 a cd , slap the cd in the drive and reboot. However..........
The personal edition CD doesn't have GCC or GLIBc... also, it doesn't have GNOME....
^^ not that this is a prob
If you want to get GCC, (BTW gcc = compiler u need 4 compiling (non-rpm) pakages) u need to add an FTP or HTTP source....
Once you've installed SUSE and are sitting at the desktop, klik the SuSe icon and klik System --> YAsT2. Type ur root password, and klik Add Installation Source.
Now, go to The SuSe Mirror List
and pick a server nearest 2 u...
After this, type in the part until it says /pub or whatever under "server name".
After that, type the part after the server name.
If you are using the mirror in tenessee,
would be the server name
and the directory would be
After this, clik "Add" and u should be back to the YaST menu. Click "Add / Remove packages" and search for GCC
Install GCC by checking it in the left side,
and do the same for GlibC, and CPP, by typing the respective name in the upper-left corner
SuSe is a great distribution, and Linux is a Great OS. YaST, the installer and "control panel" , is an excellent tool for linux n00bs.
I wish you luck on this
