Thread: Install program

  1. #1

    Question Install program

    Hello, I'm fairly new to Linux, but have been using it for some time. I downloaded a program called AMSN (got the .tar file) I saved it to my desktop, but when I try to install it, it says it's not found on my system. I go to the command line to unpack it, then make etc... but it says it's not found. Can anyone give me a hand with this? I've tried yast but no luck there either. I even click on the "install" program icon and that doesn't work either. Thanks in advance!

    Thanks. I clicked on the link you gave, but I'm running Suse 11. I get this message: cannot install in this version of suse.

    I still get the message: The install link or file you opened does not contain instructions for this version of open SuSe

    I don't know why I'm having this trouble...My version is 11.0 from the install DVD. How do I check if it's been updated to say..11.2? Thanks.

    i wonder if maybe you are running SUSE Linux Enterprise Linux version
    11 (also known as SLED 11), *or* maybe you are running openSUSE 11.0,
    11.1, or 11.2

    that is *four* possible systems...to learn which one you have, open a
    terminal and type:

    Code:
    cat /etc/SuSE-release
    if you are running SLED you should ask in forums.novell.com as it is a
    purchased system and has support there..

    if you are running openSUSE come back and tell us exactly what OS you
    use (from the code above), confirm you have packman enabled in your
    YaST and then tell us exactly the error you get after trying to
    install amsn with zypper or YaST..

    Ok, it comes up no such file or directory. I know the /etc directory is there. When I look at the install DVD, the cover says "openSuse 11.0"

    Here is the info when I look at the system monitor:

    Kernel Linux 2.6.25.20-0.5-pae

    as far as i can tell only one two things may have happend:

    1. you didn't type carefully enough, it *must* be

    Code:
    cat /etc/SuSE-release
    that is, none/zip/zero/nada of the following will work:

    Code:
    cat /etc/SUSE-release
    cat /etc/suse-Release
    cat /etc/suse-release
    cat /Etc/SuSE-release
    Cat /etc/SuSE-release
    CAT /ETC/SUSE-RELEASE
    cat /etc/SuSE_release
    2. you have a horribly gone wrong install...otherwise it *would* have
    found that file!
