The Software Development Tools in Linux

Linux includes these traditional UNIX software-development tools:

You can install these software-development tools in any Linux distribution. Xandros should have the tools already installed. In Fedora Core, select the Development Tools package during installation. In Debian, type apt-get install gcc and then apt-get install libc6-dev in a terminal window. In SUSE, choose Main Menu➪System➪YaST, click Software on the left side of the window, and then click Install and Remove Software. Type gcc in the search field in YaST, select the relevant packages from the search results, and click Accept to install. If you find any missing packages, you can install them in a similar manner.
