    Default How to install software from opensuse DVD?

    Hi everyone,

    My question being short is: Can I install gcc from openSUSE installation DVD? If yes, how?

    My story is: I need to install openssl and wpa_applicant to use wireless at uni. but first of all, I need gcc to compile them. I downloaded gcc in windows and tried to install it in openSUSE, but it has dependencies, then dependencies have their own dependencies, and on and on. Can I install gcc from installation DVD? If yes, how?

    PS. I can't connect to internet in openSUSE at the moment, so have to do it offline.

    Many thanks.

    * tsynfeng,

    Yast, Software Management should work by default unless you disabled the DVD as a repository.

    yes, installing just "gcc" can be troublesome...better to (imo) install a more
    complete development environment

    try this: (assumes you have not removed the DVD from the repository list--as is
    default)

    -open YaST

    -give root pass when asked

    -click Software Management

    -in new window, near top, spin Filter: from "Search" to "Pattern"

    -scroll down to "Development" and if empty, left click to place a check mark in

    --"Base Developmen

    --"C/C++ Development"

    -it may/will probably add a list of dependencies it is also adding, click ok,
    and will probably ask you to insert your install DVD..

    do those things and then click accept...

    hope it helps,
