Devel Hell with OpenSUSE

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to build the source on OpenSUSE and I keep getting errors. I'll try to build and it'll say it's missing libminiupnpc-devel. Then I'll install libminiupnpc-devel and build again, then it'll say I'm missing libXcursor-devel. I'll install libXcursor-devel and then build again, and it'll say I need this-or-that other package. This is really stupid! The dependencies should have all been installed in the first command, but they're not. This is different to Fedora. Fedora was much easier.


Update: one minute later I get it working. Okay good but there is a quirk here with what packages are installed on OpenSUSE versus other Linux.
