I am using SLES 11 SP and need to install some add-on packages so I can
build our product. I previously worked with CentOS where the packages
were named as follows.

gcc-c++ (This one seems to have been installed)
libaio-devel (This one seems to have been installed)
kernel-dev (What would this be named in SUSE and where do I find it?)
qt4-devel (What would this be named in SUSE and where do I find it?)
libXv-devel (What would this be named in SUSE and where do I find it?)

I have been surfing on-line for a couple of hours and cannot determine
what these packages are named in SUSE and where to find them. Can anyone
help?

Hi
You need to install the SLE SDK (just dvd1) for a start to get the devel
packages;

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

Download the iso image and place on your server, then use YaST add on
products to initialize the online and update repositories. Else visit
the Novell Customer Center and check your mirror credentials to
manually add.

From the output of uname -a will give your flavor, eg default, desktop
etc

kernel-{your kernel flavor}-devel
libqt4-devel
xorg-x11-libXv-devel
