The upstream of LinuxCNC pitch for installation on Ubuntu / Debian
http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Build_A_Simulator_Manually explains how to install on ubuntu
There they have used dpkg-checkbuilddeps which is specific to debian family.
Is there any equivalent to **dpkg-checkbuilddeps **in openSUSE
LinuxCNC source can obtained from https://github.com/jepler/linuxcnc-mirror
I don’t think so, but you really don’t need it, it’s probably a script that parses the configure file.
It’s sufficient to run
from the root dir and read the terminal output, if a dependency is missing you’ll get an error message, the you can install it by getting the appropriate *-devel package.
also helps getting that info.
I know reading errors from the terminal is not that fun but you can always see the readme file and install dependencies.
