SuSE 9.1 personal gcc install woes


I've recently switched from Knoppix(my first linux distro) to SuSE 9.1 personal and i must say im very very impressed with SuSE, however, I'm at my wits end when it comes to the gcc. It's not installed by default and when i try to use YaST to download and install the GCC it says they are already installed and quits, but when i try to cmpile sure 'nuff theres no gcc on my system. I downloaded gcc from thier homepage but as i dont have a compiler i cant compiler the gcc compiler. Anyone have any ideas about how to get this to work, i'm thinking of switching distros as much as i dont want too.

Help please!

same problem,

their gcc is called cpp

the installed c compiler....... but it needs many other stuff.
when u run ./configure , they say somewhere in the INSTALL txt
CC=xx ./configure
i give CC=cpp ./configure

do you have "make" ?
I had it in my first installation, but now I don't have it now.

Hello,

I recognize the problem, i've got suse 9.1 myself for about 3 months now, but only the basics are installed, so you have to install a lot yourself if you want to compile and do some development..

it might be better if you'ld install the rpm.

Go to ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/ftp...9.1/suse/i586/

then you'll see a whole list with programs, search for "gcc" , there are several:

gcc...(C compiler)
gcc-c++ (C++ Compiler)
...

just download and install what you need, for now you only have to download the gcc, but if you ever have to compile a C++ program or java, then it's best to download them too, then you don't have to go back to the ftp everytime to download something

I would go for the SuSE pro install via ftp personally. It has a lot more packages you can use for development than Personal.

Thanks everyone for the replys i'll try the RPM's and see if that does the trick as to 9.1 pro i'd love too but 89 bucks is a bit steep for me atm.

Gkar, i have make but cant configure dunno, its a pickjle thats for sure.

Thanks again everyone.

check out apt-get for suse. it will find the packages AND the dependencies, and install them for you...i'd also suggest installing synaptic, a front-end gui which makes apt-get quite easy to use.

Well if you want their support you can buy it for $89 but you can install it for free via FTP.

how do you go about doing a pro ftp install? google seems to have turned up closely related topics but nothing about an all ftp pro install.

THanks again Corona
