I am trying to install the Gramps Genealogy software on my SuSE 9. I couldn't get it installed on 8.2 either.
I am not quite sure what I am missing, but I have all the prerequisite programs listed on the site. I have tried both Gnome and KDE desktops, but the RPM just won't go.
I am not really sure if RPMs are usable on different distros. I downloaded a RPM386, a RPM586, and the tar.gz file. I don't know which one will work on my SuSE, but none of the above have worked.
