Will RPMs that are written for Mandrake work on Suse?
Many thanks to egghead for the cool .sig
ok. The reason for the question is, I've been trying to install SuperKaramba on my Suse 9.3 following the instructions found in Section 4 here and the install was failing. So I decided to try an RPM. I'll attach my config.log file so maybe someone can decipher what I'm doing wrong.
Anyway, the RPM did install. But it isn't the latest version of SuperKaramba and didn't install where\how I thought it would.
Any help is appreciated.
Had to convert the .log file to a .txt to upload it, which made it next to impossible to read.
If you can download a tarball you should be able to install and configure that OK. RPMs for Mandrake are probably not OK on SuSE as Mandrake is based on RedHat/Fedora and the file system differs as well as the packages.
This bit from your config file may give you a clue
You need to install gcc and from previous experience you probably need gnu make as well - I don't think SuSE installs these as standard. Probably both are in YaST somewhere - try development tools.configure:2763: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
