already got it working,
You have to use scons install method.
For reference:
1. install scons from www.scons.org (i used sources)
2. use scons command on top blender folder
optinal: make link from blender binary to some system bin forder (ln -s /usr/local/blender/blender /usr/local/bin /blender)

Although pointless for me as without 64bit Ati drivers, blender is quite slow :(

At the moment on the AMD64, nVidia seems to be the only company that has provided drivers. However, ATI products such as the Radeon 9200 and below are supported with 3D acceleration by the open sourced driver so you won't have any issues. Its only the later ATI cards that aren't supported fully (you get 2D acceleration but no 3D acceleration).

Viro is correct. I have a Radeon 9700 Pro which is only supported under i386 with the fglrx proprietary drivers. To see how other users are doing in blender on certain platforms and video cards, consult the blender hardware database here: http://blender.org/modules/gfxdatabase/ and http://www.blender3d.org/Support/index_old.php?sub=GraphicsCards

a bit new to scons - could you expand step 2 above "use scons on top of blender folder"? i have the blender-2.33a tarball extracted in /usr/local/bin/blender. started reading the scons manual, but thought since you've already got it working...

many thanks.

If you have scons already installed, just run command "scons " on blender directory, where also file Sconstruct is.

I tried to install Blender and on double clicking the executable, it says libSDL-1.2.so.0 not found. On the command: LDD blender, it indicated the above and additional file (libGLU...) missing. But I found both files in the dir lib64. So I guess, the compiled version is not forAMD 64. Then I found this site that talks about compiling the source. Could triplehead or anybody here be kind enough to post the complete steps in installing Scons, commands to compile and so on. I am brand new to Linux. Thank you.

PS. I have downloaded scons-0.96.1-1.noarch.rpm and also blender-2.36.tar.gz . I don't have internet connection on my linux box so I cannot do updates etc.

Why not use "fedora extras" for blender?
