Installing Development Tools on CentOS or Red Hat (RHEL)

Writing by on Tuesday, 14 of February , 2012 at 10:13 pm

So if you’ve stumbled here, you’ll know that things are never simple with Linux. You probably chose Minimal or Desktop install during your OS installation and now need to install all the crap that gives you dependency nightmares.

yum groupinstall development-tools
yum install zlib-devel

Refer to some good articles from nixCraft CentOS Linux Install Core Development Tools Automake, Gcc (C/C++), Perl, Python & Debuggers and CentOS Linux Install zlib-devel RPM Package

Make sure you’re able to install RPMs from your CDROM by adding it to yum.repos
