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.
