    Default apt-get: Command not found!


    Heys, I'm new to Suse, and im trying to install and fix a program trough
    the console, was going to go "sudo apt-get install build-essentials"
    But then the terminal said Apt-get:command not found, and then ive
    started to wonder, why does my Suse OS not have apt-get command
    installed by default?
    thats question number one, and number two is, how do i get it?

    Thanks
    //SpiderPig.

    Hi
    openSUSE doesn't use apt-get (it is available I think??), it uses the
    zypper command. In this case you could select the base development
    patterns;
    Code:
    sudo zypper in -t pattern devel_basis
    Use the se option to see the full list,
    Code:
    zypper se -t pattern
    There are many more, see the man page

    openSUSE has zypper instead:
    'Zypper/Usage/11.0 - openSUSE' (http://en.opensuse.org/Zypper/Usage)

    Some openSUSE basic concepts:
    'Concepts - openSUSE' (http://en.opensuse.org/Concepts)

    I tried that but on my Ubuntu machine it said:

    > bash: zypper: command not found


    Oh dear, what's wrong?

    PS: It's a joke, ok?

    BTW, I do have something useful to post, come to think of it.
    Distrowatch recently published a cheatsheet summarising the commands for
    all the major (and some minor) package managers. You can find it at

    'DistroWatch.com: Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD.'
