OpenSUSE 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:
SL-HEAD / OSS-HEAD (still used also for SL10.1 / OSS 10.1):
- There is no installation source for HEAD and the commercial Java. Though, you can find the Sun Java on the SUSE Linux Add-on CD, for example: http://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/opensuse/distribution/SL-10.1-RC1/SUSE-Linux-10.1-RC1-i386.torrent
- 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.
