I've installed it, managed to get through to the desktop UI, but when I ctrl alt f2 to shell, log in and attempt to use jed and other tools they aren't there.. how do I install the necessary files I need to develop code, compile, and edit.

Also, how do I set it so that it loads directly to text login and bypasses the winblows desktop UI altogether, I'm old school and don't like the graphical interface.

Please read for information on installing software with Fedora.

Please read for information on changing the default boot target.

I have experienced similar problem with Package Collections with the transaction "Pending" indefinitely. The only responses that I received were: 1. Someone experiencing the same behaviour 2. Remark about not providing information 3. Yet someone else noting it works on their installation. My suspicion is: a conflict with another program or hardware related. I don't know how to proceed. Fedora 18 works in this regard.

To add to this, I've tried Anaconda using the PackageKit application, I checked what I wanted, hit apply, and it sent them over to pending and it's been "waiting in the queue" for almost an hour with no visible signs that it is doing anything.
