I don't know if it makes a difference between Personal and Pro editions, but My pro edition has gcc...

If you dont have it, why not just google it, then install it?

Never used SuSE personal, but if you go into SuSE's homepage, you can easily download and install gcc. Actually, there's an ever better solution: configure your YaST to download and install all packages from the Internet. Besides avoiding the annoyances of switching disks, dependencies are taking care of automatically though YaST. I've wrote a post about that here:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...89#post1087289

I hope that the above works for you. Then again, I did that with SuSE 9.1 and 8.2 pro, but I think the above should work with any SuSE personal as well.

Good luck!

Sure there is no gcc? I can remember some time ago. I was using RedHat (or could be Mandrake.... it was a couple of years ago, anyway) and when wanted to compile something... gcc was not there. But then I found out that the compiler was there, but with another name, something like gcc2.6 (dont remember version), so I put a symbolic link and done...

So maybe it could be a good idea to check the list of packages installed before downloading something.

Good luck

Good point. Try:

rpm -qa | grep gcc

That would confirm if gcc is or not installed. Though, I'm almost sure that SuSE personal does not ship with devel packages as gcc...

Now I'm lost. SuSE 9.0 Pro comes with gcc _on the disks_ but as most of the other distros around, it's not installed by default. I believe you can install gcc from SuSE pro on the Personal simply by going into the mirror servers and getting the packages:

http://www.suse.com/us/private/downl...t_mirrors.html

try copy/paste error messages from a shell too... otherwise we cannot guess which files are missing. Also, you've to install "make" to type make. It's shipped with Professional version of Suse and should be easily installed into Personal by simply downloading the package. Try doing the thing with YaST as I've suggested... it's the easiest way...

Also keep in mind that the package you seek may already have a rpm for SuSE. You can search for it on a SuSE mirror and a lot of rpm's can be found here too:

http://rpm.pbone.net/

I got a gcc rpm and installed it no problem and i can now use the ./configure command but make doesn't work it doesn't recognise it or something. I used YaST2 to install the rpm what can I do?
