I am a newbee for opensuse. I downloaded the 11.1(gnome)from the novell website. But when i go to
software manager (patterns) to see what kind of packages are installed, i found out no packages listed thre.
Actually i need c/c++ development packages so that i can
install oracle database on it.
So, what is wrong with this? How can i get those packages? or i just didn’t find the right place?

To install a C/C++ compiler and required Development Tools; open YAST >
Software Management ; Change Filter to ‘Patterns’ and select C/C++
Development ( On 11.0 this is called C/C++ Compiler and Tools ) ;
Click Accept. To accomplish this from a command line, as root,
issue; zypper install -t pattern devel_C_C++
Thanks for the reply.
When i go to software manager, choose the patterns,
there is no thing showing in the list so that i cannot choose the /c++ development.
Some one told me that the opensuse 11.1 free download from the Novell doesn’t contain that package. I had to buy. Is this correct?

No, that is not correct. It may not be on the Live CD, but the packages
are in the online repositories for openSUSE.
You mean GNOME:STABLE:2.24.repo, i found on this page–
Index of /repositories/GNOME:/STABLE:/2.24/openSUSE_11.1
Please help me. I really need to get this figured out so to install the oracle on it.
The LIVECD i downlaoded is just one CD.
hOW can it be so small? just 1 cd.
Live CD’s are usually for testing purposes. They’re a quick and easy way to get an idea of how a linux distribution will work on a computer without installing onto the hard drive.
They don’t have all the software that the DVD has. Because of this, they’re smaller in size.
You can still install from a live cd, but you’ll need to download everything you don’t have, that might have been on the dvd, from the repositories.
In your case, all the C++ development packages are in the OSS and Update repo’s. Open up a terminal and post the output of
The output is
| Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh
1 | openSUSE 11.1-0 | openSUSE 11.1-0 | Yes | No
2 | repo-debug | openSUSE-11.1-Debug | No | Yes
3 | repo-non-oss | openSUSE-11.1-Non-Oss | Yes | Yes
4 | repo-oss | openSUSE-11.1-Oss | Yes | Yes
5 | repo-source | openSUSE-11.1-Source | No | Yes
6 | repo-update | openSUSE-11.1-Update | Yes | Yes
I solved this issue. Thanks for everyone’s help.
