no GCC make in openSUSE11?

I've not long installed openSUSE11 and needed to issue a make command for an extracted tarball I'd downloaded but got 'make: command not found' WTF? It turns out that neither GCC, GC++ nor make are part of the openSUSE11 install-I had to install them from YaST. Have they just not copied over on my installation or were they omitted from the distro deliberately? If so why?

I'm not familiar with OpenSUSE 11 but it seams possible that during install it gives you an option to install something called "Development Tools" or similar so if you want them you need to tick a box or something.

Most distros don't include GCC if they have package managers from what I can tell. Just install it from yast

Install the package 'make'. It's a different package that must be installed separately.

You can run YaST2's package manager. Drop down the Filter list and select Package Groups. There is a Programming package group. From there you can install gcc and make.

You can also use "sudo zypper install make" to install just the make package, but you probably also need to install gcc, g++ and binutils.


gcc, make
