Install problems with Suse 9.1 Personal + Bittorrent

I have been having lots of problems installing bittorrent. First when i got the rpm it said it needed python libraries. then when i downloaded those they said i needed a c compiler. now one i've downloaded that it says i need automake. Did i do something wrong when i installed Suse? is it supposed to be this hard to install bittorrent? or am i just doing something dead wrong.... Whatever the case, thanks in advance,
Tim B.

Suse doesn't come with a compiler so it's not weird you're missing the gcc package. Might also explain the automake missing.

Don't know for the rest but I'd say if you followed the installation it should have installed all packages it needs? Maybe you can try the package manager to install the packages from the CD to see if you miss some?
