Suse 10.0 install notes


First off, I suggest you use the installer with date code 20051203 (or later). The 2005080X installer may not work with SuSE-10.0 without major upfront preparation.

Secondly, if you are installing gEDA onto a pre-existing SuSE system, make sure your system runs the Gnome desktop, or at least has the Gnome libraries installed. If you have a KDE desktop system, unpredictable things may happen with the installer.

The remainder of these instructions describe how to build your SuSE system so that you may install gEDA. If you already have gEDA built (and it's a Gnome desktop), you can use YaST to install any of the below-mentioned packages you might be missing from your original install.

When installing SuSE-10.0 using YaST, click on the “change” button when YaST shows you your configuration. Select “software” → “details”. Then add the following packages to your installation list:

  • C/C++ tools
  • Kernal development
  • Gnome development
  • KDE development
  • TCL/Tk development

Then change the filter to search for and install the following packages:

  • Gtk-devel
  • Termcap
  • Ncurses-devel
  • wxGTK-devel

Once these packages are installed, the installer should run to completion.
