    RE: Books for C/C++ Development on Linux?
    The error's are just that the libaries aren't there.... and EXIT_SUCCESS would be part of the library that it's missing. So basically I just need to know what i need to get to get C++ Fully working with net beans; Other than the plugins. And thanks for the info on KOffice, there site was saying I must compile from source.. so yeah, didn't even try the to install from terminal :D what exactly is yum btw? I've used it for installing apps, but there all just from guides, so not totally sure what it's function is, or it's meaning anyways.

    RE: Books for C/C++ Development on Linux?
    Sorry for the double post, but how can I get C++ working on NetBeans? I installed the plugin for C++ on the NetBeans plugin installer, and it wont even compile with the basic headers. [code] #include <-- Error /* * */ int main(int argc, char** argv) { return (EXIT_SUCCESS); <--- Error } [/code] Do I need to point to where my libraries are? Or is there another thing that I need to download for it to work?

    I have been trying to install KOffice, also Code::Blocks. Instead of using code blocks im now using NetBeans, however, I would still like to use KOffice.

    RE: Books for C/C++ Development on Linux?
    I use Code::Blocks with MinGW on windows operating systems instead of VSC++ so I'm familiar with it. I went to the site to download it not too long ago, and it doesn't look like they have one for Fedora. Can you just compile it from source and have it work for any linux-based operating system? If so, how do you compile from source without an IDE already installed?

    RE: Books for C/C++ Development on Linux?
    Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm liking Fedora a lot more than windows vista. As of right now I'm resizing my partitions so I have more space on my linux system. So far everything's been going pretty smooth, just having some trouble with flash player. I've tried re-installing it, and it says it's already installed, but I can't view videos on youtube or any flash files for that matter.

    Books for C/C++ Development on Linux?
    Hey everyone. Lately I've been kind of intrigued by some of the stuff I've been hearing about Linux operating systems. I personally have yet to install Linux on my box, but I have definitely been thinking about it. My main interest in computers, however, is programming. So I would like an OS that I can be assured has IDE's for C/C++, and also a nice interface. Seems I'll have to buy some more books specific to Linux on C since there isn't a win api. Any suggestions would be great. I'll do some reading around here, but I just registered so thought some recommendations would be nice. -Ian
