Question apt4suse error when trying to install in suse 10.1


I have just installed SUSE 10.1. As far as I know, everything goes well but apt4suse. When I enter the command " install-apt4suse ", I get the following:

bogomir:/home/bgorjup/Prenosi # install-apt4suse
/usr/bin/install-apt4suse: line 212: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/usr/bin/install-apt4suse: line 212: ` echo "Currently $ACTIVE_COMP component(s) are activated."'

Open /usr/bin/install-apt4suse in an editor and change line 144 to this -
if [ "$SUSE_VERSION" = "10.0"] || [ "$SUSE_VERSION = "10.1" ]; then
Here's the wiki page for apt4suse -

Sorry if you already did that. It's just the first thing that springs to mind.

Hi shame,

yes, I did , I have changed the line 144 according to the instructions. But my problem is line 212 - which is some syntax error ??? I dont know, because I am not an expert in Linux. Been doing it for a year now and am steel learning.

thanks anyway for trying.
