I have just installed a SuSE test system. I
have used Debian/RedHat/Slackware in the past but am doing some work for my
university who use SuSE. I have a few problems. Firstly the
hierarchy is different, eg documentation in /usr/share/doc instead of /usr/doc,
and many other things in /usr/share that would normally just be in /usr.
The result of this is that installing RedHat RPMs put the files in the wrong
place. Furthermore, when getting RPMs from RPMFind.net, including VM, JDE,
ERC, Gnus etc I get an error message about not being able to find
/var/tmp/rpm-info. Has anyone had similar problems, or built SuSE specific
RPMs or have any other useful advice?
Any help much appreciated.
