Best way to upgrade Gambas

Rolf-Werner Eilert-2
Yesterday I installed Gambas on a machine with Suse Leap. Under Suse, I
like to use Yast to collect the necessary libraries etc. to go sure that
nothing is missing. So far so good.

Now I have a somewhat current Gambas version on this machine, but if I
want to follow its development and install future versions, how should I
proceed?

Up to now, I used to have  a self-compiled Gambas, but if I de-install
the distro's version, won't I loose the linked libraries too?

Maybe there is someone here who knows Suse. As to Tumbleweed, I wouldn't
use it here because this machine is going to be a production server system.

Regards
Rolf

OpenSuse is not much different from any other RPM-based distribution.

On OpenSuse Leap 42, I rely on the Packman repo to keep my Gambas package up to date. I do not compile from source.

Uninstalling the packaged version should not remove the necessary libraries unless you specifically instruct Yast or Zypper to
do so. You will, of course, need to have installed the development (-devel) versions of certain libraries in order to compile
your own local version.
