    Unhappy installation of superkaramba in SUSE 10.0


    im not to sure on how to install anything in linux, so i go by the instrucctions given to me.

    although i have downlaoded superkaramba

    http://netdragon.sourceforge.net/scompiling.html

    i cant manage to compile it..

    so far this works for me in the root console:

    tar -zxvf /home/simplyskillz/superkaramba-0.37.tar.gz

    i get lots of writing etc after pressing enter.. but as soon as i type in

    ./configure

    i get a no such file or directory error.

    can anyone help?

    Once you have unzipped the tarball you need to change into the new superkaramba directory in order to compile, e.g:

    cd super<push the tab key>

    You can then compile. Please not you need the following to compile:

    gcc
    gcc-c++

    An easier way would be to google for a RPM which you can install via Yast.

    by the way, where can i download gcc and gcc-c++
    and are they complicated to install themselves??

    They are available on your installation dvd. To install:

    Yast>software management

    Then type in GCC in the search menu and then check the boxes, Yast will then install the packages.

    If you are new to linux then see here:

    Once you have set up your installation sources as per the link, just open up Yast (as I explain above) and type in superkaramba - Yast will install it for you. No need to unzip files and 'compile from source' (what you are doing by using .gz files).

    Any questions post back.

    wow, thanks so much, i like this Yast thingy.. does it only come with SuSE? it makes life so much easier!

    i dont know how i would be able to cope with linux if it wasnt for people like you on linux forums!

    Many thanks.

    Yes, Yast is something specific to Suse. And yes, it does make life a hell of a lot easier!!!

    As regards Linux then yes, very painful starting out but worth it in the long run ....

    Glad you got everything sorted.
