About openSUSE

openSUSE project is a worldwide community program sponsored by Novell that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. The program provides anyone with free and easy access to SUSE Linux.

Build Instructions

The build procedure is the same as for other Linux systems.

Missing devel packages

The default openSUSE installation media do not include all the needed packages because of CD/DVD space limitation. The missing -devel packages that are necessary to build OOo can be found at various openSUSE mirrors. It is enough to add the respective installation source into YaST. For example:

SL10.0 / OSS 10.0:

   http://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source
   http://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.0-OSS/inst-source-java


SL-HEAD / OSS-HEAD (still used also for SL10.1 / OSS 10.1):

   http://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/opensuse/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source

Some notes:

  • The installation sources are quite big (provide packages for all architectures), and it takes a while until they are loaded. They are also quite memory demanding :-(
  • The missing packages can be found at go-ooo.org as well.
