Dear SLESler,

we just bought our first SLES11 SP1 servers. So it's the first time for
me to be in tough with SLES, we're used to work with openSuSE.

For installing mod_deflate of Apache httpd, the compiler requires zlib.
So I tried to add it, like I was used to with openSuSE, so I issued
zypper -n -q in zlib / zypper -n -q is zlib to install the package and
it's dependencys. Unfortunately the package doesn't appear to be
installed after my command. As you can see in following capture, the
package isn't installed before, pretends to install and after the
"installation" it's still not installed.

So I tried to install the stuff through YaST, but I had to wonder why
the -devel package aren't been listed at all.

So do you have an idea, how to add such packages?

Best Regards,

Sven

Hi
You need to grab the SLE 11 SP1 SDK for devel files;

http://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=zzeQqpY9nK4~

Download the iso image and save to the server somewhere, then use YaST
Add on Product to add the iso image, it will add the online
repositories and update one.
