I just started playing around with arduino boards.  There’s a F11 how-to given here. Some things to remember for a 64bit Fedora.

  • Install Sun Java , a F12 x86_64 system needs the Linux64 package.
  • Set up your system to use Sun Java as given here. (Step 5 onwards)
  • Follow the howto link I’ve given above.
  • That’s it 🙂

As a side note, it seemed to work with OpenJDK too, (reset the alternatives to point to OpenJDK and tested)
