Helpful tips for getting build running

This is just a notepad as I (Michael) recently moved to Fedora Core 5 for full time development use.


I used the Java 5 install from JPackage (although any would probably do).

Then I used:

yum install ant
yum install ant-junit
yum install ant-nodeps
yum isntall ant-trax


The trax is needed for XSLT work for the manual, I believe.


Overall, I saw a >20 to 30% speedup when I jumped to linux from windows, I highly recommend it.


An outstanding issue is with encoding, and tests that use non latin chars (like some of tirellis portugese tests) - any info appreciated.
