    =-._welcome_.-= first time poster Mehrdust..

    i suspect you are a code developer and may find more suitable help in
    our Development fora: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/development/

    that said, sorry but your posting it is confusing to me and i can't
    help until i get unconfused (and i suspect some others also are hoping
    for more info)..

    first, there is no openSUSE version 11.1.1

    and, if you only installed the kernel there is no yast2
    installed...so, what do you mean by 'kernel'? do you mean you have
    default installed? from what: a KDE Live CD, a Gnome Live CD, a DVD
    (if DVD, which desktop environment did you select?)

    or, do you mean you didn't install an X-system (elected to install the
    text mode only)..

    or, did you install SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) version 11 ??
    without a windowing system and it is therefore you try to install from
    the command line using

    Code:
    yast2 -i bison-devel
    anyway first: there is no package named bison-devel in any of the
    openSUSE repos, which you can see by searching at
    http://software.opensuse.org/search

    second: most folks here would have used
    Code:
    zypper in bison-devel
    and i think you might get what you are looking for with

    second: most folks here would have used
    Code:
    zypper in bison
    notes for that bison "The GNU Parser Generator, is a parser generator
    similar to yacc(1)."

    looking deeper i see now a bison-devel package ("The bison-devel
    package contains the -ly library sometimes used by
    programs using Bison-generated parsers. If you are developing
    programs") in the Intel:Moblin2/TEST_REBUILD repo, and a
    bison-devel-2.4.1-4.20.moblin2.i386.rpm is downloadable from:
    http://software.opensuse.org/search/...ry=bison-devel

    hope some of that is helpful, if not too confused..

    Hi denverd,

    Thank you so much for your help.
    Actually i'm using a special version of opensuse customized to work with VICIdial call center solution. It's a text only environment and as for the version it is said to be 11.1.1.

    as for the packages, I need to install a voice card on my machine and to compile it in asterisk. before doing anything i need to install the following packages: (i checked them with rpm -q to see if they exist)

    rpm -q bison
    rpm -q bison-devel
    rpm -q ncurses

    rpm -q ncurses-devel
    rpm -q zlib
    rpm -q zlib-devel
    rpm -q openssl
    rpm -q openssl-devel
    rpm -q gnutls-devel
    rpm -q gcc
    rpm -q gcc-c++

    some of them (eg. bison-devel and ncurses) are not installed.

    i just used the zypper in bison-devel command. here is the output:

    smaRtCALL:/usr/src # zypper in bison-devel
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    'bison-devel' not found.
    Resolving package dependencies...
    Nothing to do.


    I don't know what to do!!!

    There is no such version. I assume you have openSUSE 11.1

    > and i have installed only the kernel.


    That's impossible. And not true, as you are running "yast" per your
    next paragraphs.

    For command line download and install, use zypper instead.

    Here is a guide with some software installation hints, in case it might be of help: openSUSE software installation hints

    Then you have a very special setup and you should be asking them, not
    us >:-)

    You probably have to use special repositories defined by them.

    If you type "rpm -qa | grep -i ncurses" you will probably find that you
    do have ncurses. In my 11.2 I get:

    Elessar:~ # rpm -qa | grep -i ncurses
    yast2-ncurses-pkg-2.18.4-2.10.2.x86_64
    ncurses-utils-5.6-91.2.x86_64
    libncurses5-5.6-91.2.x86_64
    yast2-ncurses-2.18.11-0.1.1.x86_64
    ncurses-devel-5.6-91.2.x86_64
    libncurses6-5.6-91.2.x86_64
    libncurses5-32bit-5.6-91.2.x86_64


    As for bison-devel, it does not exist.
