I work with math/science aps. I try to compile them myself on opensuse. Sometimes it might be necessary to download a precompiled distribution tar.gz file.
I am wondering what would be the best choice of a download distribution that would have the best chance of installing and running properly on opensuse. For some reason math/science software is not often precompiled for opensuse by the developers.
e.g., choices might include:

Anyone with any good experiences, rather than trying a shot in the dark.
