flickrfs on OpenSuse 12.3

Has any been able to mount flickrfs on Opensue 12.3?
I've found information to mount it using Ubuntu but the process has not worked for me using OpenSuse 12.3.

There is a compile flickrfs for opensuse.
When I run it I receive this error:

I've also tried using firefox instead of Chrome, but problem is the same.

Not tried with that post because packages are a bit different (at least packages names). If this release doesn't work, suppose I'll find problems trying to compile from source.

That's why I'd like to know if any has been able to mount flickrfs on OpenSuse 12.3.

that is one old and out of date page
last updated in 2006

you are going to have issues with python2.4 on opensuse 12.3
Python2.7 is installed and it looks like it needs the rather OLD python 2.4

you CAN NOT !!!!!!!!! replace 27 with 24
but you can install 2.4 side by side with 2.7



flickfs, opensuse
