    Hey There! I am having problems with your guide…

    I am trying to install it on fedora 14. Since Yum only installs 2.11.

    When I try to unzip it i get follwing Message:

    gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

    What am I doing wrong? I am a terrible Noob with linux btw…
