Trying to find and install g++ on SuSe Distro


What more can I say? I'm trying to install g++ on SuSe and I don't even know where to begin. I suppose the compiler and the standard library wouldn't necessarily be packaged together, but I've looked all over and can't seem to find either.

There either seems to be some inactivity or apathy about this post so I'll throw this in there to keep it from becoming lost in obscurity. In any case, I've heard of something called apt-get. Would this be a worthwhile pursuit?

Well, it was only one hour between the original post and your reply. That's not a whole lot of time for the thread to be seen.

SuSE should come with some sort of package manger. I believe I've seen the name "Yast" thrown about. Try looking around in it (if there's a GUI interface). I would bet a very large sum of money that all the necessary packages/files are on your install CDs. Look for "development" packages or the like.

Yes but there was plenty of time for it to be buried in the morass of all the others. I'm a total linux n00b, but that's what I'm here to rectify. I'm familliar with YaST. Had to use it to fix grub for a dual boot, but I hadn't quite picked up on exactly what it was until now. I'm currently running the YaST update for the first time. Hopefully it will include the development packages. :-D

Well I ran the updates and there was stuff for c++ but it didn't quite magically make everything right. Once again () I'm doing this for a class. I'm building a linux lab and we need to have the gcc and g++ commands available. I'm also trying to figure out how to authenticate users against server 2003 LDAP, anybody know of any good tutorials?

If I'm thinking correctly, an update will only affect packages you already have installed. In other words, if you didn't have gcc installed previously, then the update routine would probably skip downloading an updated gcc. I'm still very confident that Yast has what you need; the appropriate section/option is there, I'm sure, but it might require some digging. You could also search your install CDs. All the packages are probably stuffed into a single directory. Check to see if there are any with "gcc" in the filename. You also mentione installing apt-get. You can do that too, but it would be the long way around (installing a package manager to avoid the current one on the system). Since you don't have a compiler, you would need to download apt-get as a Suse pre-compiled package, install it, and then use it to get gcc. In either situation, you'll have to use your current package manager (directly installing gcc, or to install apt-get).

Interesting you would mention that. I tried it myself a while back, but never had all the time I needed to get it 100% functional. Here's a link to a thread I started about it: LDAP and NIS
I posted a response that listed some interesting links. Hopefully they'll help.
