i've finally managed to persuade my dad to let me load linux onto our family comp, so yesterday i installed mandriva special edition 2005, everything seems to work (except my modem which isn't compatible, d'oh!) and i can boot windows or linux, however i need a good C++ IDE, preferably one which doesn't need any extra libraries or compilation. Can anyone help?

Thanx IE

Well, you should try command line compilation with gcc and g++. It's easy and fun. But if you reaaaaaaaaaaally have to have an ide check out kdevelop (check if its on your system first; some distros come with it.)

you can also try anjuta. its always better if you select them at installation stage.
i too would recommed to learn to use emacs as an IDE with gcc, gdb, cvs etc used behind-the-scenes, especially if you have long term plans with C/C++ development on GNU/Linux.
if you can install java runtime in GNU/Linux, then Eclipse IDE is an excellent choice, nothing can beat it, not even emacs.

Well theres your problem!

Mandriva, suse, fedora, they are all wannabe windows distros............. No security, you can't choose what you want to install, no manually set compiler options, no USE flags, and ohhhh the rpm files, horrible.

Switch to a distro that lets you make your installation.

The greatest Distro Ever

(I don't wanna sound like an advertisement or anything wink.gif I just hate mandrake)

No security

Linux isn't secure out of the box, but a Mandrake system can be secured just as well as a Gentoo, Slackware, or Debian system.
QUOTE
no USE flags

USE flags are a Gentoo-specific concept, are they not? There are good distros out there that don't have USE flags.

Mandrake actually isn't a bad distro for someone who's fairly new to Linux and doesn't want to spend 1+ day(s) installing and configuring an OS. I tend to recommend Slackware for Linux-newbies, but Mandrake is fine for someone wanting an easy transition from Windows to *nix. I wouldn't necessarily rush a user into a tedious Gentoo installation, although I myself am a big Gentoo fan and user.

Bah, don't be intimidated by it. It's just long and tedious, but it's worth it!

Linux systems aren't secure out of the box, and if you don't keep your system updated and put a little effort into securing it, it won't be secure. It's as simple as that, and the same concept holds true no matter what OS you're on.

I think what he means is they are more resiliant to viruses, mainly cos noone makes viruses that run on linux!
