the main gist of this is can suse 9.1 personal support apt and synaptic prefaberly while yast is good i miss synaptic and apt. I just installed suse about 20 minutes ago so im still exploring,

but of course i have a few more questions
does suse have prebuilt i686 optimized kernels

The reason im looking for synaptic is gnome. i really dislike kde and mostly use xfce or gnome or fluxbox and i wanted to get gnome on here prefably 2.6 or 2.8

also how hard is it to compile gnome from scratch through the command line??

but of course i have a few more questions
does suse have prebuilt i686 optimized kernels


thanks in advance

as far as building gnome from tarballs it's a pain in the arse and it may kill you. The best part is when you think you are all done and it's all broke and acting funky. Here is a great project called garnome it's scripts that build gnome from tarballs for you, it's brilliant.

here is the gnome build dependencies list.

alot of makes and ./configures wink

Hi soulNOTHING, Im running into this problem right now. With RH/Fedora you could turn this off, there is a risk but I did it a long time with RH/Fedora and had no problems. Did you ever get this solved? I'm trying to install bittorrent-gui...

dapper@dan:~ # apt-get -f install bittorrent-gui

Hi,
looking for some of my own answers when i read this post. I was able to get apt, and synaptic to work in SuSE 9.1.

I installed apt via YaST from an RPM i grabbed off [url=http://rpm.pbone.net/[/url] (unfortunately you will have to resolve all the dependencies manually this one last time...)I had no luck with apt-get'ing synaptic, even when ignoring the GPG signiture check <apt-get -o GPG::Check=false install synaptic> package installed, but was broken.
Uninstalled RPM, then I downloaded and compiled the source, and using the errors from the MULTIPLE ./configure attempts filled in the missing peices.
Hope this helps, and isn't the MOST retarded way to do this. I am learning as I go smile

Oh. My issue: anybody know how to tell synaptic to ignore missing signitures like you can with apt-get?
