I wrote a blog post that has IMHO much simpler (and up to date) instructions for compiling and running Blender 2.56 on Fedora 13 and 14.
I tried editing you wiki pages but as I'm new to your wiki I'm not sure how to edit them correctly because you have general pages that are for all distros (some are distro specific).
I tried editing wiki pages but soon realized that if I wrote some info that is Fedora specific that would be also seen on Ubuntu and OpenSuse pages and confuse non-Fedora users.
So if anybody can help me to make Blender wiki better I would appreciate the help.

Just added one missing dependency that I found, so tutorial is now 100% tested to work on Fedora 14.
If anybody has any questions or suggestions feel free to ask.
