Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

What problem are you encountering exactly? If you'd like an answer you'll need to provide more information, such as what command(s) did you use, what were the exact errors, etc... In the meantime, here are some basic instructions for Fedora and CentOS (and general kernel compilation steps too).

Looking forward to your participation in the forums. Have fun with Linux.

Kind regards,
