These notes pertain to the latest gEDA CD install (20060825).
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.
When installing SuSE-10.1, click on the “change” button when YaST shows you your configuration. Select “software” → “details”. Then add the following packages to your installation list:
Once these packages are installed, the installer should run to completion. You will need to let the installer become root to install gd-devel as well as WxGTK. If you don't want to do this, then install gd-devel and WxGTK manually before running the installer.
