can't find glibc-devel for SuSE 9.1


hello i'm new to linux and even newer to SuSE. i'm using 9.1. I moved from Mandrake 10.0 because it was absolute crap. hopefully SuSE will be better, anyway..............

i'm trying to compile gaim and i got the typical gcc, c++ blah blah not found errors. so i'm trying to get them all but i can't find glibc-devel. i tried rpmfind but the server is crap.

on a side note, how do i change the mouse from doing a single-click to open folders, it's driving me crazy, i want double-click back

Yea, I ran into the same issue, but not a problem. Try this link:

ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.1/suse/i586/

You'll need atleast the following (and possibly other modules). There is a heiarchy order to install the commonC++-devel 2.1.0.13-12... I've had to install the following packages:

zlib1.2.1-70.i586.rpm
zlib-devel.i586.rpm

readline4.3-306.i586.rpm
readline-devel.i586.rpm

libxml2-2.6.7-28.i586.rpm
libxml2-devel.i586.rpm

binutils.i586.rpm
glibc-devel-2.3.3.i586.rpm

libstdc++-devel.i586.rpm

glibc-dev.rpm
gcc-2.2.2-41.i586.rpm
gcc-c++ 3.3.3-41.rpm

CommonC++-2.1.0.13-125.i586.rpm
CommonC++-devel2.1.0.13-125.i586.rpm

ncurses-5.4-61.3
ncurses-devel-5.4-61.3

make-3.80-184
... and I think there was a make-devel

I think that is all of them, if not as you install the rpm's it'll toss an error message as to which ones your missing. I installed these using YaST without a hitch.

op <- newoob on the prowl.

refffer to http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=253645 - in the first post there are five sources to add to YaST Installation Sources... just make sure tghe PAckman works - and u'll be albe to install everything......

P.S.: The Packman sometimes doesnt work because u have to move rthe sources up and down to get it work -
i HAVE THE PACKAN ON TOP, THAN SUPPLEMENTARY software sdources, tyhan GNOME, than KDE, and at the end the HDD dir with the suse 9.1 from ftp...

thanks, i found the glibc devel. and i just gave up on compiling because it never works, ever. i just got the rpm of gaim, and everything else i'll be using.


i don't understand why the default on 'user friendly' linux distros is not to install everything needed to compile and such. i know each program might have different dependencies but the basics still don't get installed. after searching for a week i still can't find how to compile something correctly. no one seems to have answers. i don't see the point in having an OS that you can't do anything with. i guess that's why people put rpms out. i love YaST

oooook, i wonder why after 10 posts of posting konsole command lines that no one told me to install 'make' i have everything else but nothing about make. i've been trying to make without make. uuuuuhhh, also no one has said that i might need to delete the config.cache file for changes to take effect. daaaah! and what's with not being in su mode until you do make install. can't i just be a su during the whole process? how would that hurt anything?

yeahhhh ... learning curve, cept I got slung off in the first turn of it. I did the same thing and kept getting all kind of errors. I think this problem is allievated with 9.2 Pro, can someone confirm?

Are all the compiler/developer libraries installed along with 9.2 Pro?

They are if you choose them during the install.

... yep ... ha ha ha ... I was kicking myself too. I remembered compiling basic and pascal programs on an old Vax unix machine ... three steps. Thought this was a slicker process only running the ./configure ... only to discover there was a 'make' step. Still simplier though. It's all about the learning process. One thing's for certain, once ya make a mistake and discover the solution after beating yourself up over it - ya never forget to do it again!

(My scroll wheel works now ... yahooo! ... talk about the duhhh ... feeling, and I wouldn't have found the setting (least I wasn't looking for one) until someone ask about making a touch pad function. dohh.)
