Hi Magnus  , I tested a bit more  on a recent OpenSUSE Leap 15  with not many packages  installed .

I observed  some things :


  *   Latest OpenSUSE Leap 15   had “apt-get” as well  additionally  to zypper   ; however  the apt-get Ubuntu  package   names do not help much on SUSE -  so I put zypper  in the search list in front of apt-get
  *   Zypper package names were okay , the helpful output I got  (for cups / alsa / x11 ) was correct
  *    I added the gcc/g++  packages as well   ( you usually  run into this on a “fresh” system without gcc )

Hi Magnus ,


  *   Have you verified that this actually works? E.g. by starting in a fresh SUSE installation, running configure,
  *   and then running the corresponding line and noticing that this helped configure get further on? Or did you just copy the yum/apt package names?

A bit of  both  ��  .
I had  2 Linux  installs  with incomplete  packages  (e.g. cups and  X-related stuff was missing).
I  added the names  with the “missing …”  output   from  those 2  Linux  installs  with incomplete  packages  .

However some packages we depend on  were already  available .

If you want I could  try to test on a  fresh   OpenSUSE .


Best regards,
         Matthias

Hello, please review the following  change .



Currently  the  configure-step  outputs  help  for  a number of  packages + related installation calls  in case of missing dependencies  (like cups / alsa etc.) .

This help output step   covers a few  tools (like apt-get).





However the OpenSUSE / SLES tool zypper  is not supported .

This  change adds  output for  zypper .

Thank you for making the OpenJDK configure system even more self-helping!

This looks good to me.
