SuSE Linux Enterprise Server SP2 w/ active subscription.
I’m trying to compile the latest BIND 9 binaries in which I need openssl header files to do so. But the repository does not contain libopenssl-devel. After some research online I’m seeing that this RPM is only available through another Novell product SuSE Enterprise Software Development Kit. I’m used to having access to devel rpms with other distros no problem. Do I need a different repository or something?
So i checked my entitlement under mirrors and the SDK is there. However, since I’m already on SLES SP2, can I just use the repositories below, or do I need to use SLE SDK SP1 first and then go to SLE SDK SP2?
So when i activated my mirrors, i got a generated user name and password to authenticate to the repositories and then i associated the mirrors to my SLES subscription. However, when i go to add the repository, it says permission denied and to check my NCC for a valid registration but I cannot find where i activate SLE SDK in my NCC like i did for SLES SP2. Please advise.
YaST add on products has a ‘specify URL’ option, shouldn’t that be able to connect to the SLE SDK repository for what I need? So the only way to do this is download the entire SLE SDK iso just for a couple devel RPMs? You mentioned i can used the entitled mirrors for the repository as a second option to downloading the image.
Well that’s the thing, i got the generated user name and password to authenticate to the SDK repositories from the mirror entitlement in my NCC (with the mirrors associated to my SLES subscription). But when i go to add the repository, it says permission denied and to check my NCC for a valid registration even though my NCC gave me a user and pass to log in. I will download the ISO regardless but just trying to make it easier on myself to go through the repository.
