install enlightenment on SUSE 9.0


I have SUSE 9.0 but it was only one CD, I suppose it's because it lacks some features but it's ok for me, it includes what I need.

However, I'd like to use the enlightenment window management, instead of KDE. I've downloaded some .tar and .rmp files but I can't get to install it... it says it nees some dependencies.

Can you help me?

I tried to install enlightenment but if failed for several problems which I don't remember
If you face difficulties with enlightenment, you could try fluxbox as an alternative (very fast and faced no problems yet)

In order to install Enlightenment though Suse, you have to change your installation source (in Yast->Software) to one of the FTP sites. A list can be found on After that using Yast to install enlightenment correctly. Hope that helps.
