thanks for this piece of information.
afaik, there are even gem packages in the CCRMA-repositories.

what you do need is a c++-compiler.
this answers your question "who uses g++, i dont even know how to get it.":
g++ is _the_ gnu c++ compiler. almost everyone who wants to compile C++
on linux (and os-x, btw) uses it. since Gem is written in C++ (as
opposed to Pd, which is written in C), you need g++.

no, not at all.
it is just that most people (including me) are using (a) debian
(flavour, like ubuntu); that's why there is a bias in the documentation.
since i don't know fedora so much, i will give you generic instructions:
- try to use an interactive (graphical or text-based; whatever you
prefer) package-manager frontend, where you can search for packages and
select them. search for "g++" and see what it gives you.
- ask the mother of all evil, google, what it gives you with "fedora
g++"; at least here the first four hits deal exactly with your problem
btw, you will need _a lot_ of other packages as well, if you want to
have fun with Gem.
they should be listed in some README.linux
(read through the debian section; the packages on fedora should be named
