Library problem

I am using opensuse 11.3 on a computer with limited internet connectivity.Can anyone provide a list of essential libraries which would be enough for most applications.I get errors due to library missing while running configure script.

Hello Aatish910 and welcome to the community!:slight_smile:

I’m afraid such list doesn’t exist.

It strongly depends on what kind of program you need to compile.
You need different library when compiling a kernel module compared to a game.
But if you for example compile games libraries such as SDL, openGL, openAL etc are likely to be needed.

Just one more thing, if configure says a library is missing you need to install the development library.
So you need to install the library package <libname>-devel.

Good luck!:wink:
