Unhappy how to get root and how to install libraries, netcdf, and wrf in fedora 14


I'm a newbies user of fedora 14. I found difficulties on installing software in fedora 14. I'm trying this for 2 weeks and still there is no progress. I am forced to use fedora 14 as my OS since WRF is good in linux OS. I am hoping for soonest response for this matter because I need to run this as soon as possible for my thesis. and also A step by step solution for me to understand and install w/o any problems. Thanks in advance

Hi there,

Welcome to LQ!!!

To become root you can type the following command at console: su - root.

Here is the link which will guide you on how to install software or any packages: http://www.fedorafaq.org/#installsoftware

If you would have mentioned the challenges that you are facing while installing a software we could have mentioned a more specific approach.

More and more distro's disallow root access. You should easily be able to use the sudo command.

example.

sudo apt-get install (put name of what you want)

command generally is the way to install stuff over command line.

A equally easy way is to use the distro's software management they provide in the gui. Might be called other terms but all do similar tasks.


If you find a specific issue then post it. I feel sure someone would have a good guess to help.

The OP "jervie" is using fedora
Fedora uses yum and NOT the Debian "apt-get"
you can not use Apt-get on fedora !
also
Fedora BY DEFAULT dose not use"sudo"
it is not set up by default because fedora dose not use it .

Quote:

not with fedora
fedora uses the terminal
there are some not so good gui's for fedora BUT "yum" in the terminal is the Recommended and BEST way .

Quote from the Fedora official documentation:
"gpk-application is the GNOME GUI standard software manager in Fedora since version 9 and looks like the screenshot shown below. gpk-application is used to install, remove and search for packages in Fedora systems."
I can't find anything about the command line being "recommended".

As you can see, Jervie, any question here gets a flood of variant answers some of them from people who actually use Fedora.

yum is the preferred tool
there as a "so / so" gui yumex
but the terminal program yum is best
yumex can NOT run a "whatprovides" quarry

jervie

have you done any reading up on Linux ?
like read the documentation i posted in post#4
Quote:
how to install dvd hardware installer in fedora 14
(like startup exe of motherboard)
you DO NOT install Microsoft ONLY drivers in linux !
the hardware dose NOT use MS only drivers
it is already built in
fedora already SUPPORTS your dvd drive - no MS driver needed ( even if you could install a ms .exe in linux you would not need it. )

Linux 101 - two good online books
http://rute.2038bug.com/rute.html.gz
http://tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-G...tml/index.html
from the terminal or the gui ?
-- the gui --
the SAME as in Microsoft windows 7
r-click and select "copy"
r-click and select "paste"


but for system files you need to be root
Code:
su -
cd /to/file/location
cp file /location


please read the fedora documentation
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/index.html
the users guide for 14
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...ide/index.html

learn the basics first
if you can not copy a file then.......

Code:
su -
enter root password
Code:
yum -y install netcdf
It will install, no manual compiling needed.

Edit: If you need any additional development/connector components do a
Code:
yum search netcdf
and then put them in a yum install line like so
Code:
yum -y install netcdf-devel ncview
