Installing Code::Blocks nightly build on Fedora
This is a stub, help Code::Blocks by expanding this article!
Binary packages are available for Fedora Core 4 and Fedora Core 5 (also works on Fedora Core 6)
- Get the latest nightly build of Code::Blocks from the nightly builds forum.
- On FC4 you need an additional repository to get wxGTK 2.6 (see here how to add it)
- Install Code::Blocks.
sudo yum localinstall <Name_Of_Nightly_Build.rpm>
Basicly installation on FC5/FC6 should be something along the lines:
First, find the package name:
yum list 'codeblocks*'
it should return: codeblocks, codeblocks-contrib, codeblocks-devel
su - <password> yum install codeblocks codeblocks-contrib
You will need to have the 'extras' repository enabled. This means that you should
have enabled=1 in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-extras.repo
- Maybe add a howto using yumex?
wxGTK for Fedora Core 4
There is no official wxGTK 2.6 package for FC4, so you need to add a new repository to install it. Create as root a new file /etc/yum.repos.d/freshrpms.repo with this content
[freshrpms] name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms enabled=1 gpgcheck=0
The next time you use yum, it will use this repository, too.Alternatively you can download the individual RPMs from: http://stentz.freshrpms.net/rpm.html?id=473
