You may need to install "make".

Have a search through the Yast software installation/removal tool. If you're missing make incidentally, then you may also need to install quite a bunch of libraries before you can compile from source.

I had a look through YaST and I'm fairly certain its not there. There only things that came up when I clicked search was ndiswrapper and 2 kde libraries.

You may need to connect to one of the mirrors and get an update from there - I'm not sure how much development software Suse has on the first CD (unless you have the whole prof. set ?).

Cheers,

Open up yast and in software you will see a module called "Change source of installation". Load this up.

Add a new FTP source with the server name as "ftp.gwdg.de" and the directory as "linux/suse/ftp.suse.com/suse/i386/9.1"

You could use another mirror here but this one works well for me

Once this has checked the source and added it in yast, go into install and remove software. Search for "make" (The GNU make command). One of these results should be what you are looking for. You are also likely to want packages "gcc", "gcc+". Once these are selected other dependencies such as " libgcc" will be selected.


Hope this is of help



edit: you do need to add the installation source in suse 9.1 personal as for whatever reason they dont include these packages, probs something to do with space i guess

You did have the Suse disk 1 in your E drive at the time, didn't you

If you have a close look at your current installation sources, it's quite likely that your first installation cd is already there - just check that it's still enabled (a tick next to it).

No, thats the error I got trying to connect to the server. I already searched the CD. I only have personal by the way. I'm getting very irritated at this point.

Are you sure that you arent trying to add the source slightly differently or with the quotes around it?

Protocol : FTP

Server name : ftp.gwdg.de

Directory on server : linux/suse/ftp.suse.com/suse/i386/9.1


I just made sure that was correct by adding it again, all went well. Not too sure what you are doing for it not to work
