I need suse 8.1 pro cd 2+


I don't know if i am allowed to ask this or not, but if not, then the mods can remove it.

I already have Suse 8.1 pro installed, but I really need the other cd's. Does anyone know how I can get them (yes, other than ordering them - thanks mom! lol)

Or does anyone have them?

Thanks and sarry in advance if I am overstepping anything here.

SuSE doesn't allow iso's to be downloadable, it doesn't violate the GPL as they don't have to provide iso's.
You can do an ftp install no probs.
And yes I know, you really need the iso, but you'll have to buy it.

I already have the first cd installed but obviously when I go to install programs, there are a lot of dependency issues and I don't even have a compiler program so I can install sources.

Nonetheless, I am planning on grabbing it off ebay anyway.

Is there any way I can get the rest of the files from ftp now that I have it up and running?

AFAIK SuSE works with rpm's right? You could install apt4rpm, it's the famous debian apt system for use with rpm. Works really good and can take care of all your depency issues.

That's right. You will need these packages:

apt-howto-1.7.8-3
apt-0.5.4cnc9-1cl
apt4rpm-0.64.3-0
apt-devel-0.5.4cnc9-1cl


Have fun :-)
