I nedd for my device. Now I download it from sourceforge and compiling

No, sorry. There are legal questions raised about the origin of
that driver. It will not be included in Fedora unless/until it is
included in the upstream kernels from Linus. That last point is
generally true for most drivers.
There is some movement towards getting a driver to cover some of that
hardware. A driver for some similar hardware was released related
to Android IIRC. It is possible that this will eventually result in
a driver upstream. Unfortunately, that is probably at least months
away if not longer.
