    Hi all,

    I am in my 3rd year overall of study and for my labs we are currently using Fedora and we use the command line with emacs to create and compile our Java code. I am wondering is there some kind of bundled package that has all the neccessary components neccessary to compile and execute Java code on Fedora? I installed Fedora on a partition on my drive and tried installing the gcc compiler but it kept saying I had to get all these other libraries which I eventually downloaded. It kept putting me through an endless loop saying I had to get the libraries I already downloaded. If anyone here is a programmer and uses the Terminal on Fedora to compile and execute Java code (with emacs) please get in touch with me with how you installed the neccessary components on Fedora. It's not the end of the world if no-one can help as I do most of my programming at uni, but it would still be awesome to be able to bring some of my work home and keep going at it (I have proplems and errors with some of my code and random ideas about looping mechanisms, recursion etc pop up in my head that could solve the problems).

    The ultimate thing would be if everything was included in the Fedora package so I didn't have to go and download everything else seperately, and everything would install all at once as Fedora itself is installing. If there is such a package I would love to know :).
