Question GCC and other packages installation


Its the first time i've used linux seriously in about 8 years and i've totally forgotten ho to script and install things so i'm going to need a little help to get running again. I'm sure i'll start remembering things then.

I'm usoing fedora 20 and it doesnt seem to have an rpm manager or anything like that and it certainly doesnt seem to have an easy way to install gcc so tha i can compile programs that i've dowloaded the source code for.

Can anyone push me in the right direction please?

Welcome to LQ.

The package manager is `yum´.

# yum install gcc-c++
I.e. the c++ part of gcc takes care that all gcc dependencies are installed.

All tools for compiling : # yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
( Ref. $ yum grouplist )

.. compile programs that i've dowloaded the source code for.
The most software is available with 'yum' :
$ yum search <name> (or part of name)
.. to find one of the ~20,000 available packages.

fedora 20 is still using "yum"
Fedora 21 WILL BE CHANGING to a new program
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTU0NjM

there is NO good gui so do not even look

use the terminal based " yum "
for know you can still use the Mjmwired Fedora 19 guide
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f19.html

but you really do need to read the fedora documentation
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...ide/index.html

you might also want to read through the fedoraforum
http://www.forums.fedoraforum.org/index.php
