Hi Atul,

for compilation running make is enough, but you also need to run 'make 
install' in order to be able to run Marble. Otherwise crucial data is 
missing and you see just a black map or it might crash.

Note that you either need sudo/root access for this (I don't recommend 
that approach), or you install to a local directory:

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=~/marble/export 
-DWITH_DESIGNER_PLUGIN=FALSE /path/to/marble/sources
make install
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/marble/export/lib ~/marble/export/bin/marble-qt

See http://marble.kde.org/sources.php for details.

The other packages (libgps etc) are optional, so you don't need to 
install them (see also http://marble.kde.org/packaging.php ). If you 
want some of them, OpenSuSe probably has packaged them and you can 
install them with its package manager.
