Procedure to install latex in Fedora 11


Could anyone please help me to guide installing LaTeX in Fedora 11. I could find from internet that I need to install tetex and kile. I have vim editor installed in linux. Do I need to install emacs editor too! Can I use 'yum install latex'! Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks in advance.

I tried. This is what I received.

[root@mypc owner]# yum install latex
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
No package latex available.
Nothing to do

1) yum search latex
.. and you will see lots of output.

2) su
3) yum install texlive texlive-latex
.. to get the basics.

And from ' yum search ' you have already seen all the
other installable .. if you want some special packages.

i take it you have NOT installed the "rpmfusion" repo??
see mjm's blog
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f11.html
and the fedora docs page
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/
and user guide
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/user-g...11/en-US/html/

Why rpmfusion ? .. http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration
Code:
# yum provides */bin/latex
texlive-latex-2007-46.fc11.i586 : The LaTeX front end for the TeX text formatting system
Source       : updates
Matched by:
Filename     : /usr/bin/latex
The packages are in 'fedora.repo' + 'fedora-updates.repo'

Some very special may come from rpmfusion, see yum search.
