The easy way of doing it is installing apt-get for Fedora, which you can get here FreshRPMs (The non-dev binary package will do the job). Apt-get does several things, including updating packages you already have installed, as well as installing new packages if they're available. Anyways, install apt-get. Then use this command:
apt-get install blackbox
