Manual Install

Binary packages are available for Fedora Core 4 and Fedora Core 5 (also works on Fedora Core 6)

  1. Get the latest nightly build of Code::Blocks from the [/index.php?board=20.0 nightly builds forum].
  2. On FC4 you need an additional repository to get wxGTK 2.6 (see here how to add it)
  3. Install Code::Blocks.
sudo yum localinstall <Name_Of_Nightly_Build.rpm>

Fedora Extras

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 -
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

name=Fedora Linux $releasever - $basearch - freshrpms

The next time you use yum, it will use this repository, too.

Alternatively you can download the individual RPMs from:
