Hey everyone? I want to use the Linux version of Soulseek on SuSe 9.1 personal edition. I think the program is called Psyseek or something I dont know. But it says that I need to install this package called Python 2.4. How do I do that using Suse 9.1? Also when i try to compile the package (cuz i downloaded it and tried to just compile it the traditional method), Suse 9.1 tells me that it cant find a proper C compiler. But when i check Yast to see if my C compiler is downloaded or not, it says it is downloaded and installed already. Anyone have any idea how to get the C compiler to work so i can install that Python package myself?
Make sure that both gcc and g++ are installed. For gcc, g++ and glibc, please install them from YaST. You will save yourself from possible headaches later if you avoid installing a different version from a different source. There should be a package for python that you can install from rpm instead of source. You may also want to install 'idle' also. ( Incidently, the python language is named after the comedy troup and not the snake, idle is the python console, named after Eric )
You can type in 'gcc -V' and 'g++ -V' in the console to display the version installed, and the include and library locations. You may want to perform a search on both 'gcc' and 'g++' to see if there are related functions that you may want to install.
Check in YaST what the version of python the 9.1 rpm package supplies. It may be adequate.
i tried the gcc -V and g++ -V and both times it says to me that command not found. Also when i tried to install it from yast it wont let me install. When i search for it using yast it says that it is already installed. Yet i dont know which directory it is installed under and where i can find it. Any suggestions?
awesome thanks that helped me get gcc!! But when i tried to configure Python and i ran the configure script, it said it made the make file, but when i type make it says command not found. Any suggestions?
