Braindead - Where's the app installer?


I have my laptop home with a fresh Fe2 install on it, and I didn't install gcc. I need to install it to compile my wireless driver, but I don't have the install CD's here.

Where's the Fedora equivalent of apt-get on debian?

Thanks guys.

Note: 'I tried up2date install gcc' but it just hangs out checking RPM dependencies indefinitely.

You will be thinking of Yum (which I think is already installed on your system). If not, apt4rpm will fit the bill.
