Hi, I just would like to know if there is a dev/devel in fedora 17 for: cmake, flex, pkg-config. I searched in my cd of installation, add/remove programs and internet and found nothing. Thanks in advance.

Well, there is a flex-devel, but no cmake-devel or pkgconfig-devel.

Now for cmake, there is the cmake-fedora package, which includes some fedora only modules. Also there are numerous pkgconfig packages as well.

flex-devel is a F18 only package. There is no flex-devel package for F17 or earlier. In F16 (and probably F17 as well), a single header file is included in the "flex" rpm package.

BASH:~/-> rpm -ql flex | grep -e "\.h" -e "\.a"
Yeah, why bother creating a *-devel sub-package just for one single file?
