Suse 9.1 Personal. and rpm/apt

Recommended Posts

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...
