Missing important execs from /bin! HELP


Hello,

I've just installed a downloadable version of SuSE Linux 9.2 but it lacks many important "commands" that I need to install files and such..

I'm missing the following which I need to install software,

configure
make
makefile
cat
less

etc..

Is there a common name for these files, since they should be in every system?
Where can I download them ?

Thanks a lot,

Amer

Those commands are used when building from source code. configure comes in the app itself if required. make is command usually in /usr/bin and uses the Makefile ( from the source code) to build with from the source code you are compiling. Best thing to do is read the Install and readme docs on source code apps. Many of them work this way.
./configure
make
make install ( needs to be run as root)

Why cat is not present I do not know. Do things like ' whereis cat ' to find it.
Other commnads have manuals using the ' man ' command, you can read like ' man make '

Cat is supplied by the coreutils package. Make is supplied by a make package.
You may also need to install the gcc and cplusplus packages.

Yeah..

I need gcc, cpp, and many other software for my system.

But the problem is that I can't ./configure anything..

Everytime I ./config I get "Permission Denied".. I have two users on my system, root and Nectron.. and it doesn't work with both users. I've also set my security settings to the lowest.

Nectron@linux:~/Documents/Programs> chmod -x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
Nectron@linux:~/Documents/Programs> ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
bash: ./RealPlayer10GOLD.bin: Permission denied

How can I fix this??

and where can I download the missing libraries you mentioned?

With chmod -x you removed executable permission from RealPlayer10GOLD.bin so it's no surprise that you got a permission denied message when you tried to execute it. Try chmod +x instead.

SuSE comes with a nice tool called YaST which can help you with system tasks such as installing software etc. I'd suggest getting familiar with it. You can generally find RPMs from rpmfind.net (looks for those built for your version of SuSE).

I've just installed xchat and realplayer10GOLD!

now I get another problem whenever I try to execute the newly installed software..

Nectron@linux:~/Documents/Programs/RealPlayer> ./realplay.bin
./realplay.bin: error while loading shared libraries: /opt/gnome/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_type_class_add_private

xchat: error while loading shared libraries: /opt/gnome/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_type_class_add_private



I've checked the libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 and it's there..

Does anyone know how to solve this?
