I downloaded SuSE Linux 9.1 and installed it. Since it is a basic version and it doesn't recognize my modem, I tried installing a driver. That is when I discovered that "make" isn't included in the installation. I went to the SuSE web site and downloaded (using another computer)

I haven't used RPMs much so I'm not familiar with all the ins and outs of it. Anyway I typed (as root)
rpm -i make-3.80-184.src.rpm
I didn't get any errors or confirmations. All it did was drop down to the next line. It didn't install.

Can anyone help me know what to do to install this file.

all the development tools should be included in YaST, so, you should setup your package sources to an online ftp.

Either way, when you see an rpm with *.src.rpm , that means the rpm is a source package, and it needs to be built first in order to use it. You'll have to consult documentation because i realy don't remember how to do this.

Anyways, if you want to manually build source packages, you'll need the following rpms:


There may be other packages that are dependant on these, if you don't setup your package sources for ftp, then you grab any dependancies from here:
