suse 10.3: 'bash: lsusb: command not found...'
I have installed opensuse 10.3 and I am trying to install a wireless usb dongle using ndiswrapper etc.
However in a lot of the how-to's I've looked at they say use command 'lsusb'.
I have, and yes, I am logged in as su/root using command:
'su' and also 'su -' But it's still not there.
the command 'lspci', which is of similar use, works fine.

I have checked all the related threads and none seems to explain, what I think is something very basic, what I am missing.

The distro install was from one CD.

What am I missing????

You could install the "usbutils" package.

Great, that works.
Just for anyone else reading this:
The reason I couldn't find the 'usbutils' (not that I even knew it existed!) package was because it wasn't on the distro install disk I had.
I downloaded the single install CD which only has a minimum selection of rpm's on it - it doesn't even have gcc (only the runtimes). I'm sure the DVD has more.
So I downloaded the rpm's from, created a local repository and could then install. The dependency thing has me a bit confused though....but thats another story.
