I downloaded inotify (3.14), and followed the instructions in the install file. i restarted the machine, but for some reason, inotify is not being installed.

Inotify exists of a kernel interface (since early 2.6 and up IIRC) and user land tools. So unless you needed to recompile and reload your kernel there is no reason to reboot the machine AFAIK. What's the Linux distribution you're installing this in, what commands did you use to install it and how did you test it was not installed?
