Problem with new installation of SUSE, gcc & make not found


Problem with new installation of SUSE, gcc & make not found

I just installed SUSE off the cd and its not finding gcc or make, and who knows what else.

Im looking at Package Groups and I see
Development
-Languages
-Libraries
-Tools
I have everything checked and gcc and make are still not there.

What is the exact Package Group I need installed to get these commonly used programs?

Why dont they include them? How am I suppose to configure make and make install anything without them?

What version of Suse did you install. If its 9.1 personal, then it didn't have the development tools.

The personal version of Suse was made for those who would not be compiling their own software. There are a lot of people out there who may prefer not to compile their own software and use whatever package management system that was provided by the distro. So yeah there are people who use linux who may never have used gcc or make.

Downloaded the CD

Downloaded the first CD from opensuse....however my wireless didnt configure. So I search and find some answers including madwifi, and ndiswrapper, but also find out my network card was supported in previous versions and taken out!
Anyway...have a coffee and get to work...find the chipset drivers and want to compile them...no problem, some guy has good instructions on how he did it....get to "make"...bash tells me no such command....ok...thats strange, there was only 270 odd Meg on the first CD, why not squeeze in make? No problem...another coffee, get to work....rpm make in, and run the command...."gcc" not recognised by bash....huh???????!!!!! Look at the system, no compiler on board...grrrrr....ok, download the compiler....another coffee...get to work....src not found....Ah of course...why would I need the bloody source, I havent got a compiler anyway!
Another coffee...downloading Debian.
