This is NOT the place for "step-by-step" instructions. Such things are covered on the websites where you GET the software, read the instructions.

Again, as this has been said in your other threads, you shouldn't compile from source unless you NEED TO for a specific feature. You can easily download the packages you need from your online repositories. Fedora Docs has complete instructions:
