All the libs and executables you need to compile digikam.

This is nothing you play with. Simply search for fedora digikam 2.0
source RPM (srpm), copy this to your local harddisk and run

yum localinstall /path/to/digikam*.srpm

all other packages you need to compile this source rpm are installed as
dependencies automatically. You can remove the digikam source rpm
afterwards but the dependencies are still there.

It is of much higher risk to install libs from source which may be
already installed but without development package (libs usually have a
-develop package too).
