Thread: Make command not found

  1. #1

    Default Make command not found

    Hi,
    I installed openSUSE 12.3 GNOME via USB drive using ImageWriter to "burn" the .iso on it.
    I have a Broadcom BCM4313 wireless card, which is not supported, and was trying to have it working by installing the drivers downloaded (using my win partition since i cannot connect without wireless) by broadcom website 802.11 Linux STA driver | Broadcom

    While following the readme for installation, i was not able to build the program using #make command, since it tells me "command not found".

    I then tried to check if it could be found in the installation media repository, but i don't know how to do that (tried to do something via YaST but failed).

    Since I am quite a newbie to linux and unix (though i know quite well how a computer should work in win framework) I would ask to be as clear as possible on what i could do to solve the problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    When you want to build programs/packages, you need the Developement pattern. YaST > Software > Software management. From the View button, choose Patterns. Scroll down to Development. Then check C/C++ Development for install (I assume it will take Base Development with it). It will contain make and C compilers, etc.
    I assume (but I dit not look) that this is available on the install DVD.

    You can find complete driver packages here:
    PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket broadcom-wl

    Download the broadcom-wl and the correct broadcom-wl-kmp package for the kernel you are using (presumable broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop) and install them either by right-clicking on the downloaded .rpm files and selecting "Open with"->"Install/Remove Software", or by typing "sudo rpm -i broadcom*.rpm" in a terminal window.

    Please post the output of the command "uname -a" and I can give you the exact links to the packages you need.

    @wolfi323 uname -a replies with

    Code:
    Linux suse1.site 3.7.10-1.1-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Feb 28 15:06:29 UTC 2013 (82d3f21) i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    @hcvv I cannot find any "view" button in YaST software management, so i don't know where i should look to get the pattern. I don't know if it matters but i receive this error message while opening it

    Code:
    'repo-update-non-oss': http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.3-non-oss/
    [repo-update-non-oss|http://download.opensuse.org/update/12.3-non-oss/] Repository is not cached
    But i think it's just because it cannot find the repository online, since it's not connected.

    Then you need to download and install those 2 packages:
    http://packman.links2linux.de/downlo...1-2.1.i586.rpm
    http://packman.links2linux.de/downlo...6-2.1.i586.rpm

    After a reboot, your wireless should work.
    Please note, that you might have to enable NetworkManager in YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings->Global Options if you want to use your desktop's network applet.

    It is the leftmost button in the toolbar and has a scrolldown menu.

    Yes, those errors are because you have no netwoork to reach the repos. You disable them for the moment, but as you say you are nevertheless in that window (not seeing that button), I think you can ignore them. Yourr installation devive must of course be added as a repo.

    But all above becomes nil when you follow wolfi323's advice, which sounds much more clean and nice to me then mine.
