I went through the process that you recommended, but the correct package repositories are not present in “default” 11.1 Do I need to go here Add Package Repositories to YaST - openSUSE to download what is necessary?
Kernel sources,gcc/gcc++ & kernel headers,etc, should be on your install dvd.Once installed you will need to update them as well.Unless ----- you installed via cd,then, all of this will require additional repo’s. If you don’t have the dvd,add this repo & disable the cd ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/distribution/11.1/repo/oss/suse/ selecting which arch you have
Andy,thanks! Since I downloaded the CD version of 11.1, and have it installed, I’ll need to get the 11.1 add-on package repository.
You referenced “selecting which arch you have”. Please explain what that means.
Thank you. OK, I’ve downloaded arch= i686, in folder i686 and have the folder and contents on a cd. YaST was opened and I tried to figure out how to install the contents in either software management, or software repo’s. But, I’m stuck.
If you have the time, please indicate next steps.
as deltaflyer may be getting some hard-earned rest, egrpioneer,
do you have a wired internet connection; that is often recommended if at all physically possible, till one can cut the wires and fly wireless;
if it were, then if you had selected gcc etc, YaST might well have installed them, as you selected them;
so you now want to install Kernel sources,gcc/gcc++ & kernel headers,???
but sounds like you have downloaded them … as rpm files …?? into a directory possibly called Download … or somesuch …
if you then want to install them, you would now make sure YaST is closed … but right-click on the files one by one by opening the directory they are stored in … and
by right-clicking selecting open with software installer; that will open YaST in another form; and it should close after each file is installed; if not, it should be closed, as only edition of YaST is tolerated at any one time;
that is my suggestion; I hope it is correct, and works for you
