Thread: Adding C++ etc. for compilation of programs.

  1. #1

    Default Adding C++ etc. for compilation of programs.

    I have a KDE 13.1 install on a 64 MB system. I am new to suse. I need to install whatever it takes to compile an application from source code. When I run ./configure the system can't find c++.

    Usually all the required programs for compilation etc. are included with Slackware..With Debian etc. you have to run
    apt-get install build.essentials
    (or something similar.)

    So what is the magic formula for openSUSE? Hopefully there is a package that has all the needed programs.
    I am unfamiliar with yAST and zypper but the latter seems to be simpler.

    Default Re: Adding C++ etc. for compilation of programs.

    In YaST:
    click on "View" and select "Patterns", then mark the "C/C++ development" pattern for installation in the left list.

    With zypper:
    Code:
    sudo zypper in -t pattern devel_C_C++

    Hi John
    I see you also posted in alt.os.linux.suse

    You need to install patterns-openSUSE-devel_C_C++

    You can do this via YaST or from the command line using zypper
    Code:
    zypper in patterns-openSUSE-devel_C_C++
    If you prefer nntp, you can use it on the forum, just use
    nntp.opensuse.org in your news reader.
