    Well these directions are crap! All it did was install it without any shortcuts or anyway to start and run it! I am so sick of half brained people only providing half directions! If your not going to produce full directions then don’t add any!

    • Ravi Saive says:


      Directions are perfect and till now no any issues, if you are looking Windows kind of shortcuts after install, then I recommend you to stick with Windows..

      Just install Development Tools as shown:

      # yum groupinstall "Development tools"
      # yum install gcc

      and then try to run the compile command again, it will work without any errors.
