Thread: How to get MAKE command - openSUSE 10.3?

    Default How to get MAKE command - openSUSE 10.3?

    Hi

    I am using openSUSE 10.3 and the pc is DELL Optiplex 780.
    The network devices is not supported by openSUSE 10.3 but I may have found it's module. But I can't "MAKE INSTALL" it as my installation does not have MAKE command.

    I have selected "Install All" during my installation.
    Linux version is 2.6.22.5-31-default.
    The ISO size is around 600MB.

    What is the package name for the MAKE command? So that I can find it so that I can install it into my openSUSE 10.3?
    Or a direct link will be very helpful.

    ps: I only can use openSUSE 10.3

    why is that?
    i ask because this community no longer supports openSUSE 10.3, support
    for it ended in october 2009..

    your problem seems to be that you have a LiveCD instead of an install
    DVD--as the DVD contains and has the ability to install the
    development packages (in which there will be the make utility)..

    do you have access to a DVD (careful, there were two different DVDs
    one for 32 and another for 64 bit install)?

    you MIGHT find what you need here and below:

    http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/dis...ribution/10.3/
    but, that repo is stale..

    The link helps me ALOT!!!
    Thanks!

    I think I have the Live CD. I thought I also downloaded the full DVD?
    Seems to be lost.....

    I have to use 10.3 because the software I want to use seems to only support 10.3

    can't remember the name, but is it some really fancy interactive
    graphics....out Germany....someone needs to clue that company to
    either "move on" or collect a full set of 10.3 disks/repos etc to give
    when they sell their software pack..

    well, whatever software you have that requires 10.3 you (or someone)
    really needs to realize that eventually that old repo could/will go away..

    I even have to deal with Redhat 7 last year.
    I am also dealing with novell 3 and DOS machines. And the fellow who wrote the DOS software retired years ago.

    Some stuff are so old that it is a monumental task to recode it to suit modern hardware.


    I am downloading the full DVD and will troubleshoot from there.

    Another qns,

    Will there be a problem if I install 32bit opensuse on a 64bit machine?

    No problems. Just a limit of 3.5 Gbs of system memory as maximun.

    dig around in the archives (accessible via both google and this forums
    advanced search function) using the network card brand/chip until you
    find the workaround/wrapper/driver driver/module you need..

    and/or post anew in the networking conference..

    you ARE at a great disadvantage with that 10.3 out-of-support
    system..(and, you might find a workable driver in 11.x)

    I think I will 11.2 and check which module it is using and then search for the module for 10.3 based on the info.

    You need to add the basic development packages in yast to get the c++ compiler which will allow you to compile the file. You will probably need the kernel headers for your kernel version.
    Have a look at:
    http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/opensuse/update/10.3
    and see if the network card is there.
    Another, perhaps easier solution is to add an older network card and use this instead.
