Srpms


I want to give Linux a try. Decided to use Fedora for now, but there seems to be two types of downloads (and I was unable to find an explanation as to which one to get.)

One set has 'SRPMS' and the other does not. I am hoping to drop this install on a mid-range development box, monkey around with some networking stuff and then test out a basic web server environment. This is all for Dev.

Please advise what the difference is between these two types of files (or even a link that will point me to a place where redhat explains it would be appreciated.)

SRPMS are the Source RPMS. You don't necessarily need these.
