When I first tried linux, i messed with source files i knew nothing about configuring and to install.
I now find myself doing searches in my "install software" manager in my mandrake 10!
at times when i couldnt find anything to help me install source files, i would go to this page
they have it all and if they don't, someone who created an rpm file uploads it to them.
so my problem was...
do a search in "http://rpm.pbone.net/" and do something easy like gftp if you like ftp softwares. then if it asks for dependency do another search in that site untill you grap all the rpm file dependecy and sometimes it does take a long freakin time but its worth it when you have the end result.
when you find the rpm by the way, make sure you get the rpm for your operating systems. you will find so many pages for one particular file directing you to tons of operating systems for that one specific file that will work for your fedora....i found some gftp for fedora with no problem.
