Re: help installing Awesome-3.4.11 wm on fedora 16

it requires some tools to build the program. What I can tell from the massages you posted, it is complaining about gcc and cmake being not installed. You need to install them using
Code:
sudo yum install cmake gcc

I would also add, as a minimum, kernel-devel and automake. Programs that you compile often need the kernel sources, which kernel-devel provides.

Someone also provides rpms which might be easier.
