build-essentials

I'm new to fedora but have been a bit familiar with debian based distributions and hence i'm going through a "culture-shock" right now.

For a certain device to work, i need to use backports from linux rc sources. On Ubuntu I did the following to get this device work:

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git echo "options ath10k_core skip_otp=y" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k_core.conf

wget http://filebin.ca/2LVgpjSgiT56/backports-ath-2015-11-05.tar.bz2 tar -vxf backports-ath-2015-11-05.tar.bz2 cd backports-ath10k-2015-11-05 make defconfig-ath10k make sudo make install

cd ..

git clone https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/ath10k/ /lib/firmware/ sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/QCA9377 /lib/firmware/ath10k/ sudo mv /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1 /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-5.bin

On fedora I replaced apt-get with dnf, and to my amusement found 1. there's no build-essential in fedora 2. linux-headersxxxxxx are called kernel-headers in fedora. 3. git is already installed.

So, the question is, without build-essential, how do i install the backport?
