Suse 9.1 problems


I love suse so far, its really nice

But I went to install xchat, and it says GTK can't be found, then when I go to install it I get a:

I think you have the same problem I did:
If you have the downloaded version of SuSE, it comes with no compiler (gcc) and no make command (and no....almost everything, I left for Fedora because of that). I had to download rpms for glibc, gcc and make among many others...

are you running the personal or professional version of SuSE 9.1?

if your running Pro open up YaST and click on Install Remove Programs then search for glibc and gcc and install them.
If your running Personal you will need to get the packages from the SuSE FTP site eather through the YaST Online Update or by setting the FTP site as a source of installation and then running Install Remove Programs

Why in the world would they put out a distro, and not have make or a c compiler?

Thats like building a car with no motor for goodness sake.... That's pretty dumb.

I went into the online update, and I see libgcc, but it says it's already installed and there is no gcc in the list, nor make.

Alright, WAKE UP SUSE!!!

This is rediculous. I can't beleive I wasted the time or the CD on this crap. This is about as usefull as DOS!

I tried to install MAKE and GCC from an rpm, but it said it needed GCC to install the GCC!!!!!!!!!!!!

Suse can die.

You guys are too funny...
Add this FTP to Yast as an installation source:

ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.1/suse/i586

then, you have access to everything that is on the professional cd. Keep in mind, the first time you go to "Add/Remove Software" after adding this source, it may take as much as 5 minutes to load up. THis is because it is adding a list of over 4GB of software. Then,you can search for "make" and "gcc" in yast and install them from the network.

All this is available to the people with the free edition, just not conveniently located on a disk for you.

Post back if you need help adding the ftp source.

enjoy,
-myk

I spent a long time (It seemed long) figuring out the right directory to drill down to when I was trying to download. Learning means I have now been to download sites several times so at least I have experience with one thing.

Here is the one I used earlier today to update.
ftp://ftp.oregonstate.edu/pub/suse/suse/i386/9.1

I still can't seem to get the update to work right. Still says "Cant cd to i386"

I tried getting those files through a web browser on the ftp sites, but everytime I installed one it said it needed another. By the time I got to 10 or so, I gave up.

Unless you can tell me how to get the update to work right, im just going to try Mandy 10.1

the URL [ftp://ftp.oregonstate.edu/pub/suse/suse/i386/9.1 ] u guys are giving is the full path which seems to be wrong ... as its trying to change directory into i386

So only give the following url and let Yast cd[change directory] into i386 directory as it is a level higher..

try this ---->ftp://ftp.oregonstate.edu/pub/suse/suse/

I guess I wasn't quite clear enough. The key is to find the right level in the directory to start from. This took me a while in trial and error. Start with the deepest directory then leave one directory out of the string until it works.

I don't think the string is too picky about having a "/" on the end or not but it could be. Not at my Linux machine so I can't check it out.

When I was attempting I found I needed to be at the 9.1 directory but no deeper or it couldn't recognize the source. The i586 directory was too deep in the string.
