I'm a little curious about this sux command though, anymore info? hehe.

If you don't use the sux command, you cannot open gui windows from a terminal emulator where you have su'd into root. Another way to enable the gui for a terminal window running as root is to issue these commands to log in as root.

xhost +localhost
su -
root password

sux is just the short way of doing this.

You can't do it through conqurer??

I would guess that the easiest way would then be to do it through the shell...

9.1 does it through Knoquerer, al ya gotta do is click on it, and then click on install with YaST.

2 of the packages you told me to install I cant...

Code:
linux:/home/robert/Documents/Downloads # rpm -ivh red-carpet-2.4.1-0.ximian.9.2.i586.rpm
warning: red-carpet-2.4.1-0.ximian.9.2.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID fd4fe9e9
error: Failed dependencies:
        scrollkeeper is needed by red-carpet-2.4.1-0.ximian.9.2
        /usr/bin/python is needed by red-carpet-2.4.1-0.ximian.9.2
Code:
linux:/home/robert/Documents/Downloads # rpm -ivh rug-2.4.1-0.ximian.9.1.i586.rpm

error: Failed dependencies:
        python >= 2.2 is needed by rug-2.4.1-0.ximian.9.1

Well,
Not having tested this myself, looks like you need python and scroll keeper.

Here's a link to scroll keeper
ftp://194.199.20.114/linux/SuSE-Linu...14-73.i586.rpm
and python:
ftp://194.199.20.114/linux/SuSE-Linu....3-85.i586.rpm

Provisional solution for Suse 9.1 / Gaim install

Getting back to the original subject...

To successfully install Gaim on Suse 9.1 you need to install a few dependencies first.

1. Go to http://linux01.gwdg.de/~pbleser/rpm-...Network%2Fgaim and install the dependencies in the order given. BUT - DON'T install the 'gnutls' RPM from this site - it won't work. If you do / have done already, uninstall it with rpm -e

2. One or two of these installations will probably in turn require dependencies installed before running. You can find these by Googling them. 'liblzo.so.1' is at http://rpmseek.com/rpm/lzo-1.08-104....:0:0:0:1501905

3. Get the all-important 'gnutls' from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/mmj/9.....8-26.i586.rpm This version of the file is on the DVD version of Suse 9.1 but not the CD apparently. Other versions of it on the net do not work (there seems to be some legal issue here - see http://lists.suse.com/archive/suse-l...-Jun/0299.html for details).

The Gaim installation (at first site above) should now finally work.

I'm using gaim.

Here's what I found usefull:
http://linux01.gwdg.de/~pbleser/rpm-...etwork%2Fgaim/

He's got a few dependancies that need to be taken care of, but he's got all the packages on his site.
standard rpm -ivh %package is all I needed.

=-O Ug, I'm trying to install GAIM now and ran into dependacy issues (SuSE 9.1) .
Looks like it's time to play grab the dependancy packages.
Thanks for all the info in this thread.

Ok, I tried to follow rebootkids' advice about installing redcarpet, however, when I type in sux and then put in my root pw, I received the following error msg:

hostname: Unknown host
hostname: Unknown host
xauth: (argv):1: bad display name "/unix:0.0" in "extract" command


What does this mean? How do I correct this so that I can use sux and install redcarpet ? Thanks!

edit: nevermind, looks like I can install the packages now. I'd still like to know what the above message means though

@NoS Sr50, you can install sgml-skel , docbook_4, scrollkeeper, and python all from YaST very easily!
