Fedora Development Packages


I have just got my new machine and I’ve been setting it up for development. However I couldn’t remember any of the package names. So as a future reference for me (and anyone else who needs it).

$ su –
# yum install git
# yum groupinstall development-tools
# yum groupinstall development-libs

and from bruce cowan (bruce89) – for gtk3 libraries
# yum install “pkgconfig(gtk+-3.0)”

This installs all kinds of tools, including gcc, doxygen, make and g++. All 4 of which I use and also installs most of the development tools I could ever want for low level code development. The development-libs contains lots of useful libraries which I’ll never probably use but they’re useful anyway (especially when compiling other people’s code).
