Thread: how to install packages from Internet

    Default how to install packages from Internet

    I' want to install IPFW/Dummynet on SUSE Enterprise version
    however, I don't know how to install ncurses-dev from Internet
    someone suggests using "yast", is it possible to use it as if using "apt-get" or "yum"?


    1 The current version is:

    suttas1:~ # lsb_release -a
    LSB Version: core-2.0-noarch:core-3.0-noarch:core-2.0-ia32:core-3.0-ia32:desktop-3.1-ia32:desktop-3.1-noarch:graphics-2.0-ia32:graphics-2.0-noarch:graphics-3.1-ia32:graphics-3.1-noarch
    Distributor ID: SUSE LINUX
    Description: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (i586)
    Release: 10
    Codename: n/a
    suttas1:~ # cat /etc/issue

    Welcome to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 (i586) - Kernel \r (\l).



    2 I'm not able to install ncurses-dev.

    I found a link where there are ncurses-dev RPM, however, no .rpm files for SESU Enterprise are available.I tried several .rpm files for OpenSUSE and SUSE factory, but they are errors or dependencies-not-available. I tried to install those dependencies, and the system prompted me to install other dependencies for these dependencies....

    RPM resource ncurses-devel

    I also tried command zypper, since the version of the SESU OS is not openSUSE but enterprise, the system prompted me to insert media...



    3 the procedures for installing IPFW/DUMMYNET are :

    --------------------------------------------
    ***** Linux 2.6.x ******

    make KERNELPATH=/path/to/linux USRDIR=/path/to/usr

    where the two variables are optional an point to the linux kernel
    sources and the /usr directory. Defaults are USRDIR=/usr and
    KERNELPATH=/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build --- XXX check ?

    NOTE: make sure CONFIG_NETFILTER is enabled in the kernel
    configuration file. You need the ncurses devel library,
    that can be installed according your distro with:
    apt-get install ncurses-dev # for debian based distro
    yum -y install ncurses-dev # for fedora based distro
    You can enable CONFIG_NETFILTER by doingdevel:

    "(cd ${KERNELPATH}; make menuconfig)"

    and enabling the option listed below:

    Networking --->
    Networking options --->[*] Network packet filtering framework (Netfilter)

    If you have not yet compiled your kernel source, you need to
    prepare the build environment:

    (cd $(KERNELPATH); make oldconfig; make prepare; make scripts)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------



    thank you!

    Is the web crazy or is it just me?
    ---------------------------------
    what is the meaning of this sentence?

    thank you!

    Hi
    You need to grab the SDK (free download) from;
    http://download.novell.com/Download?...d=eRAdQttrkeA~

    You only need the DVD1 as DVD2 is the src rpms

    Just add the DVD iso image via YaST -> Add on products to have it
    available as a local repository the either use YaST or rug to install.

    You might also want to post in the correct SLES forum at
    http://forums.novell.com as these are really for openSUSE
