    I had no problem installing it from the games repo. There's a few other packages needed, plib for one.
    I used the opensuse software search, but followed the "results from" link to the games repository, right-clicked the "games.repo" file and copied the location to the clipboard. After that, it's open terminal, and type "sudo zypper ar (middle click to paste). Then the program can be installed letting the package manager resolve any dependancys.
    "sudo zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/games/openSUSE_11.0/games.repo"

    Unhappy Re: Flight Gear

    Well, i also have problems.I use openSUSE 10.2, default kernel (no internet connection) and FlightGear 1.0.0-16.5 and FlightGear-data-1.0.0-1.1. I also have 3D acceleration enabled over a Nvidia TNT2. No XGL, no compiz.

    Well here we go...

    A)Running in KDE menu, Flight gear crashes when "initializing subsystems".

    B)Running FlightGear by Konsole it shows

    What's wrong? I don't know. Packages are from opensuse repositories only (get software service).

    Furthermore, if I change FlightGear1.0.0-16.5 by FlightGear1.0.0-16.3 its the same. If i change FlightGear-data-1.0.0-1.1 by FlightGear-data-1.0.0-37.3 it gives me unsolved dependencies (old libraries, not availables at opensuse repos).

    Sorry for the "huge" post.

    Talking Re: Flight Gear

    I answer myself: the solution was uninstall FlightGear 1.0.0 and install the old packages 0.9.10 from

    http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...10.29.i586.rpm

    http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...10-21.i586.rpm

    It's sad that the best openSUSE (from my point of view) have been discontinued. I will download all the repositories to my hard disk to prevent future problems.

    Novell, don't remove the repos at least!!

    Default Re: Flight Gear

    OK, Here we go.

    I had been continually frustrated with the older version of FlightGear that comes with the OpenSuSE 11.0 Version repository on my AMD 64 bit machine, with a Nvidia graphics card. Finally I tried it the other day using KfreeFlight, another frustrating project. It was broken, so that was the final straw.

    Solution! Remove it, and install Version 1.9 from source, along with the fgrun GUI.

    How to:

    * Make sure that you have one of those cool 3D
    graphics cards and that 3D acceleration is set up and
    working.

    * Download FlightGear version 1.9.1 source code from:
    FlightGear Flight Simulator

    *Download FlightGear base package (data) v 1.9.0 from:
    FlightGear Flight Simulator

    * Download SimGear version 1.9.1 source code from:
    SimGear Downloads

    * Download Fgrun version 1.0.0-17.8.x86_64 rpm from:
    RPM Search FlightGear-fgrun[]=46

    All the rest of these commands are done using the root account.

    * Use Yast to remove FlightGear, SimGear, Flightgear data & fgrun.

    * Install all the dependent libraries using this command:

    zypper install plib openal openal-soft-devel freeglut freeglut-devel OpenSceneGraph gcc43 gcc boost-devel gcc-c++ freealut freealut-devel plib-devel libOpenSceneGraph-devel OpenSceneGraph-plugins automake libOpenThreads-devel

    * unzip the FlightGear-data-1.9.0.tar.bz2 file and install it:
    cd /usr/share/FlightGear

    tar cvzf data.tgz data

    rm -Rf data

    cp <downloads_directory>/FlightGear-data-1.9.0.tar.bz2 .

    tar --use-compress-program bzip2 -xvf FlightGear-data-1.9.0.tar.bz2

    rm FlightGear-data-1.9.0.tar.bz2

    chown <your_username>:users -Rf *

    * unzip and build SimGear:
    tar xvzf SimGear-1.9.1.tar.gz

    cd SimGear-1.9.1

    ./configure --libdir=/usr/local/lib64 --with-jpeg-factory

    make

    make install

    * unzip and build FlightGear:
    tar xvzf FlighGear-1.9.1.tar.gz

    cd FlighGear-1.9.1

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/lib64 --bindir=/usr/local/bin --with-threads --with-simgear=/usr/local --with-osg=/usr/local --libdir=/usr/local/lib64 --without-plib --datarootdir=/usr/local/share/FlightGear

    make

    make install

    * Install fgrun:
    rpm -Uvh --nodeps FlightGear-fgrun-1.0.0-17.8.x86_64.rpm

    -- OK Well that should do it --

    All that is left to do is to plug in your joystick and go into your user account and type in: > fgrun

    The paths that fgrun needs are:

    executable: /usr/local/bin/fgfs
    FG_ROOT: /usr/share/FlightGear

    I added more scenery by placing it in the $FG_ROOT/data/WorldScenery/ directory and unziping them.
    Then just add $FG_ROOT/data/WorldScenery/ to fgrun.

    You can add more aircraft by just placing them into the $FG_ROOT/data/Aircraft directory and using
    unzip <aircraft_name>.zip
    rm <aircraft_name>.zip

    This worked very well for me

    hmmmmm...i was thinking that running config and make as root was not
    the best thing to do....but, i could be wrong...i was back in '73, once.

    What would you recommend then? Rather than just a smug remark.

    @ajwsurfer

    I've tried running FG from the repos with not much success, until eventually I forgot it. Now with your very detailed howto I'll give it another try. Thank you.

    Incidentally, I think the guest may be right, usually the configure and make commands don't require root privileges.
