I don't see anything in the repositories. Are you intending to install a tar file or an rpm that you've gotten elsewhere?

Re: please how to install ironhide or bumblebee

I have no idea what a ppa is. Something specific to Ubuntu? With Fedora, if it isn't available through yum (yum install package) with the standard repositories then you either need to add a yum repository that provides the package(s) you're looking for, get an .rpm file and install it or get a .tar file and build it. Of course, there is no guarantee any of these methods will work as expected. It may require a bit of work if the packages aren't specifically targeted to the Fedora release you're using. Then, even if they are advertised to work with your Fedora release you may get unexpected results.

Running Fedora is quite a bit different than running Ubuntu.


Edit: Or hope that someone provides a link to exactly what yor are looking for, as bossep did while I was writing this reply.

PPA is a Ubuntu thing, called a Personal Package Archive, I'd not heard of it before either

Thanks for pointing to that!
The install went fine, the only thing that went wrong was the dkms part.
Turns out you also need to move the dkms.conf file to its subdirectory.
