I think you need to install a compiler (g++)

I don't use Fedora, but seeing how it's RedHat based is there no "yum install g++" or something of that sort?

No 'gcc-c++' or 'libstdc++-devel' on the cdrom. The DVD has more packages.

Make a package list with install dates : rpm -qa --last > last-packages
Sorted : rpm -qa --last | sort > last-sorted
A simple list : rpm -qa | sort > installed-packages


Installing packages on Fedora : 1) su <password> ; 2) yum install <package>

The c++ compiler and dependencies : yum install gcc-c++

# 8 :
It's "One library" = libstdc++-devel, and it's not on the very limited live cd.

The c++ library alone : No compilation. The package gcc-c++ is required.

I gave you a link about it and also it is already written here:
Quote:
Installing packages on Fedora : 1) su <password> ; 2) yum install <package>

The c++ compiler and dependencies : yum install gcc-c++
so you need to type (as root): yum install gcc-c++

please try it and send us the result
