Gambas (rpm)

Postby baron » Wed Nov 30, 2005 11:25 am


I cannot get the source code for Gambas which on the cover disks to work. I went to the gambas website and noted that there binaries for a variety of distros.. I am using Suse 10.0 and when I went to the recommended site to upload them I was greated with a plethora of rpms leaving me totally confused as to which I needed.

So, can you advice me which i should download or better still include the binaries for the various distros on the next cover disk.

Go here: ... SuSE_10.0/

And grab 'gambas-1.0.13-0.gbv.1.i586.rpm' and install it -- it'll tell you which dependencies are required, and you can grab those from the same site.

Alternatively, ask them to make an Autopackage to save themselves (and us!) the hassle :-)
