    Default Need help installing -devel packages


    Maybe I'm missing something. I'm extremely new to OpenSuse but am versed
    with Fedora/RH/CentOS.
    I have a standard DVD install of 11.1. At the CLI (I'm using SSH, so
    the GUI does not help me) I tried:

    Code:
    --------------------

    yast -i mysql-devel

    --------------------

    and I also tried

    Code:
    --------------------

    yast2 -i mysql-devel

    --------------------

    but they do not get installed. I tried to remove the DVD as a repo and
    add Packman, but still no luck.
    I searched in YaST and did not see any mysql-devel packages either.
    Can someone tell me what I may be doing wrong or how to get the
    package?
    Thanks!

    Hi
    I think you will find it's a name change and you need to use
    libmysqlclient-devel instead. Also you might want to check out the
    zypper command for searching, install etc
