What is build-essentials for openSUSE

Tags: suse tools



This is the umpteenth time I looked up what build-essential is on openSUSE. For my purposes, it’s the devel_basis pattern.

To see what packages have the pattern,

zypper info -t pattern devel_basis

Yes it has a lot of packages, but I usually end up installing many of those anyways.

To install devel_basis,

sudo zypper install -t pattern devel_basis

That’s all. I’ve started remembering to use the notes on my site, which means it occurs to me that more notes would be helpful.
