Thread: GAMBAS

    Default GAMBAS

    Nobbie Question:
    I'm trying to install Gambas on Suse 11.
    According to the Gambas site, I need to download it somewhere else as the distro doesn't work.
    I can only find distros for Suse 10.xx

    Any info on this or how to work around the issue /

    You can get openSUSE packages for Gambas from here:
    Index of /repositories/home:/gbvalor

    Thanks for the link.
    There is about 7 directories.
    I presume I need the one called i586, since I'm on a 32 bit intel machine.
    i586 has about 50 files in it.

    Which file do i download ?

    I don't quite understand the file naming and extensions under Linux but I'm learning.

    Cheers

    Almost all of them are needed except the obvious ones like *corba*, apache*, *mysql*, *postgres* etc.
    Better you download all of them and try to install them except the ones you definitely know are not needed now. (You can install them later when you develop something in that domain. Fox example, gambas2-gb-db-mysql is needed only if you develop applications to connect to mysql database).
    You may need foreign functions interface library - libffi library (not listed there) - that can be downloaded from the openSUSE site:
    Software.openSUSE.org
    Just search for libffi

    By the by, I have never used Gambas myself (I'm bit allergic to BASIC) but I know that it is a wonderful development package for those who come from the VisualBasic world.

    Well, I figured I have to start somewhere.

    And since I have a couple of small applications I need to make for work, I thought it would be a good place to start.
    I normally program in Forth, C or assembly for embedded application and in VB for windows.

    So far the linux experience has been mixed, but I guess I thought the same in 89 when I first fired up DOS, I'm just impatient now

    I just tried it out, created a small program. Really impressive
