Hello There thank you for the answer posted. This is what happened. I'm real sorry if I'm doing something really stupid.

I am extremely new to linux having only installed fedora yesterday.I have come across several issues already. But the main one is that it doesn't appear to have any libraries attached to it. I established that i appear to need GCC. I found the code yum however suggested that I use the following text:

su - yum groupinstall " Development Tools" "Development Libraries "

I put this into the terminal and it returned with command that I must do this under root user. currently my user id appears to be my name@localhost documents but i have no idea how to change this. I have to say I'm becoming more and more frustrated. Please can someone help.
