How to easily install dev tools (gcc)

When installing from source you need compilers and other tools. If a ./configure script says it needs gcc, this is for you.

If you have Fedora CDs, the easy way to install is though the applications tool. Run Main Menu > System Settings > Add/Remove Applications. Under the Development category, check Development Tools box and click Update. Easy.

The prefered way to install software is with rpm packages via yum, however.

Edit: Apparently later versions of yum support groups. Get the list of groups with
yum grouplist
To install development tools run
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

You can do that.

Doing it with the Add/Remove Applications tool gets you all the base packages in the development category.
