Prerequisite

User account

If you have just installed the OS, be sure to create a user account for yourself from root:

adduser <username>
passwd <username>

Add yourself to the sudoer list from root:

visudo # (add your entry after root "<username> ALL=(ALL)  ALL", at about line 77)

Logout of root, and log in as yourself.

=System development tools and libraries

Install system development tools (as root via su):

yum install gcc*
yum install subversion* expat* libtool* automake* bison* flex doxygen libjpeg-devel libpng libpng-devel

Sun Java

A Sun Java Development Kit is required. The plain package is fine, no need for NetBeans or Java EE. You can download the JDK from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp. Detailed installation instructions are found at http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/JavaOnCentOS (follow the instructions for "Sun JDK 1.6").
