I suspect that rpm isn't aware that the package is installed because you used a .tar file.

If you installed it as a .tar package, using configure, make, make install and there were no errors it installed correctly. Now you need to figure out where the executable is so you can run the program. Fedora 7 is EOL, way past EOL for that matter. You'll have a lot of problems trying to use yum to install anything at all as the repositories have been moved and / or closed.
Moved to EOL (End Of Life) Versions.

The binary to run should be in /usr/local/bin if you have not modified the default prefix= and exec-prefix= options of "configure". /usr/local/bin is not in the path by default in Fedora, so either run the binary with the full path or add /usr/local/bin to your PATH variable.
