Suse Make Command


I cannot get the make or gmake command to work. It says that it is not a valid command. What do I need to do to change this?

Is the make package installed?
Try 'rpm -q make'.

Put the SUSE CD/DVD in your drive,
open YaST->Software->Install and Remove Software,
select "Search" from the "Filter" tab,
type 'make',
and click the box in front of the 'make' entry.

I did the search just like you, and it did not return anything that looked like the make command. However, I did just go ahead and install everything that it listed. It didn't work. Is Suse 9.1 supposed to be more than one cd or something? The make command seems like it would be installed from the initial installation.

Aha!!! I can only work with the information you provided. Telling me that you use 9.1 brings us closer to a solution: 9.1 Personal Edition is not shipped with development-tools. That means all devel, source or compiler packages are missing on your installation medium.

However, they can be installed from any SUSE FTP server. Have a look at this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=266647

GRR. I'm just going to download 9.3 and give that a shot. I really, really appreciate your help though. I'm stupid when it comes to the specifics of each version of each distro, I thank you again!

You are welcome and not the first who fell into the 9.1 Personal trap. That was the reason why I wrote the above mentioned thread. Have more fun with 9.3!
