I'm not a Fedora user, but this should lead you on the right way. Try going
into terminal then typing *yum groupinstall "Development Tools"*. The quotes
are important.

Once you've done that, try these commands. Omit square brackets.

cd /path/to/extracted/tar/file [go to right place]
./configure [tell compiler about your system]
make [generate instructions for compiler]
sudu su [change to root user]
make install [compile software]
exit [return to normal user]
