Install Lazarus on Suse

This is tested with OpenSuse 11.x but it should work with the commercial version, too.

Release versions of Lazarus and FPC can be found in Packman community repository. Add it using the Yast tool, then install Lazarus. Yast takes care of FPC dependency automatically.

Suse uses KDE desktop by default. KDE is built on QT. It means that Lazarus QT bindings work well and typically don't require extra packages to be installed. Gtk2 bindings need at least 'gtk2-devel' package which has dependencies for many other devel packages. It is easy to install from Yast repositories.
