    No clicking it not - did I say it's NOT windows!

    It means you need to install those packages.
    I suggest you stop and learn now or you just be re-installing

    You can install the development tools (make, gcc, patch) by typing:

    Code:
    zypper in -t pattern devel_basis
    But if you're looking for a click playground ... I think another operating system might be more appropriate. (Don't remember how it is called though).

    there are three or four different ways to get a terminal with root
    privileges. since you don't know about them, it would be really helpful
    (for you) to read the post henk suggested. "click here," "do that,"
    without understanding what you're doing _may_ help you in this case, but
    it won't in the long run.

    short answer: type "su", and when asked for the root password, give it.
