Thread: RC1 looks great but can't compile

    Default RC1 looks great but can't compile

    Hi, I ran the livecd of 11 rc1 x86-64 and I liked how it looked and ran however even after I installed the kernel headers, gcc, and make + the pulled dependencies of course. I still got errors about the kernel configuration/arch.
    I'm just giving feedback here, I used suse 7.x a long time ago when I started with linux. I wish it was easier to get the "build-essential" package(s) installed in opensuse.

    If there is an easier way to get the system working for building from tar.gz please let me know what that is.

    hi,

    usually i do following:
    yast2 -> Software Management -> choose for Patterns -> scroll down to Development section and check Base Development box.
    it will install all necessary building tools (at least i never had to install anything else, unless very specific had required)

    "You're doing it wrong". It's easy as eating pie.

    To install a C/C++ compiler and required Development Tools; open YAST > Software Management ; Change Filter to 'Patterns' and select C/C++ Compiler and Tools ; Click Accept.

    Bang, you have full build environment.

    Too hard and like to do it from console:
    zypper install -t pattern devel_C_C++

    Chaching.

    The available linux-kernel-headers package
    doesn't match the kernel update. So external
    drivers won't compile. I suspect the headers
    update will be available in a day or so... right?

    Best regards,
    Bob
