A couple things, you should always tell us what the error is. It is impossible to help with " I get error message." What was the error? But see the next point first!

The major issue most likely that Fedora 10 is years out of date and most likely does not have the requisite software dependencies you may need. The current release is Fedora 18 (Fedora 10 reached end of life on 12/17/2009!!!!)

And if you told us what the error actually WAS, we might be able to help. You've given us NO details, so no one can help you. Where did you download this software from? Did you read the instructions on how to install it??

Also, if you're using Fedora 10, that may be your problem right there...you are EIGHT versions behind. Old OS usually equals problems when running recent software, since it needs things that just aren't available on an old operating system.
