Installing VBox 1.5.2 Guest Additions in OpenSUSE 10.3

Postby giornata » 21. Oct 2007, 11:21

I am unable to install VBox 1.5.2 Guest Additions in OpenSUSE 10.3. I receive error messages:

    Please install GNU make,
    Please install the GNU compiler


I've trawled through the package selector in Yast, but am not sure what entries to look for. Can anyone tell me the names of the packages that need to be installed.

Try "zypper install gcc make automake autoconf kernel-source" in Command Line as root.

I am in same boat with SUSE 10.3

So, I did "sudo zypper install gcc make automake autoconf kernel-source" and it asked for root password. Entered it and got:

package 'gcc' not found
package 'make' not found
package 'automake' not found
package 'autoconf' not found

But then it started downloading and installing a new kernel-source (2.6.22.9-0.4.i586)
Once that was done I tried again and got same "not found" messages but "skipping package 'kernel-source' then said "nothing to do.

now what?

You have to add repos. Try Yast2 / Software / Community Repositories.

That did it. Funny that a lot of the standard suse repos were not already added!

Had to manually install automake and autoconf. Then there was some weirdness where it apparently didn't like the version of gcc I already had so it got the newest one.

After a quick restart, I am good to go! You guys are the best.

VirtualBox OpenSuse "Please install GNU make"

On my VirtualBox-embedded OpenSuse 10.3, GNU make installation and GCC installation were impossible until I added these parameters in Yast repositories:
Start ... Computer ... Administrator settings
Software Repositories

(all are HTTP ; server is always download.opensuse.org )
1. directory: /repositories/openSUSE/10.3/standard/ name: "openSUSE:10.3"
2. directory: /update/10.3/ name: "openSUSE-10.3-Updates"
I also have (but I don't know if it is necessary):
3. directory: /repositories/openSUSE:10.3/standard/ name: "Dépôt principal (OSS)"
4. directory: /distribution/10.3/repo/non-oss/ name: "Dépôt principal (NON-OSS)"

Once this parametrization performed, the magic command
sudo zypper install gcc make automake autoconf kernel-source
worked fine. Thank you. :)
