cannot install in on Linux

I just installed suse 11.1 on my desktop. However, I failed to install calibre on it. I am really confused.

You'll need to describe what you tried to do (as specifically as you can.)

The command line:

Code:
sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read(); main()"
will install it, but you must make sure you have python 2.6, glibc 2.10 and xdg-utils installed first. There may be other dependencies.

The Calibre Linux download page has this information.

I'm not familiar with SUSE; you may need to read up on installing software. If you're a Linux noob, you might want to try Ubuntu instead of SUSE -- it's pretty user-friendly.
