RC1 looks great but can't compile

Hi, I ran the livecd of 11 rc1 x86-64 and I liked how it looked and ran however even after I installed the kernel headers, gcc, and make + the pulled dependencies of course. I still got errors about the kernel configuration/arch.
I’m just giving feedback here, I used suse 7.x a long time ago when I started with linux. I wish it was easier to get the “build-essential” package(s) installed in opensuse.

If there is an easier way to get the system working for building from tar.gz please let me know what that is.


usually i do following:
yast2 -> Software Management -> choose for Patterns -> scroll down to Development section and check Base Development box.
it will install all necessary building tools (at least i never had to install anything else, unless very specific had required)

“You’re doing it wrong”. It’s easy as eating pie.

To install a C/C++ compiler and required Development Tools; open YAST > Software Management ; Change Filter to ‘Patterns’ and select C/C++ Compiler and Tools ; Click Accept.

Bang, you have full build environment.

Too hard and like to do it from console:
zypper install -t pattern devel_C_C++


The available linux-kernel-headers package
doesn’t match the kernel update. So external
drivers won’t compile. I suspect the headers
update will be available in a day or so… right?
