    Hi
    Welcome You can use a GUI YaST->Software->Software Management, or
    from the command line it's zypper eg;
    Code:
    sudo zypper in gcc
    The other ones are ref for refresh, lu for list updates, up to apply
    updates, se to search etc. See the man page for many more or have a
    read here;

    zypper - if you go to distrowatch.org in a couple
    of their weekly newsletters they discuss the
    various packaging systems and their commands
    (last 3-5 weeks or so), good intro and
    explanation of commands.
