It seems SLES 11.2 (and OpenSUSE) are missing many devel (dev) packages common in other distros such as Ubuntu Server or CentOS. I understand that packages / deps may be wrapped up in other-named SLES packages, but it's difficult to track down, especially if you're coming from those other distros, which I am.
http://software.opensuse.org/developer/en isn't much help in this regard.
Can someone recommend a good source (or sources) for dev related packages for SLES? Perhaps its something simple I'm overlooking. Of course Googling around you can find numerous (shady) sites with RPMs and such but of course something more "official" would be ideal.
