I need to use the latest version of gradle, currently 5.6. However I already have a gradle package installed on my Fedora 30:
[xxx@wasteland ~]$ sudo dnf info gradle Last metadata expiration check: 1:14:49 ago on Sun 25 Aug 2019 01:04:31 AM CEST. Installed Packages Name : gradle Version : 4.4.1 Release : 4.fc30 Architecture : noarch Size : 11 M Source : gradle-4.4.1-4.fc30.src.rpm Repository : @System From repo : updates Summary : Build automation tool
4.4.1 is an old version, but it seems there is no newer package available in Fedora repos.
I know I can download the latest version from gradle.org, unzip it and add it’s bin to my PATH, but I would have prefferred a package.
I don’t remember if I’ve installed gradle on my own in the past or it came with the distribution. When I try to uninstall it, 45 dependent packages will be removed as well. I don’t know if it’s safe to do that. Does F30 need it for something else?
