Development rpm
It may be possible that the [http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/development/testing rpm] works on the current core version of Fedora. For example, the fc7 rpm will run on fc6, with a few small issues. The fc8 version has been verified with Fedora 8 and 9. This usually works, but it is not a supported method, ie: if it breaks the error may not be with gramps or the fedora build, but with the differences between fedora versions. In other words you're on your own with trouble shooting, and if you do report a bug then be sure that it isn't to do with the version mismatch - don't confuse the developers/builders with introduced problems (one's outside their control).
Assuming you have an existing version of gramps installed, then to install the development rpm for fc6fc9... yum --enablerepo=extras-development update gramps
if you don't have any version installed, then '''install''' it using...
yum --enablerepo=extras-development install gramps
With For Fedora versions 6 and older, the release of fc7, extras will apparently no longer exist as a seperate necessary repository. This package will no doubt be found using is called '''yum extras--enablerepo=development install gramps''', or similar.
