please help me out

The README.md says qt4 is required. It would take too long to figure out that part of it.

Do you have to compile it? you can use ‘dnf install keepass’.

Safety suggestion: Do not build as root. Use regular account. Only the “make install” to /usr/local requires elevated privileges. Preferably install to location, where you can write to as regular user.
