Is it even possible to use it in OpenSuse? I can't find it in YAST, so I'm guessing I need to add a special repo?

Also, I downloaded the tarball provided on the python website for 3.3, extracted it, opened the directory in terminal and tried to follow the directions in the readme which went something like:

./configure
make
make install

but I kept getting "command not found" for all three instructions! Is that normal? Does everyone who installs OpenSuse 12.3 have this issue?
