What do I need for compiling software?

Hi. Can someone tell me what do I have to install in openSUSE 11.1 Gnome 2.24 for compiling software? cause I’m trying to compile conky… sorry for my bad english :slight_smile:

Mostly all you will need is:

make
gcc
kernel-source

However, your application will usually have an info file in the archive detailing the requirements.

You could just use a repo I did a webpin search
Webpin

Thank you :slight_smile:
