Go to  On the first dropdown (that on the left) drop
the list and select either the 32 or 64 bit RPM version, as you require. Use the centre dropdown
to select the language you require, and the rightmost dropdown to select the version.  Then
click the "Download full version" button.  When the download is complete install it as you
would install any other RPM file.  No compilation is needed.
