Hmm, using a tar.gz ? are you sure you want to compile ? normally, YaST - software management is used for installing new software. Which piece of software are you trying to install ? Have a look at Webpin if you can’t find it in YaST -software management.If you still wish to compile the program,let us know what it is & we will see what we can do
I switched from windows to Linux out of MAJOR frustrations with windows, and software issues related to windows. But in all of my frustrations, I haven’t really taken the time to learn how to effiecently run the Linux OS.
Cool, best thing to do, go to YaST- software management & type in gimp. it will appear in the right side menu.click on it to place a check-mark in the box.Then, at the bottom right,click on accept & the software manager will install it. You may be asked for the install disk that you used to install openSUSE,so have that handy
