I feel like an idiot posting this but I'm not sure what else to do...
I have Suse 9.0 and have really loved it (Lindows sucks but mainly because it is TO user-friendly). Anyway I LOVE Suse so far but I have been trying to install a few semi popular programs that turn into a complete nightmare...
1. VOCP If you haven't heard of it it's voicemail for linux...anyway I download an rpm from rpmsearch (the one that say Mandrake 9.2 or 9.1 since there isn't a Suse designated one) and it launches through Yast... It proceeds to tell me I need all these files...so I download another 20 files and each of those files need another 5 or 6 files!
This goes on like this for 4 or 5 hours and I make a little leeway, then, I get to a file that I cannot find on the net.
2. Mplayer...same thing happens. It took me 2 hours between finding files and installing the files' files!
IS THERE AND EASIER (and I know, lazier) WAY????
I tried to install the apt-get thing for Suse and GUESS WHAT??????? IT NEEDS MORE FILES (a LOT of files!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Please help me. I know what a lot of you are thinking...lazy ass. But the thing is I was an expert Windo$ user and administrator but I am the Forrest Gump of Linux. I want to learn so badly but there is something about command line stuff that makes my eyes glaze over.
