Log on to your account (not root).
You need to install the SDCC package. Get the source tarball from Sourceforge at
(it will be called "sdcc-src-2.6.0.tar.gz" unless a newer version is available now)
Do NOT load the Suse RPMs- the pair of RPMs depend upon each other, and the RPM command
won't install either. Put the tarball in your home directory.
Double-click on the icon for the tarball. A window will appear; click on "Extract."
Click on "Extract" in the new window that appears. This will create a directory called
"SDCC" in your home directory.
Open up a terminal. (Click on "Applications" on the menu toolbar,scroll up to
"System" in the menu that appears,scroll down to "Terminal" in the *next* menu that
appears, then click on "Gnome Terminal" in yet another menu that appears)
In the terminal window, type "cd SDCC" and hit Enter.
Now type "./configure" and hit Enter.
Now type "make" and hit Enter.
now type "sudo make install" and hit Enter.
When asked for the root password, enter it.
type "cd .." and hit Enter.
Yeah, when trying a command like 'rpm -ivh sdcc-xxx.rpm', the system
complains about dependencies with sdcc-common and when trying 'rpm -ivh
sdcc-common-xxx.rpm', it complains about dependencies with sdcc...
But, if you download both packages in the same directory and try 'rpm
-ivh sdcc*.rpm', it works! Rpm will find cross-dependencies between
package if they are installed at the same time.
