Constant errors during "make" or "make install" with SUSE 10.1 Alpha 4


I'm currently using the latest development build of SUSE (10.1 A4) and about 3 times out of four when I use "make" when trying to install a program it returns an error. If that doesn't return an error, "make install" most likey will. Yes, during the "make install" I am always logged in as root.

My understanding of this building from source process is that I am essentially using a configuration script (packaged with the software) to generate a "makefile" which is essentially my program (?) then I just use that same module (make) to install the program. Am I right on this?

Well, my real question here is, do I blame the coders of the software, the unstable nature of the distribution I am using or myself for these errors? For the most part they appear to be errors within the code. For example:
Code:
BitTorrentDownload.cpp:353:2: warning: #warning TODO try next peer
../include/BitTorrent.h:70: error: extra qualification ‘BitTorrent::’ on member ‘bt_decode_file’
make[2]: *** [BitTorrentDownload.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/dutch/dls/qtella-0.7.0/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
This occured recently during an (attempted) install of qtella.

Any help is, as usual, greatly appreciated

The alpha builds are meant for developers to play with, so you should expect to find errors, maybe even serious errors. Use SUSE 10.0 if you want something that will work, and wait for the second or third beta of 10.1, when the releases should be closer to the final product.

Well, I'm getting the errors, but I'm fine with that. Honestly this distribution comes with alot of bundled programs and the only thing it's lacking, imho, is a decent gnutella client. Either eDonkey blows or the client bundled with 10.1 does, frankly idc.

I guess I'll wait for the final release or, as you suggested, the third or fourth beta, then update

Get gtk-gnutella. That should compile even on SuSe's god awful development environment.
