Thread: what C compiler to install on openSUSE 11?

    Default what C compiler to install on openSUSE 11?

    I have all my C codes that compile nicely on GNU C on the Solaris x86 environment. On Solaris, I simply type "gcc filename.c" to compile the code.

    My openSUSE 11 system runs on a PC with a 64-bit Intel motherboard.

    What do I need to do in order to install the GNU C on openSUSE 11?

    I understand I need to go to Yast, and then "Software Management". But there are so many choices to choose on there. I don't know which one (or which ones) I need. Please advise. Thank you.

    Hi
    What version of gcc were you using the default one in /usr/sfw/bin, csw
    or sunfreeware versions?

    gcc version 4.3.1 is the default, installing gcc is just a softlink
    to /usr/bin/gcc-4.3

    You just need to install the packaged named "gcc" (and all the automatically selected dependencies). Search for it or use the filter "Patterns" and find under "Base Development".
