I am trying to install these on SLES11 x86_64.

I have added the SDK DVD 1 to the repository.
I have installed ruby development headers from it.

When I went to install subversion and passenger, I ran into dependency
problems because gcc and glibc-devel are nowhere to be found!

Any ideas?

TIA,
Dan

Nevermind.

They were on SLES11 Disk 1. Crazy me, I thought the C compiler would
be on the SDK disk.

I also thought that Yast indexed all packages on the local disk so once
a Repository was read (e.g. SLES 11 Disk 1) that it would know where to
find all the packages on it.

This is a serious flaw, because it means that all disks have to be
available (online) when doing a search in order for a package to be
found.

Thanks anyway,
Dan
