Thread: Help installing from tarballs

    Default Help installing from tarballs

    I recently switched back to suse from ubuntu and I know in ubuntu when installing from source, i could enter the command auto-apt to automatically install all dependencies. However since suse does not use the APT system, i cannot use that command. Is there a way of auto installing required dependencies of a tarball, not rpm, in suse like i was able to do in ubuntu?

    using suse 11.2 x64

    I am afraid that the answer is NO.

    The answer of 'no' is correct but there is a trick which might help you

    If by any chance there is a package for the tarball you can download the source rpm, split it up with unrpm and then look at the spec file to check the dependencies for this package. Then you install those and compile the tarball.
